|FAMILY FORCE 5 PRIMED FOR 2009 INVASION
12 December 2008
Family Force 5's sophomore release Dance Or Die, out now on Transparent Media Group/EMI and Tooth & Nail Records, forged out of the gate armed with rippling rhythms, assaulting electronics and raucous rock 'n roll. Now, with almost 50k units sold to date, Family Force 5 soars into 2009 for complete attack as the band gears up to hit the road on the AP Tour 09 presented by Rockstar Energy Drink.
Since the beginning of summer 2008 the band and their latest release Dance or Die have been garnering rave reviews and playing sold out shows on the Vans Warped Tour 08, Dance Rawr Dance Tour and the Winter Wonder Slam. As the year comes to an end the band refuses to slow down, announcing their run on the AP Tour 09 presented by Rockstar Energy Drink. As always, expect to see and hear an unrelenting rush of delightfully uncontainable madness when Family Force 5 hits the stage.
"'Dance or Die' is an unconventional arsenal of ultimate dance floor anthems," declares Family Force keyboardist Nathan Currin (Nadaddy). "We're at war. Dancing is our weapon, and our party is ready to pull the trigger."
Alternative Press will be taking the nation by storm for the third consecutive year with the AP Tour 09 presented by Rockstar Energy Drink. The tour headliners are bands hand picked from the magazine's highly anticipated '100 Bands You Need To Know' issue. Not all the AP Tour 09 bands have been announced yet, but so far sharing the stage with Family Force 5 will be A Rocket to the Moon and Hit the Lights. The tour will be making 45 stops nationwide from March 20 through May 9 with a ticket presale January 12-16 and national on sale January 17.
Family Force 5 is: Solomon "Soul Glow Activator" Olds - vocals, guitar, Jacob "Crouton" Olds - drums, vocals, Joshua "Fatty" Olds - bass, vocals, Derek "Chap Stique" Mount - guitar, Nathan "Nadaddy" Currin - keyboards, turntables.
