Luke Hemmings, Michael Clifford, Ashton Irwin and Calum Hood brought their music to the TODAY plaza, and fans showed up bright and early to see them warm up before the show officially got underway.

The band just released their second studio album, "Sounds Good Feels Good," last week, and with hits like "She's Kinda Hot" and "Hey Everybody," it's expected to shoot straight to the top of the Billboard 200 chart.
