It’s been three years. Three years of silence, suspicion, and rumours. Where did they go? What were they doing? We knew 5SOS were on their well-deserved break after years of dominating the pop-sphere, but they couldn’t possibly be sitting around twiddling their thumbs.

Now, the Australian heroes of pop, punk and everything in between 5 Seconds Of Summer have returned, after teasing their comeback on socials over the last week, hinting at the release of #5SOS3, the band are back with an incredible new single, ‘Want You Back’.

The track sees the band make their foray into a funk-inspired-dance territory – think The 1975 meets The Neighborhood. Check out the incredible track below:

“Finally…  It’s been 3 years since our last album and we are so ready to share new music with the world,” 5SOS tells fans.

“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.”

They’ve also announced a run of intimate shows along the east coast. Check out the details below!
