‘C A L M’ BY 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER DEBUTS WITH OVER 133,000 UNITS SOLD

THE BANDS 4TH STUDIO ALBUM IS THE BEST-SELLING ALBUM OF THE WEEK MAKING IT #1 ON THE TOP ALBUM SALES CHART

ALBUM DEBUTS AT NO.1  IN THE UK AND AUSTRALIA

C A L M — the acclaimed new album from 5 Seconds of Summer (5SOS) — debuts at #2 on the Billboard 200 with over 133,000 equivalent album units sold, just 5000 short of the number 1 spot. This was in spite of a clerical shipping error that saw 11,000 CD sales appear in the chart one week early.  C A L M lands at #1 on the Top Album Sales chart selling over 113,000 in physical album sales. In addition, the bands fourth studio album took the #1 spot on the charts in Australia and in the UK, where C A L M  is the third biggest week one of the year.

Primarily made with producer Andrew Watt (Post Malone, Camila Cabello), C A L M is 5SOS’ first full-length for Interscope. The album’s impressive chart performance is fueled by the success of previously released singles like “Easier” (featured on Billboard’s list of the 100 Best Songs of 2019), “Teeth,” “No Shame,” “Old Me,” and  new  single “Wildflower.” Hailed by Billboard as the Australia-bred band’s “most musically complex project yet,” C A L M finds 5SOS pushing further into the edgier, industrial-inspired sound they first explored on their third album Youngblood (a chart-topping effort featuring such smash singles as the double-platinum title track and gold-certified “Want You Back”).

In creating the 12 dynamic tracks featured on C A L M, 5SOS reached a whole new level of honesty and emotional depth in their songwriting, ultimately lending a remarkable durability to their music. “These new songs feel like something we could keep playing for the next ten years, or even beyond that,” says bassist Calum Hood. “It feels like our first album — like we finally found what we’d been trying to achieve since the beginning of this band.”
