3 min read

(US) 5 Seconds of Summer – who took home the New Artist of the Year award at last night’s American Music Awards – will release LIVESOS on December 15 on Capitol Records. The pre-order is underway now for the 15-track collection, which is a memento of the band’s year on the road. Recorded live at numerous shows the Australian quartet has played in the States during 2014, LIVESOS features the band performing all their fans’ favorite songs, including the hits “She Looks So Perfect,” “Amnesia” and “Good Girls” plus a cover of Green Day’s “American Idiot.”

Fans will also find both a live version and a studio mix of 5 Seconds of Summer’s brand new single, “What I Like About You.” The band performed the song, which was originally recorded in 1979 by Detroit power pop band The Romantics, at the American Music Awards last night. The lyric video for “What I Like About You” premiered yesterday. The single impacts Top 40 radio on December 1.

Fans who purchase LIVESOS on iTunes will also receive an exclusive bonus track, “Kiss Me Kiss Me.” The deluxe edition, which will be available only at Target, will include the bonus track “Don’t Stop.” The band will kick off its first-ever North American headline run – the “Rock Out With Your Socks Out Tour” – on July 17, 2015 at the Mandalay Bay Event Center in Las Vegas, NV.

5 Seconds of Summer played to 25,000 fans during its recent sold-out, two-night stand at the Forum in Los Angeles. The weekend performances dovetailed with Derp Con, a 5 Seconds of Summer fan convention attended by 300 contest winners who were flown in from a total of 35 countries. The festivities were held at Derp Rock City – an epic virtual world created on the Paramount Studios New York backlot. In addition to the many attractions designed especially for the event, attendees were treated to individual meet-and-greets with the band members, an intimate acoustic set and VIP access to one of The Forum shows.
