On 5SOS’s twitter, the announced:

Nialler said:

“We discovered 5SOS on YouTube last year and we all knew straight away they were very special. We’re so excited to have them on the road with us and we know our fans are going to LOVE what these lads do,”

Apparently there is a brewing bromance between both bands, that has seen them challenge each other to a football match ( 1D slaughtered them). 5SOS was also invited to come and hang out with the 1D boys in London, where they were also planning on recording their debut album.

After playing to just 20 people, within 15 months they will be hitting the arenas with the biggest boy band in the world…talk about worlds apart!

Now get learning your new favourite boy band’s names. We’ve got Callum, Luke, Michael and Ashton between the ages of 16 and 18. Very cute, very talented & of course Australian!

Michael said:

“None of this has sunk in for us; it’s surreal to think we will be on the same bill as a band who are on such a world-wide scale,”

“When the guys first started talking to us about it, we thought they were joking.”

“And now I look at my calendar in my iPhone and it goes from `doing our thing, doing our thing, four shows at the O2 arena in two days! It’s crazy.”

Check out a vid of 5SOS below and marvel at their wonderfulness. We can’t wait to see them on tour!

    I think that it’s really nice that 1D picked a band they believed in to give them a push in their career. I hope that 5SOS will enjoy the tour and that it will give them the boost they might have needed.

    I’m glad that 1D picked someone whom they found had potential and needed it to get heard rather than another band who’s already has a huge fandom preformed on tours etc. I hope 5SOS enjoys every minute of the tour.
