Earlier this month we reported on a mysterious "New Broken Scene" site the 5 Seconds of Summer boys launched. Originally the web page hosted a distorted television screen; later it was revealed that 5SOS have planned a second fan convention/Derp Con event. Kids around the world can apply to win a trip to Atlanta, Georgia to meet the band on Halloween weekend.

It's not the only trick they have up their sleeve: For the past week and some change, 5SOS have been sharing longitude and latitude coordinates on social media. Their fans (the world's greatest detectives) uncovered it and visited sites in Sydney, Dublin and Amsterdam to find mysterious street art. All the images were true to 5 Seconds of Summer's aesthetic, but differed slightly, each a different character.

The band has finally explained that these images reflect individual songs on their upcoming sophomore release, Sounds Good Feels Good, and will continue to pop up in the furthest corners of the globe. They're urging kids to take photos with them.
