On Feb. 16, along with the teasers, Ashton shared a heartfelt message to fans about his “feelings of elation” for the future. “Finally, I missed you! We missed you! It’s time for re-ignition! It’s time to spin around this earth a couple of times in the upcoming months, playing our new music, old music, and everything in between… to you all,” Ashton writes.

At the end of last year, guitarist Michael Clifford said that fans wouldn't have to wait too much longer for that new album.
“Our fans were pretty pissed off that we didn't give them an update about releasing an album this year because towards the start of the year, we were pretty positive we'd have an album out by the end of ,” Clifford said.
“With timing, it just didn't end up working, but we're definitely gonna have the album out next year.”
He explains that the band needed this time to “perfect the new song and direction” they’re taking, wanting to make sure it’s a final product that they’ll be happy with.
“I think when all the new stuff comes out, it's like a departure of our old sound but it still keeps elements of all of the things we liked about it. It was just time for us to change,” Clifford tells Billboard. “We're at a point now where we're almost ready to put out our first single.”
5 Seconds Of Summer released their last album, Sounds Good Feels Good in 2015, and it looks like 2018 is set to be 5SOS' year.
