School’s Out with 5 Seconds of Summer

The Australian pop-punk band, 5 Seconds of Summer, recently started their “Rock Out With Your Socks Out” World Tour, along with a new single called “She’s Kinda Hot." Ashton Irwin (Drums) has explained to  Billboard  that this single is something “for us to give our fans a place to belong.” The song incorporates more guitars, playing more into their second album, which is still untitled. Ashton Irwin, along with Joel and Benji Madden of Good Charlotte, and the album’s executive producer John Feldmann, wrote “She’s Kinda Hot." BrownTrout is delighted to be the official calendar publisher for the band.


The band is comprised of Michael Clifford (Guitar), Luke Hemmings (Guitar), Calum Hood (Bass guitar), and Ashton Irwin. 5 Seconds of Summer’s “Rock Out With Your Socks Out” tour has already begun (first show was on July 17, in  Las Vegas' Mandalay Bay Events Center) and will wrap up on September 13, at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach, Florida.

5 Seconds of Summer appeals to teenagers, while incorporating the influences of Blink 182 and Green Day into their music. The group has been successful with their hit “Amnesia” which broke into the Top 20 of the Hot 100. According to  Billboard , their self-titled debut album rocketed to No. 1 last July with 259,000 copies sold in its first week.
