It’s may not be summer yet, but it’s already getting pretty hot for 5 Seconds of Summer fans as the band kicked off their Rock Out With Your Socks Out Tour on Monday (May 4) in Portugal. And the first show on the trek featured a very special treat for their fans.
The quintet debuted a new song called “Permanent Vacation” during the gig. The song is an uptempo jam that is perfect for summer with its bouncy, sing-along chorus.
You can see them perform it below.
Also hoping you like the new song, permanent vacation!

And, yes, some fans on social media noted the irony of a song called “Permanent Vacation” from a a band called 5 Seconds of Summer.
HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO HAVE A PERMANENT VACATION IF THERE’S ONLY 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER
