5 Sec­onds of Sum­mer reach new heights

The Middletown Press (Middletown, CT) - - KICKOFF -

LOS AN­GE­LES — 5 Sec­onds of Sum­mer were al­ready in shock when their al­bum beat out Bey­once and Jay-Z for the top spot on the Bill­board 200 chart this sum­mer. But hav­ing their sin­gle “Young­blood” reach the No. 1 spot on the pop songs chart and be­come an in­ter­na­tional smash hit has the band in awe.

“Young­blood” re­cently spent five weeks at No. 1 on the pop songs charts. The track is spend­ing its sev­enth week in the Top 10 on the all-genre Hot 100 chart.

Singer-gui­tarist Michael Clif­ford calls the song “au­then­ti­cally us” and said it al­lows fans to “see the real ver­sion of our­selves and our mu­sic in a very bold way than what we’ve de­liv­ered in other songs.”

The Aus­tralian band also in­cludes Luke Hem­mings, Calum Hood and Ash­ton Ir­win.
