As they prepare for the hotly-anticipated release of their fifth studio album, 5 Seconds of Summer have announced a special global livestream.

Titled The Feeling of Falling Upwards, the exclusive event will be live-streamed from London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall on Thursday, September 22nd, the day before the band’s new album, 5SOS5, comes out.

During the livestream, the band will perform a set of reimagined versions of songs from throughout their career, as well as brand-new songs off their new album, accompanied by an orchestra and choir.

It’s going to be a special moment for 5SOS: it will be the first time the band have played at the world-famous Royal Albert Hall, while the venue is also just around the corner from where they busked when they first arrived in the UK almost a decade ago.

“To celebrate the release of our fifth studio album, 5SOS5 we really wanted to do something that could involve all our fans around the world,” the band shares. “That’s where the idea was born.

“This will be a show like nothing we have ever done before and what’s so special is we actually busked just outside the Royal Albert Hall back in 2013 to a few ‘day one’ fans! To now play a show there, at one of the most iconic venues in the world is a really unique moment and one we felt was the perfect way to commemorate the new album.

“We can’t wait to share this night with you and are so grateful to still be taking this journey with every single one of you.”

5SOS5 arrives on September 23rd via BMG and can be preordered here. The deluxe CD and digital versions of the album will have 19 tracks with cassette and vinyl formats also available.

Written by the band with Michael Clifford leading production, the album features previous singles “Take My Hand”, “Me Myself & I”, and “Complete Mess”.

Produced by Driift, The Feeling of Falling Upwards will be streamed worldwide, and then rebroadcast three times so global fans can watch at a more convenient time. Following that, the concert will then be available to watch On Demand for a further three days. Tickets for the livestream are on sale now here.
