5 Seconds of Summer first hit the music scene with a little bit of help from One Direction. Being on tour with them helped them gain tons of exposure and even amped up their fan base. Now, years later, these two boy bands are still close. In fact, 5SOS just went on the record admitting that they learned a lot from their former tour mates.
"Their story is very different to ours," they said in a new interview. "Their type of music is very different to ours as well. It's a different type of journey, but to see how they've done it and the way they treat their touring crew is something we've learned from."
"We just want everyone that works for us to be happy, and we wouldn't have known how to do that unless we'd toured with One Direction," they admitted.
Well said, boys. We understand that 5SOS and 1D are two very different bands and it must be hard getting compared to them all the time, but we like the way Ashton Irwin, Luke Hemmings, Calum Hood, and Michael Clifford handle it. They know just how important 1D was to their careers taking off and we love to see them recognizing that and expressing their gratitude!
