ANNOUNCED: Final Tickets & Support Act For 5 Seconds Of Summer
The final tickets have been released for the previously sold-out 5 Seconds of Summer shows, ahead of the Aussie superstars’ triumphant return home to play their first-ever headline Australian and New Zealand arena shows, touring in support of their self-titled #1 smash hit, debut album. Tickets are available NOW!
And 5 Seconds Of Summer are excited to announce State Champs, a five-piece pop-punk band hailing from Albany, New York, will play support on all shows.
State Champs began in 2010, basing their quick-paced and emotive sound on the influence of masters of the genre like Fall Out Boy, the Story So Far, and New Found Glory. Based around singer Derek Discanio's wailing vocals, the band was filled out by guitarists Tyler Szalkowski and Tony Diaz and bassist Ryan Graham; they were eventually joined by drummer, Evan Ambrosio.
After a demo circulated, the band released the Overslept EP in late 2012 and followed with full-length The Finer Things in 2013 which debuted at #2 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart, featuring single ‘Elevated’.
They recently released an acoustic EP titled The Acoustic Things in October 2014 and are currently touring through the US.
