With their self-titled album debuting at #1 on iTunes, the Australian pop punk quartet set their sights on Toronto, fresh off their recent North American tour, where tickets sold out in less than five minutes. The band kicked it up a notch since they first started making waves with their YouTube covers in 2011. Since then, they have rose to international fame, touring with One Direction, and releasing their addictive, smash single “She Looks So Perfect”. This spring, the band made their U.S. TV debut performing “She Looks So Perfect” on the 2014 BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS. Earlier this year, the band was nominated for “International Video of the Year – Group” at the 2014 MUCH MUSIC VIDEO AWARDS and took home top honours for “Best International Newcomer” at the 2014 Kerrang! Awards. On the heels of debuting #1 on the Canadian SoundScan album charts this week, 5 Seconds of Summer are currently on a global stadium tour with One Direction, kicking off the North American leg on August 1 in Toronto.
