The album was released in October 2015 and the band members were awarded a plaque to commemorate their latest achievement.
The band uploaded a photo of themselves holding their plaques on their official Instragram page with a caption saying, “We were given these plaques yesterday for Sounds Good Feels Good selling 1 million copies worldwide. incredible way to start the UK tour; thank you all.”
Their tour will then take them on to perform in cities such as Glasgow, London and Leeds.
The band is due to play at London’s O2 on 7 8 April this week.
The band said in a statement, “We had such a blast on the ‘Rock Out With Your Socks Out Tour.’ It was a big moment for us – our first ever headline arena tour, it is what you dream of.”
“We are going to try and make this tour even better than the last and the best live show possible for you guys. This is such a huge thing for us to be able to come and see you all. We can’t wait to play you the new album and loads more, we love you guys and hope you are as excited as we are,” the band continued in their statement.
Ashton Irwin, Luke Hemmings, Michael Clifford and Calum Hood were recently in the news after they lost the iHeart Radio award for Best Fan Army.
It was Justin Bieber who won the Best Fan Army prize.
Fans of One Direction, 5 Seconds of Summer and Fifth Harmony have expressed their confusion at the news, saying the online vote showed that Bieber wasn’t even in the top three just minutes before it closed.
