5 Seconds of Summer has been teasing a huge announcement ever since they posted a cryptic, spacey image on Twitter — and now we finally know their big news! The band announced a special 5SOS convention called Derp Con 2014, taking place in Los Angeles from November 15-16.
While we still don't fully know what the event will entail, 5SOS says it's for "fight[ing] ninjas, Internet haters and join[ing] in some serious banding."

In their teaser for Derp Con, the boys dress up as superheroes, making us totally nostalgic for their appropriately-themed vid for "Don't Stop," and also making us really excited about the idea of 5SOS wearing costumes at their first headlining event.
But don't worry if you can't attend — the 5SOS boys promise that there will be other ways to get involved online. They're also hosting a worldwide competition for 5SOSers to get the chance to fly out and attend. That's so sweet!
