5 Seconds Of Summer Admit They’re Struggling To Make Time For Second Album

5 Seconds Of Summer have confirmed that they have already begun work on their second album just moths after topping charts on both sides of the Atlantic with their self-titled debut. However, album number two is proving to be more of a struggle as the band admit they just cannot find the time as they continue with One Direction’s Where We Are world tour. But progress is progress and the Aussie ‘rockers’ have begun the early stages of writing their second LP.

Luke, Michael, Calum and Ashton are currently squeezing in the time to write some bonafied hits worthy to follow their string of hit singles including Amnesia and UK number one She Looks So Pressure. So no pressure then guys! But understandably, being in the hottest band in the world right now, can be rather time consuming.

Chatting to MTV US, drummer Ashton says: “’We’ve been trying to [write new tracks], ‘trying’ is the key word. We’ve been trying to fit it in. We’ve been so busy lately, but we are definitely feeling creative again and excited to write a second album.”

Thankfully, the group have teased some “secrets” are on the way. Perhaps the obligatory deluxe version of 5 Seconds of Summer is on the way with some shiny new singles included? Guitarist Michael added: “We don’t know whether we are supposed to be keeping secrets or not.”


This year has just been a string of success stories for the band, who in less than 12 months on our iPods have scooped up an MTV Video Music Award and will go head to head with best pals One Direction at November’s MTV European Music Awards in the Best Pop category.
