5 Seconds Of Summer break their two year silence with “Want You Back”

Pop-Punk’s favorite boy-band has finally broken a wave of radio silence that lasted nearly two years! 5 Seconds Of Summer announced a new single called “Want You Back” early last week and the time has finally come for the world to hear what they’ve been cooking up — and it’s a bit different than what we were expecting. Where 2015’s Sounds Good, Feels Good saw the boys putting out some of the brightest and catchiest pop-punk of the year, “Want You Back” hints at maturation found in their time away, as the track ditches the playful energy of their past material and opts for sultry guitars and soulful vocals.

Reflecting on their brief hiatus, 5 Seconds Of Summer said: “After spending the last 5 years on the road since the age of 16, it was important we took time to reflect as individuals and now we’re coming back stronger and more unified than ever. These songs mean the world to us and we have held nothing back in writing and recording this album. We’ve been rehearsing a lot of the new songs live and can’t wait to get back out on tour to connect with our incredible fans.”
