On November 28th, “The Family Force 5’s Christmas Pageant” first annual tour will kick off in Grand Rapids, MI.  The Atlanta-based band’s combination of dance and rock, funky rhythms and percolating club grooves will get anyone up out of their seats. “The Family Force 5’s Christmas Pageant” tour promises to be no different, putting the Family Force 5 touch on classic holiday tunes and age-old favorites. The inspiration for the tour comes from The Family Force 5 Christmas Pageant album, set to release on October 6.

In accordance with the holiday spirit and in an effort to give back to the communities that “The Family Force 5’s Christmas Pageant” will be visiting, Family Force 5 has asked that their fans bring canned goods for donation to local food banks.

Family Force 5 is currently ruling the road with their very own “DANCE RAWR DANCE 3” tour, powering the rise of their most recent album, DANCE OR DIE. The tour has already proven a huge success, but the band, feeling no need to slow down, wants to bring their notoriously crazy style on the road with them throughout the holidays as well. “We encourage fans to dress up in costumes, whether it be a killer whale, a big chicken or a Skeletor outfit,” says guitarist Chap Stique. Or a Santa Clause suit!

Family Force 5’s recent notable partnership with Target and Skelanimals has also been drawing national attention lately – The Target EP exclusive “Keep The Party Alive” features six songs including the new title track and enhanced DVD video. “Keep The Party Alive” debuted at #12 on the Billboard Top Dance/Electronic Album Chart this week!

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."
