5 Seconds of Summer are pretty much taking over the world – they absolutely annihilated the charts this year with their first singles and album – and they have BIG plans for 2015!

The boys are currently on tour with One Direction, before heading back to the UK for their iTunes Festival performance AND they are planning to release their second album early next year before they start their headline tour in May. Phew!

Ashton Irwin told Billboard, “We've got a lot of time coming up, actually, to write and record again,”

"We definitely would like to have another album out there some time next year. We'll start working on it and see what happens."

Ashton also revealed that the band had worked on “upwards of 100 songs" for the first album, but they haven’t had much chance to get in the studio between touring commitments.

Ashton said, "We've been on tour [with One Direction] for a few months, so we've just been playing lots of tour and doing lots of promo."

“We haven't had much time to get back in the studio at the moment. I think when you're on the road you've got to just live out what's happening, then when you get back to the studio you've got a lot to write about.”

“I don't want to write the same album again, so I go out there and see what life has for me, and then I'll go back and I'll write about it. We've got a lot of time coming up, actually, to write and record again, so I'm really looking forward to that 'cause I'm feeling like I miss that at the moment."

And 5SOS won’t be short of tour experiences as they prepare to head out on their own headline arena tour in May.

Ashton said, “It's incredible to even have the opportunity to create an amphitheater/arena show. I'm really looking forward to that. I really want people just to leave the show going, 'Wow, I can't wait to see a 5 Seconds of Summer show again.' I'd like to be known for our live shows, so I really want to put on an experience for our fans."

Hands up who can’t wait to see them live?!
