5 Seconds of Summer announced late Friday (Nov. 21) that the pop band will release a new live album titled LIVESOS.
“Playing live has been something we have been the most passionate about from the beginning,” reads a statement on 5 Seconds of Summer’s website.
“All we want is for our fans to come to the shows, rock out and have one of the best times they’ve ever experienced. Also when a room is full of you guys from all different walks of life, you can let it go when you come to the shows and be free to be yourself.”

LIVESOS is expected to be released on Dec. 15 through Capitol Records, according to iTunes. The 15-song set will feature such songs as “Amnesia,” “She Looks So Perfect” and “Everything I Didn’t Say,” which were recorded during various live shows around the globe.
The live release follows the Australian group’s self-titled debut album, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in July. 5SOS has spent 2013 and 2014 touring with One Direction and will headline arenas around the world in 2015.
In September, 5 Seconds of Summer told Billboard that the act was in the process of working on its second album. “We’ve started writing for the next album,” they said at the iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas.
