The crowds do seem pretty deafening at 5 Seconds Of Summer shows. In a recent interview with Billboard, when asked about screaming teen fans, singer/guitarist Michael Clifford said he’s already lost some hearing in his right hear.
“I went to a hearing check-up,” the 18-year-old told Billboard, “and I’ve actually lost high-pitched… noises in my right ear. I think they’ve lowered or something.”
Drummer Ashton Irwin added, “That’s the effect it has.” Watch the band’s interview below, and let us know your thoughts.
5SOS recently covered Blink-182's “I Miss You” and Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” at a concert in Detroit. The band released their debut self-titled album earlier this month on Capitol Records. The group also recently announced a massive 2015 tour and a fan convention, Derp Con.
