The rapidly growing, Australian pop rock band, 5 Seconds Of Summer is widely inspired by bands such as All Time Low and Mayday Parade. The band is featured on the September edition of Alternative Press and they apparently asked a handful of bands their thoughts on them.
Alex Gaskarth was one of the ones asked, and conversations via Twitter between members of All Time Low and members of 5SOS show that they clearly have a mutual enjoyment of one another's music. It appears as though AP asked Alex how he'd feel about opening up for a band that is several years younger than every member of his own band. While some might have an issue supporting a band of teenagers and younger adults, Alex appears to have no problem with this. (And you shouldn't. Age does not determine your success and you should never feel threatened by the success of someone else. Even if they're five or more years younger than you. It doesn't change your success, nor should it make you feel degraded. Success comes for different people, at different times in their lives, and in differing ways.)
Not long after the picture shown above was posted, Alex tweeted saying, "Don't get all riled up, folks; It's not a tour announcement. Just saying that we're never above opening up for a new, successful band..." Which just goes right along with what he said to Alternative Press.
Just one hour later, however, he sparked the interest of fans by saying, "Speaking of tour, we have some amazing things in the works for 2015. I think you're all gonna be stoked."
This leads many to believe that there will definitely be a tour with 5SOS and All Time Low in 2015. However, try not to get your hopes up too high, as nothing has been guaranteed yet. This is nothing more than an assumption for right now.
Would this be something you'd be interested in? Would you go see a tour with 5 Seconds Of Summer and All Time Low? Leave your thoughts!
