It's here! The first official book from international pop-punk sensation 5 Seconds of Summer, Hey, Let's Make a Band!, chronicling the group's amazing journey to super-stardom.
These four Australian boys " Luke, Michael, Calum and Ashton " are a global sensation. From posting videos of themselves performing cover versions of hit songs to YouTube, they were spotted by One Direction who invited them as their support act on their first worldwide tour. Little did they know that within a year, their first EP would hit #1 in 48 countries on pre-orders alone, they'd have twitter followers and YouTube hits in their millions, plus a massive family of devoted fans " and all before even releasing their first single.
Having now stormed to the top of the charts around the world with -She Looks So Perfect' and -Amnesia', the boys have been propelled to international stardom in a massive way. With an upcoming sell out -Rock Out With Your Socks Out' arena tour in 2015, on top of supporting 1D on their huge worldwide stadium tour in 2014, writing music with everyone from the likes of McFly to Kaiser Chief's Nick Hodgson and winning MTV's Breakthrough Band of the Year award; the guys have a lot to talk about. And luckily for us, that's exactly what they have done!
A coolly designed, gorgeous package that replicates 5SOS's signature style, Hey, Let's Make a Band! is jam packed full of over 100 unseen photos exclusively shot especially for the book. With revealing insights and memories from the boys themselves, this is the only official account from the boys, telling their own story of their incredible rise to fame in their own words.
What you're about to read is pretty much our story so far. It really does seem like only last week we played our first gig at the Annandale Hotel in Sydney. Since then we've been given the opportunity to turn into the people and musicians we wanted to be. The people who gave us the opportunity were the fans. The ones who stand for hours on end to watch us play, the ones who would support us four dudes through thick and thin.
Everything goes back to the fans.
You guys are our everything.
Love Cal, Luke, Ash and Mike
