It’s more than a year away, but Australian pop-rock foursome 5 Seconds of Summer has announced a show at the Palace of Auburn Hills for next summer.

The group will play the Palace Aug. 19, 2015, reps for 5SOS announced Wednesday. Tickets, $29.50-$69.50, go on sale at 10 a.m. Aug. 9; a pre-sale for Citi card holders begins at 10 a.m. Aug. 5.

The announcement comes on the same day the group’s self-titled debut album arrives at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top 200 albums chart. The set, buoyed by the smash single “She Looks So Perfect,” sold 259,000 copies its first week in stores.

If you just can’t wait that long to see the heartthrobs in action, they’re set to open up for One Direction during the group’s two concerts at Ford Field, Aug. 16 and 17.
