Hailing from a small town in the western suburbs of Sydney, Australia, 5 Seconds of Summer (@5SOS) blazed onto the scene and the charts with a collection of No. 1’s, including their U.S. debut on the Billboard 200 with their self-titled album. The pop-punk sensations sold out their first U.S. tour in less than five minutes and will embark on a worldwide headlining arena and amphitheater tour in 2015. In addition to taking to the stage at this year’s American Music Awards®, the band has the opportunity to walk away with a trophy, as they were nominated for «New Artist of the Year Presented by Kohl’s. Universal. 2014.
