Anyone who knows me knows that 5SOS are one of my favourite bands, so when they took a break, and with One Direction, and Mcfly also on breaks, I was lost.
After nearly two years away, the 5SOS boys are officially back with new music and their 5SOS3 Tour which kicks off on March 20th, so close!! I won’t lie to you, I fully waited up until midnight to hear Want You Back – when I say wait up we all know that I have NO sleeping pattern but saying I waited up just sounds soooo much better! After a two year break, I was certainly not disappointed and with one listen to Want You Back all my love for 5SOS came flooding back, and I was ready for the 5SOS apocalypse to happen.
After dropping Want You Back, the boys then announced a tour, which is coming to the UK for one date, London 5th April – and you best believe that I am so ready to get myself tickets! If you are like me, and you just NEED tickets, then they go on sale Friday 2nd March and because everyone needs to be prepared I’ve got the tour dates below for you guys, so find your city, get your laptops set up, and get ready to battle for your tickets! One thing that I can’t wait for with the 5SOS3 Tour is the atmosphere – if you have never been to a 5SOS gig then you are seriously missing out. The boys put an unbelievable amount of energy in the performance and it ripples through the arena creating an atmosphere that you can’t even describe. The entire arena is full of joy, with fans of ALL ages enjoying their music.

Now, if you’ve listened to 5SOS for a while, you’ll notice that there is a little bit of a change in sound in Want You Back, and a note from Michael comments on this, with him saying “This song is the perfect stepping stone for the new direction of the band, as it feels more mature and evolved but also sticks to our roots. I think that everyone will be able to feel the new energy and presence that exists within our band now” – and if Want You Back is anything to go by then the new music is going to be incredible and I can’t wait!!! I am particularly interested in seeing this new energy and presence that Michael speaks about because the boys are already one of the most energetic bands I have ever seen perform live!
I am so happy that the 5SOS boys are back, and 2018 is certainly going to be their year! Download / Stream ‘Want You Back’ HERE – You won’t regret it!
