Now this is how you kick off summer! 5 Seconds of Summer opened 2019 iHeartRadio Wango Tango presented by JUVÉDERM Collection of Dermal Fillers in Los Angeles on Saturday, June 1, with hit new single “Easier.”
The Australian foursome — Luke Hemmings, Michael Clifford, Calum Hood and Ashton Irwin —brought the rock and also performed tracks “She Looks So Perfect,” Chainsmokers’ collab “Who Do you Love,” “Jet Black Heart, “Want You Back” and forever favorite “Youngblood.”
“This is a beautiful moment for us,” frontman Luke gushed to the crowd amid rocking out.
“We all challenge ourselves to bring something fresh to the table,” Ashton previously told host Ryan Seacrest during an interview on On Air With Ryan Seacrest. “Especially on this fourth album, we all had to agree to continue pursuing something that was fantastic and new for this band and that’s why the sound has changed. It’s a great evolution from Youngblood.”
Their latest drop, “Easier,” is just a taste of what’s to come.
“We kind of discovered we wanted to go for more of an electronic sound with industrial influence and [‘Easier’] was written with Charlie Puth, Ryan Tedder and Ali Tamposi which was awesome — new collaborations for us,” the band explained at the time, confirming that yes, “an abundance of new music [is] coming.”
WE. CAN’T. WAIT!
