A few years ago, the name “5 Seconds of Summer” may have not meant anything to anyone. Now, in 2015, the name is associated with a band whose most recent album made its way up to the top spot on the Billboard 200 chart and will most likely have a sold out arena tour on their hands come 2016. Quite a feat for a group that formed in 2011.
Now, the group has decided to give their fans a behind-the-scenes look at just how they went from nobodies to selling out London’s Wembley Arena for several nights. On Monday (Nov. 2), the band posted a video on YouTube which turned out to be a trailer. The trailer is for their upcoming concert documentary DVD/Blu-ray, How Did We End Up Here?
For anyone familiar with the band’s discography, the name of the documentary is a direct reference to their song, “End Up Here” off of their self-titled debut. The documentary will reportedly follow the band’s rise to fame (“from their very first gig in Sydney in 2011”) and include their three consecutive sold out shows at Wembley Arena. In addition to that, there will be documentary segments, behind-the-scenes featurettes, bonus performances, as well as a ‘Live at Wembley Arena’ concert. With everything combined, it appears the DVD (or Blu-ray) will have a runtime of three hours.
Check out the trailer for How Did We End Up Here? below.
How Did We End Up Here? will reportedly be released on Nov. 23; an exact month after the release of their latest album, Sounds Good Feels Good. Pre-orders for the DVD/Blu-ray are currently available on the band’s website.
