Family Force 5 Release New Album This Summer, Tour US

Published: 2008-03-28
Georgia rockers Family Force 5 are back at it again ready for a new tour and new album. The band will be embarking on a 14 city US tour called Skeletour and the Rock 'n' Roll Champions of the Universe Tour. The Maine and Ivoryline will be joining these Yahoo! Music "Who's Next" winners as they kick off the tour on April 3 in Dallas, Texas and finish in Portland, OR on April 20.

Guitarist Chap Stique says of the upcoming tour, "We used to always say, 'if the Transformers became a rock band, it would be Family Force 5.' But the second record turns it up to 11. Now, we're more like the Delorean from Back to the Future...but the Delorean became a Transformer that slays dragons, travels through time, and kills monsters with mullets!"

For those not in the tour zone, you can anticipate the release of their new album in June 2008, which follows their successful debut Business Up Front, Party In The Back.
