Five Eight

AthFest Artist Spotlight: Five Eight

Seasoned vets Five Eight are back in Athens for AthFest 2015, this time playing at The Foundry. They call themselves “The Greatest Band That Never Was”, but over two decades of well-loved releases and sold-out tour dates prove their efforts haven’t been for naught. Since 1992, Five Eight has been recording their emo-tinged post-punk across seven albums and performed with the likes of REM and Cheap Trick. They’re one of those acts to remind you that there’s more to a band than record sales, and several blogs have agreed. Their 1994 release, Weirdo, established the group as a no-holds-barred, guitar driven rock, while 2000’s The Good Nurse garnered wide praise for its gripping and haunting storytelling.

In 2012, NPR’s All Songs Considered called them one of “Top Five Bands That Should Be Way Bigger Than They Are” for their “melodic, crushing rock”. Check out a throwback performance of “Weirdo” from 1993:

Five Eight will be back home for AthFest 2015, performing on Friday, June 26th at The Foundry!
