Listen: 5 Seconds of Summer give ‘Youngblood’ acoustic treatment

Now that the release of their third studio album is only a handful of days away, the guys from 5 Seconds of Summer are putting their press appearances into overdrive. On Tuesday (June 12), the Australian band headed over to BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge to perform two songs; an acoustic version of their album’s title track and current single “Youngblood” and a cover of Alice Merton’s breakout single “No Roots.”

Earlier this month, 5 Seconds of Summer surprised fans by announcing they had decided to move up the release date of their forthcoming album by a week. Taking to Twitter, frontman Luke Hemmings posted “Youngblood is now out June 15. This is not a drill.”

Originally, the group’s first new album in nearly three years was set to be released on June 22, but due to popular demand, the group decided to unleash the album a week ahead of time.

For those who have yet to order the impending release, pre-orders are still available on all digital music platforms.

In support of Youngblood‘s release, the band will hit the North American road this fall. The North American leg of the “Meet You There” tour will begin on Aug. 27 at RBC Echo Beach in Toronto and conclude about a month and a half later on Oct. 12 at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. Tickets for the upcoming tour are currently available on the band’s website while the complete list of tour dates can be found here.
