According to E! News, while the photos are enough to get die-hard fans excited about, wait till you see the content inside!
Apparently, some industry might quick to call the singers a boy band, drummer Ashton Irwin – the band's oldest and perhaps the most responsible member says he has much bigger goals for the group.
"Seventy-five percent of our lives is proving we're a real band," he explained. "We're getting good at it now. We don't want to just be, like, for girls. We want to be for everyone. That's the great mission that we have."
Irwin added, "I'm already seeing a few male fans start to pop up, and that's cool. If the Beatles and the Rolling Stones and all those guys can do it, we can do it, too." According to Rolling Stone, the band recently announced an arena tour that starts in February and lasts at least until the end of the year. After spending pretty much every day of the past four years together, tensions are evident.
"Some people snap a little and some people say things they wouldn't normally say," Hood, the bassist says. Clifford who suffered from mild depression also commented, "It's all about finding things to make you happy. And for me, this week, it has been partying."
Meanwhile, aside from all the work to be done when it comes to their music, performances and all. The boys also dishes out with the mag one of their hottest confessions when they are on tour, especially about the women they met. Hood admits he "got a bit reckless" when he first started receiving attention from girls. Hemmings added, "When you put four young dudes on a tour bus, playing theaters, then arenas, you're going to have sex with a lot of girls, I guess. We had a good time."
Moreover, E! News reports some were a bit upset by the direction the article took, #WeAreProudOfYou5SOS began to trend on Twitter Friday evening. Clifford even took a shot at the publication after quotes spread online.
"I hate when people include everything in an article EXCEPT the reason we're a band; the fans," he shared online. Hemmings added (then deleted), "How about we talk about the music and the fans…the only reason a band is a band."
