Changing their tune! Heartbroken Five Seconds Of Summer sing about long lost love in new video for latest single Amnesia

Fueled by their feel good anthems, Five Seconds Of Summer’s self titled debut album has shot to the top of charts around the world.

But now the boys are changing their tune for the new single Amnesia, crooning soulfully about a lost love they’d wish they could forget.

Michael Clifford, Luke Hemmings, Calum Hood and Ashton Irwin are seen singing somberly in the official video clip for the single, which was released on Thursday.

Flashbacks to happier times are seen interspersed between closeups of the heartthrobs jamming about old love.


Michael, Luke, Calum and Ashton are seen at summer house parties, road trips and frolicking inside a cosy home with friends and girls.

It’s a far cry from the desolate imagery of them bearing their souls all alone in desolate buildings and empty homes.

'Sometimes I start to wonder, was it just a lie?,' they sing in the chorus, 'if what we had was real, how could you be fine? 'Cause I'm not fine at all.'



The Australian band set records on Wednesday when it was revealed their self-titled debut album had topped the Billboard 200 charts.

In what was the third-largest debut of the year, the album sold 259,000 copies in one week - the highest selling debut album in almost eight years.

Drummer Ashton tweeted: ‘To everyone that’s been a part of the journey so far we love you so much, you guys made the album number #1 in the US, we are speechless…’

While guitarist Michael showed his colourful Australian side: ‘Literally CANNOT believe we can say we had a number 1 album in the US… holy s**tballs. WE FINALLY BEAT FROZEN.’

Their success is, of course, not only extending to America. The album also topped charts in Argentina, Portugal, Italy, Ireland, New Zealand, Australia and more.








Looks So Perfect! 5 Seconds Of Summer becomes first Australian act to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard music charts

Their name may be refer to just a few seconds but looks like 5 Seconds Of Summer are set for more than 15 minutes of fame.

The Australian band set records on Wednesday when it was revealed their self-titled debut album had topped the Billboard 200 charts.

The pop-punk foursome has been winning teenage girls hearts for the best part of three years, and now that they have finally put out their full length album, they are also winning over their wallets too.


The Sydney boys Luke Hemmings, Michael Clifford, Calum Hood and Ashton Irwin have sold 259,000 copies of their album - which features singles Amnesia and She Looks So Perfect - since its release on July 22, just beating out soundtrack smash hit Frozen.

According to Billboard, this makes the band the third-largest debut on the chart this year and the highest selling debut album in almost eight years - band Daughtry, sold 304,000 of its first album’s first week in 2006 with American Idol star Chris Daughtry at the helm.

As the news broke of their achievement the band quickly announced a headlining North American tour, which will build on the few concerts they were previously doing in November, with the wider performance schedule kicking off July 17 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada.




For a group which started off just as some teenagers playing covers on YouTube, the feat is impressive enough, but it is even more impressive for a band from Down Under.

According to Billboard’s Keith Caulfield the band are now the first Australians to ever debut on the chart at No. 1 and only the second to make it to the No. 1 spot this year, following singer Sia’s sixth album 1000 Forms Of Fear.

Just in case that was not enough for the boys - all of whom are 18 besides Ashton who is 20 - their Billboard placement also makes them the second ever group to make it to the top after iconic rockers AC/DC, who had the No. 1 spot in 2008 for their album Black Ice.


The Australian boy band - who became a hit even before their album thanks to opening for One Direction - sit atop of Frozen at the No. 2 spot, last week’s No. 1 album, ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic at third, Sam Smith who took out No. 4 and finally rapper Common rounding out the top five.

To celebrate their massive achievement the band, of course, headed to where it all started - social media.

Drummer Ashton tweeted: ‘To everyone that’s been a part of the journey so far we love you so much, you guys made the album number #1 in the US, we are speechless…’

While guitarist Michael showed his colourful Australian side: ‘Literally CANNOT believe we can say we had a number 1 album in the US… holy shitballs. WE FINALLY BEAT FROZEN.’

The band, currently supporting the One Direction Where We Are world tour that begins its North American leg Thursday night in Toronto, Canada.

5 Seconds Of Summer Debuts At No. 1 On Billboard 200

5 Seconds of Summer crashes in at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 as the Australian group’s self-titled full-length debut album arrives atop the list. The set sold 259,000 copies in the week ending July 27, according to Nielsen SoundScan, following the album’s release on July 22.

It’s the third-largest debut of 2014, and the fourth-largest sales week. (Coldplay’s Ghost Stories debuted with the year’s largest week, 383,000.)

5 Seconds of Summer’s opening also marks the biggest debut for an act’s first full-length album this year, and the largest for a group in nearly eight years. The last group to debut with a bigger bow was Daughtry, when its self-titled debut album started with 304,000 in the week ending Nov. 19, 2006.

5 Seconds of Summer’s new album follows the group’s four-song introductory EP, She Looks So Perfect, which debuted and peaked at No. 2 earlier this year (selling 143,000 in its first week).

The band’s homeland of Australia can also claim some amazing chart feats with the new album’s debut: 5 Seconds of Summer is the first Australian act to debut at No. 1 with its first full-length album. It also logs the largest SoundScan-era sales opening for an Australian act’s first album. (SoundScan began tracking data in 1991.)

5 Seconds of Summer is the second Australian act to top the Billboard 200 in 2014, following Sia, with 1000 Forms of Fear. The band is the first Australian group to hit No. 1 since AC/DC’s Black Ice spent two weeks atop the tally in 2008 (on the charts dated Nov. 8 and 15).

After 5 Seconds of Summer, the long-running Frozensoundtrack rises 5-2 on the Billboard 200, selling 37,000 (down 15 percent). The album is spending its 31st consecutive week in the top five.
