5 Seconds of Summer’s 5SOS3 tour to promote the band's upcoming album Youngblood recently brought the Aussie pop-rockers to some of their most ardent fans in Europe. They made stops in Stockholm, Antwerp, Cologne and Amsterdam. Now, the group has shared some intimate, firsthand behind-the-scenes footage of their European run of dates on Twitter.

The video begins with the foursome being asked what they want from 2018. Bassist/vocalist Calum Hood hopes it grants the band “creative freedom.” Drummer Ashton Irwin hopes for the group’s audiences “to understand where [they] are as people.” Guitarist Michael Clifford waxes on the idea of 5SOS being seen as a “new band.” And lead vocalist/rhythm guitarist states that he wants others to “feel the music like [he] feels it.”

From there, it’s all a mosaic of screaming audiences, airport scenes, and triumphant sold-out performances, with Clifford entering a 5SOS concert line at one point to interview their fans face-to-face, and ask what tunes everyone’s looking forward to from the concert.

It all adds up to a tantalizing look at a still-young band nonetheless in full confidence, connecting with their European fans in a unique, heart-to-heart way. You can watch the behind-the-scenes vid below:
