Ashton Irwin has admitted that he struggles with being away from home, his friends and his family.
The 5SOS hunk has spent most of the last few years touring the world with his bandmates and while his career has gone from strength to strength, his personal life hasn’t stayed so healthy.
In a chat about his new album Sounds Good Feels Good, Irwin teased a track titled Carry On, which he said was inspired by the loss of relationships with old friends and colleagues. The handsome bass player admitted that people at home in Australia forget about he and his bandmates and move on in life without them. He ends up feeling like an outsider when he returns Down Under and told the Australian Daily Telegraph:
“With relationships, it’s hard. People forget about you at home because you have been away for so long and it becomes this thing where you have just to keep going and not fall off the rails.”
“The last song on the album is ‘Carry On’, which is straight-up saying you know it is going to get better. Sticking it through is always going to be worth it, no matter what.”
Ashton also revealed that he has struggled with depression over the years and that touring has made the experience worse, as he works through issues of isolation when he’s on the road for months at a time.
Meanwhile, the band will appear on Celebrity Juice later this evening. Last week they showed up on Alan Carr’s Chatty Man and tonight they’ll be doing Keith Lemon on ITVBe. Irwin tweeted about their appearance this afternoon and said: “We are on @CelebJuice tonight talkin about my crocodile hunter friend … And the sounds live feels live lol x ”
