Ashton Irwin and his 5 Seconds of Summer band-mates are just one date from the end of their “Rock Out With Your Socks Out” world tour. Irwin and his pals have won rave reviews for their performances and for their growing maturity as a band. It has been well documented that Irwin and his pals have been desperate to shake off their boy-band image, a hangover from their early tours supporting One Direction.
As their tour comes to a close, Irwin has revealed that he can’t wait to get back home to Australia, especially as Ashton and his pals will go straight into promoting their sophomore album, Sounds Good, Feels Good. Ashton says that he “can’t wait” to get back to Australia. Irwin also took to Twitter to explain just how much he is looking forward to the new album being released.
Ashton even went so far as to say that he feels “incomplete” and that he can’t wait for the albums release on October 23.
I feel incomplete without the new album being released, I, we, need you to hear it asap, the 23rd can't come quick enough…

Ashton says that he wants fans to hear the album as soon as possible, but he recently slammed those who leak tracks before they are due for release. Sugarscape recently reported that Ashton took to Twitter to reveal his frustration. Irwin said “leaking is bulls**t, I hate it. Artists work hard on songs and want them to be heard at the right time.”
“Although it’s amazing that you wanna listen so early! You feel me!? I’m sure ya do!”
Leaking is bullshit, I hate it. Artists work hard on songs and want them to be heard at the right time

With just one show left until the end of their tour Ashton has reached out to 5 Seconds of Summers fans seeking reassurance that they are doing a good job.
According to Unreality TV Ashton asked fans who have seen the bands shows for feedback on how much they enjoyed the experience.
Ashton said “I just want to know if you guys have had a good time if you’ve come to a show. Where did you come to a show? I really just want to know if we’re doing a good job.”
“Been on tour for nearly six months and it’s been amazing. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts if you’ve been to a show.”
