Hailing from the depths of the durrty south, the mighty Family Force 5 has spent the last six years on a bombastic, arduous crusade, conquering clubs and arenas worldwide with an unrepentant swagger that has made the band the poster child for DIY business models in the music industry. Boasting a gritty concoction of mammoth beats, mouth-watering melodies, and explosive guitars, the dance-derived, fashion-forward five-some from Atlanta has crafted an impressive resume built on sweat and elbow grease.

After enduring a incessantly grueling tour schedule (which featured a mainstage slot on the UK’s fabled Sonisphere Festival), and a near-death illness for bassist Joshua Olds (Fatty), FF5 proudly returns for its fourth stint on the Warped Tour as one of the premiere independent bands in the world, scanning more than 150,000 units on its own record label since creating Transparent Media Group. The band has continued to drop jaws, landing opportunities never before available to an artist operating from within: placing songs in major films (Almost Alice, Warrior’s Way); winning countless awards by landslide amounts (Yahoo’s Who’s Next, MTVU’s Freshman Class, AP Reader’s Choice Awards, etc.); and scoring significant press in nearly every major outlet. Family Force 5 is working feverishly to complete its third full-length album, which is currently slated for release in the spring, and has been featured as one of Alternative Press’s most anticipated albums of 2011. Anyone familiar to their mythology knows, when Family Force 5 activates its collective booty-movin’ powers, there’s not a single rock club, dance floor or house party it cannot vanquish.
