Youngblood is the third studio album by Australian pop rock band 5 Seconds of Summer. The album was initially set to release on 22 June 2018 by Capitol Records, but it was later brought forward to 15 June.

Background Edit

  • Youngblood debuted at number one in Australia, becoming 5 Seconds of Summer's third number-one album their home country; it debuted atop the albums chart at the same week that the title track was number one for a fifth week on the singles chart.
  • The album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart, debuting with 142,000 album-equivalent units, including 117,000 in pure album sales. This made them the first Australian act with three number-one albums in the US. It also led to 5 Seconds of Summer being the first band (not vocal group) to have their first three full-length studio albums debut atop the Billboard 200.
  • Youngblood debuted in the top three of eight other countries. Overall, it charted in more than 20 countries, reaching the top 10 in 20 countries.

PromotionEdit

Ahead of the album's release, the band embarked on the worldwide promotional 5SOS III Tour, which took place at 26 intimate venues. The tour began on 20 March 2018 and ended on 6 June 2018.

Apple Music released a documentary centered on the band, featuring interviews about the making of their new album. Apple Music also organized a one-night show at New York to showcase the short film where the band also performed for their fans.[3]
