5 Seconds of Summer: Hey, Let's Make a Band!
This book is pretty much our official story so far. It really does only seem like last week we played our first gig in at the Annandale hotel in Sydney. Since then we've been given the opportunity to turn into the people and musicians we wanted to be. The people who gave us the opportunity were the fans. So this book is like a thank you. We want everyone to know the story of how four western Sydney teenagers picked up their instruments and dreamt of being one of the biggest bands in the world. There's also some embarrassing photos of us dicking around and some facts that some of us didn't even know. So we hope you enjoy it! Love cal, luke, ash and mike X.
