5 Seconds of Summer Premiere of “YOUNGBLOOD” Video

Open up your YouTube app because the heartthrob boy band 5 Seconds of Summer just released their video for new song Youngblood.

The track has a relentless thumping rhythm where the members are shown to switch from a delicate verses to a booming chorus that will have you singing at the top of your lungs. Their new song is a mixture between pop and EDM–getting the best of both worlds.

Their new album is out now on Capitol Records. The video, directed by Frank Borin, was filmed in one of the most beautiful places in the world, Tokyo. Check out this masterpiece of a video right here.

Not only do the band members find Japan aesthetically pleasing, but it has a much deeper meaning to them spiritually:

“There are many wonderful, interesting, and captivating subcultures all over the world. In every corner of this earth there are groups of inventors, visionaries, thrill seekers, and boundary pushers…The Japanese Rockabilly culture is that of a renaissance and a beautiful flare of passion for everything old and new and that makes this particular subculture so interesting and amazing to us. We hope you enjoy this video. Thank you for allowing us to be explorative with the concepts we choose to visually express our songs to you. Thank you to everyone that brought this video to life,” says the band’s vocal artist and drummer, Ashton Irwin.

Along with Irwin, the video’s director, Borin, shares:

“About 10 years ago I was shooting in Tokyo and was walking through Yoyogi park when I came upon this huge group of Japanese rockabilly guys and girls. Every Sunday, they were dressed to the nines in full rockabilly gear, doing their hair out in public, taping up their decades old boots, and dancing the day away to 50’s music blasting on their boombox. Flash forward to 10 years later, 5SOS was releasing Youngblood and the band and I were collaborating on another video together. The band were really into the ideas of highlighting the rockabilly crew and we hung out with them for a couple days. They took us around Tokyo and gave us a peak into their world which really lent itself to the spirit of the song and ultimately became the video.”

You can order tickets for 5SOS’s Meet You There Tour here as they are on sale now at LiveNation.com. It will be a 25-city North American headline outing that launches August 27 in Toronto, ON. The full itinerary can be found here.

Already, Youngblood is recorded to have debuted as No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. What’s cooler is that 5SOS is now the only band in chart history to see its first three-length studio albums enter the chart at No. 1.
