5 Seconds of Summer earn MTV VMA nomination
18 Jul 2014
5 Seconds of Summer are among the Artist To Watch nominees at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards.
The pop-punk band faces competition from Brit Sam Smith for his video Stay With Me, School Boy Q’s Man of the Year video, Boom Clap by Charli XCX and Fifth Harmony’s Miss Movin On. The MTV Video Music Awards will take place on Sunday 24 August.
Last year, 5 Seconds of Summer bagged the MTV Breakthrough award while they narrowly missed out on UK no.1 to Ed Sheeran following the release of their debut album last month.
5 Seconds of Summer recently shared the stage with One Direction where they opened for the band during their Where We Are Stadium tour.
The boys recently announced a headline arena tour of the UK and Ireland that will take place in 2015. The tour will run from 30 May 2015 to 13 June 2015 with tickets now on sale.
