5 Seconds Of Summer released their last full-length in 2018 with Youngblood. After dropping several singles over the course of the past couple of years, the Aussies have dropped a brand new track “No Shame” and announced the date for their fourth studio album C A L M.
At the end of last year, the band teases fans by launching an album preorder for a release that wasn’t revealed yet.
The band took to Twitter to remind fans of the new preorder package, which came with early access to the No Shame 2020 tour dates. The new album confirmation also comes after a studio update at the beginning of 2019.

In the album’s trailer, snippets of each track can be heard with the band taking on a new musical direction.
“For a band to make it to four albums is no small feat in itself,” lead vocalist Luke Hemmings says in a statement. “But to be reinventing and constantly pushing our songwriting and to come out with music that we’ve never been more proud of makes me so happy to be in 5 Seconds of Summer.”
“C A L M speaks on a journey through a young man’s life, for better or for worse. We are all human and all make mistakes, sometimes we hurt the ones we love and inevitably, ourselves in the process. C A L M leaves the band in a much happier, unified and calm state of mind to continue making albums for years to come.”
