5 Seconds of Summer are known for their historic feat of achieving biggest first-week sales for a group with a debut album, ever since Chris Daughtry’s 2006 self-titled album. They are also considered as the first Australian act to achieve a number-one album with their debut release.
Luke Hemmings and 5 Seconds of Summer have been determinedly working on their sophomore release. They have finally chosen a weird name for their long-awaited second record. According to the official Twitter page, for 5 Seconds of Summer, the title of their second record album will be ‘Tender SOS’. However, later they claimed that the title was entirely a joke for fans in order to give them a hint regarding the type of songs on their upcoming record.
On 5th March, this Australian pop-punk band spoke through their Twitter account that they are ready to make their upcoming album, a soft ballad-strewn affair. 5 Seconds of Summer wrote, ‘’ Wrote a ballad today…The album will be called Tender SOS #tendersos. No not tinder SOS.’’
Meanwhile, 5 Seconds of Summer star Ashton Irwin revealed that the band hasn’t been writing any tunes with the hot YouTube sensation, The Janoskians. Recently, the Australian pranksters told Capital FM that they recently worked on a song with bassist Calum Hood, known as ‘Cloudy’. According to them, it was co-written by Calum Hood and is called Cloudy. They went as far as to say that they really liked it, and it was one of their favorites as well.
They further declared that the track was so huge that 5 Seconds of Summer wanted to release it on their own. They were friends of Calum Hood for a long time before they blew in popularity and got big. The band revealed that they simply had a fun time in the studio together, while making memories.
Ashton Irwin later declared that they didn’t know about it and haven’t been co-writing anything with The Janoskians. However, the band has been working on new tunes with Sum 41’s Bonnie McKee and Deryck Whibley. They are also preparing for their ‘Rock Out With Your Socks Out’’ tour.
