Family Force 5 is fast becoming one of the great stories of artist development on the scene today. The band’ssophomore release Dance Or Die has already sold over 50k units to date, proving to be unstoppable the band gears up to hit the road on the AP Tour 09 presented by Rockstar Energy Drink but just before they will hit the studio to record brand new tracks to be included on the Dance or Die Remix CD due out May 19.

The remix record is going to be off the chain!! Our friends from The Secret Handshake, 3oh!3, and Cobra Starship will be mixing up FF5 like peeps have never heard before!!! Get ready for your booty to have a second dose of dance plus some new FF5 trax!!!”
Says FF5’s Soloman Olds aka Soul Glow Activator

In a unique deal with EMI North America Family Force 5 have taken bold steps to remain independent with the release or Dance or Die and now with the release of Dance or Die Remix by forming The Transparent Media Group a label created and run by the band, manager Chris Woltman and producer Joe Baldridge.

“We feel fortunate to be one of the leaders of a business model where we own all aspects of the brand. The last year has been filled with many new challenges and our team has risen up for, and met, each one. The hard work on and off the road, the always over the top live show, the connection to the fans and great music will always provide the platform for success. We can’t wait to move into the next phase of “Dance or Die” with the remix record and a tour that is going to define the spring of 2009!”
– comments manager and partner on Transparent Media Group Chris Woltman

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, Winter Wonder Slam and countless club dates. As we kick off 2009 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 a ruthless rush of wonderfully irresistible madness when FF5 hits the stage.


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 YouNeed To Know’ issue. Joining Family Force 5 on the AP stage will be 303H!3, The Maine, Hit The Lights and A Rocket to The Moon.

I like the sensationalist text in there: Family Force 5 is fast becoming one of the great stories of artist development on the scene today. The band’ssophomore release Dance Or Die has already sold over 50k units to date, proving to be unstoppable

So they are unstoppable.. after selling 50K? I guess..
