5SOS announce massive Aussie tour

Australia's edgier answer to One Direction, 5 Seconds of Summer, have confirmed they'll return home this year with a massive string of shows around the nation.

The band, who were home to perform in Sunday's massive Fire Fight Australia fundraiser, announced on Monday that they'd round out a massive year on their No Shame arena tour in Australia.

The tour coincides with the upcoming release of their fourth studio album CALM, which hits shelves on March 27, and will be the band's first tour in Australia since 2018.

The band - made up of members Calum Hood, Ashton Irwin, Luke Hemmings and Michael Clifford - will kick off the Australian leg of their tour on the Gold Coast in November, before winding things up at the Sydney Opera House.

The boys, who are based in LA, told Sunrise on Monday morning that they hope the Australian shows will be "the best yet".

"When we come back here it's more for the soul," Calum said, adding that America was "more for the creativity side of the brain".

"So it's always going to be a big part of our jobs that lie within Los Angeles, but when it's back here you feel more at home."

The band first rose to global fame in 2014 with their self-titled debut album, following it up with 2015's Sounds Feel's Good and 2018's Youngblood, both of which debuted at number one on the ARIA album chart.
