Five Iron Frenzy is back!

November 23, 2011

One of Christian alternative’s biggest names announced last night that they would be returning to music and producing an album during 2012 for release in 2013. Using funding raised through their Kickstarter page, Five Iron Frenzy plans on producing and promoting an album as well as potentially launching a tour in support of the album. Starting with a goal of $30,000, the band has already surpassed this number and raised over $80,000 not even 18 hours into their campaign.

Along with this fundraising campaign, the band has released a promotional single on their website that can also be heard here:

Five Iron Frenzy was a dominant name in the Christian ska scene for much of the late 1990s and early 2000s. During this time they cranked out five studio albums, two live albums and a handful of EPs, singles and compilations. Their last studio album, The End is Near was released in June 2003 with the double-album The End is Here (live + the studio album The End is Here) following in April 2004. In April 2010 they released a long anticipated DVD chronicling their careers with insights given from members of the band.

Five Iron Frenzy’s new album announcement came on the heels of a lengthy website countdown that had many fans anticipating great news, and great news they did receive. In addition to the album announcement, the band has been able to retain almost all of it line-up, though currently original bass player Keith Hoerig is being replaced by original guitar player Scott Kerr.
