5 Seconds of Summer have released the music video for their brand new single ‘Teeth’.
The track comes after the band has been teasing fans on social media over the past week. With behind the scenes photos of the music video to a clip of the song alongside the single’s artwork, we couldn’t wait to sink our ‘Teeth’ into the track.
Speaking to Alternative Press about the song, Luke Hemmings has said, “‘Teeth’ came about after a month or two long blur of writing and pushing ourselves to go a step further than ‘Youngblood’. It was a tumultuous time in my life and the lyrics in the song definitely reflect that. It speaks lyrically about a trying time in my current relationship. Musically it’s another step forward from ‘Easier’ and really embraces industrial sounds and rhythms.”
Continuing, he said, “Collaborating with Ryan Tedder was incredible as was Andrew Watt, Ali Tamposi & Lou Bell. ‘Teeth’ captures the soul of 5 Seconds of Summer and I truly believe it is a unique song to us as a band and doesn’t sound like anything out at the moment. It’s my favorite song we’ve released ever and I can’t wait for people to hear it.”
The single is also a part of the soundtrack for the upcoming third season of Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why, which premieres on the 23rd August. Other artists featuring on the soundtrack include Yungblud and Charli XCX.

‘Teeth’ follows on from 5SOS’ Nine Inch Nails inspired track ‘Easier‘, which released in May earlier this year. Since it’s release, the band have dropped various alternate versions of the song, including one live from The Vault and one with co-writer Charlie Puth.
