Australian pop-punk boyband and frenzy-causing heartthrobs 5 Seconds of Summer are already gearing up for their next release.

The band, whose No. 1 self-titled debut album came out earlier this summer, are plotting its followup. In between releasing their debut and touring with One Direction, the group have started mentally planning to release their second album by next May, when the band embarks on their world headlining tour.

“We definitely would like to have another album out there some time next year,” drummer Ashton Irwin told Billboard. “We’ll start working on it and see what happens.”

The band understandably hasn’t had time to start recording it while on tour. “We’ve been on tour [with One Direction] for a few months, so we’ve just been playing lots of tour and doing lots of promo,” he added. “We haven’t had much time to get back in the studio at the moment. I think when you’re on the road you’ve got to just live out what’s happening, then when you get back to the studio you’ve got a lot to write about. I don’t want to write the same album again, so I go out there and see what life has for me, and then I’ll go back and I’ll write about it.
