Los Angeles: 5 Seconds of Summer's guitarist Michael Clifford has revealed that he had lost some hearing at the age of 18 because of the noise made by fans at their shows.
Clifford is not the only Austalian band's member whose hearing got damaged because of the screaming fans, reportedly.
"I went to a hearing check-up, and I've actually lost high-pitched... Noises in my right ear. I think they've lowered or something," Clifford said.
"That's the effect (fans' screaming) has," Clifford's bandmate, drummer Ashton Irwin, added. 5 Seconds of Summer is currently serving as a supporting act at the shows on One Direction's tour which is scheduled to be wrapped up earlier next month.
The boys plan to embark on their own headlining tour in 2015.
