5 Seconds of Summer: "I don't think people understand how much pressure One Direction are under"
5 Seconds of Summer have praised One Direction and the way they handle their success.
The Australians are due to support the 'Kiss You' lads once again this year on their Where We Are tour in Europe and North America.
Speaking to USA Today, drummer Ashton Irwin said that the One Direction members are under a great deal of pressure - something that people often forget about.
He said: "The boys work so hard, and I don't think people on the outside really understand how much pressure they're under. Just the way they handle day-to-day life being One Direction, it's a cool thing to watch."
In the same interview, Irwin said that he doesn't think 5 Seconds of Summer should fall under the 'boyband' tag:
"We didn't really realise we were a boy band until people started calling us a boy band. I understand and we don't care what people call us, as long as we're making the music we love."
