“were performing at the @MTV VMAs in August! to be asked & given this opportunity’s incredible, we cant be more excited about it :D #5SOSVMAs,” the band tweeted.
It’s truly been a massive past few weeks for the band: Not only did they shoot straight to #1 with the international release of their self-titled debut in 71 countries (!) at the start of July, but their latest stateside track “Amnesia” also soared to the top of the US iTunes Songs Chart when it was released at the end of June. Oh, yeah — and they’re going out on tour to open for a little act called…One Direction. Don’t stop, boys!
