Musical style

Family Force 5 uses elements of alternative rock,[25][26] club-oriented crunk,[citation needed] crunk-rock,[27] electropunk[citation needed] and electronica[citation needed] and with positive, party lyrics in their music.
When asked about their "Love Addict" video and its relation to their Christian image, Solomon Olds stated "They want Sandi Patty all over again. They want Amy Grant. And most times, its people that don't understand new art, new videos... We want to make music that is for God, but at the same time, we want to make music that people enjoy and that they're not turned off by."

Family Force 5 (often abbreviated FF5, formerly known as The Phamily and The Brothers) is a Christian crunk rock[1] band from Atlanta, Georgia.[1] They consist of Solomon "Soul Glow Activatur" Olds, Jacob "Crouton" Olds, Joshua "Fatty" Olds, Nathan "Nadaddy" Currin, and Derek "Chap Stique" Mount. They have released three studio albums, Business Up Front/Party in the Back, Dance or Die, and Family Force 5 Christmas Pageant, as well an extension album, Business Up Front/Party in the Back Diamond Edition and a remix album, Dance or Die with a Vengeance.

Early history and The Family (1993-2003)
Family Force 5 was formed in Atlanta, Georgia. Three of the five members, Solomon (AKA: "Soul Glow Activatur"), Joshua (AKA: Fatty), and Jacob Olds (AKA: Crouton), are sons of Jerome Olds, a Christian artist popular in the late 1980s. Prior to the formation of Family Force 5, the brothers were members of a "boy band" known as The Brothers, releasing Fact and Reality (1994) and RPM (1995). Both albums were released on Star Song Records, and produced by their father.[2][3]
Between The Brothers and Family Force 5, the brothers had a band called Ground Noise, which they classified as "a really bad version of Third Day."[4] Next, the three brothers added Derek Mount (AKA: Chap Stique) and Nathan "Nate" Currin (AKA: Nadaddy). Before the band chose the name Family Force 5, they used the name "The Phamily" but were forced to change it later due to copyright issues with Prince's band, The Family.
A decade later, the band signed with Maverick Records for distribution to the mainstream market before signing to Gotee Records for the Christian market. Under the name "The Phamily", the band sought a dual recording deal to better distribute their music to both the mainstream and Christian markets.[3] According to Solomon Olds, "To me, and pretty much anybody that's under my age, most Christian music is a turnoff. I don't want to be affiliated with that. I want to be affiliated with something that is great music. I feel that Maverick and Gotee together can pull that off."[2]
[edit]Family Force 5 and mainstream success (2004-2007)
On March 21, 2006 the band released their first full-length album Business Up Front/Party in the Back which was an instant hit in both the Christian and mainstream markets spawning several hit singles such as "Love Addict" and "Earthquake". Both of these songs, like many others on the album, are heavily focused around the guitar. Their debut album has been both disparaged and praised by Christian and non-Christian critics respectively for not containing overtly Christian content in any of its tracks. In March 2007, their debut album was re-released as Business Up Front/Party in the Back: Diamond Edition, which contains three previously unreleased songs.[5] During this time, Family Force 5 contributed the song "Mind's Eye" for the compilation album Freaked! A Gotee Tribute to dc Talk's "Jesus Freak". For Christmas, Family Force 5 released a few Christmas-themed audio blogs. They also recorded "Grandma", a cover of "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer". Also a new unreleased song entitled "Whatcha Gonna Do with It" was added to the Hip Hope Hits: 2008 record.[6] Another previously unreleased song, "Master of Disguise", was posted on YouTube. However due to mixed fan reaction to the song it was not slated for release at the time.
[edit]Dance or Die (2008)
In June 2008, the band released an EP entitled Dance or Die - EP to debut three songs from their upcoming album Dance or Die. On August 19, 2008, the full-length album was released taking on a more club oriented, electronic dance sound than Business Up Front/Party in the Back with less guitar. The full-length album, Dance or Die, received a favorable review in World Magazine.[7]
Blake Soloman of AbsolutePunk.net had the following to say about the album; "Even though Family Force 5 may be the musical equivalent of mixing Mentos and Coke-–lots of build up for something that only ever happens one way-–I find myself oddly pleased with Dance or Die."
Dance or Die sold 17,000 copies in its first week and debuted at 30 on the Billboard 200. By the end of January, the album had sold over 50,000 units and during early 2009 the band embarked on the AP tour from March to May promoting the album and headlining concerts throughout the U.S.[8] In December 2008, the band won the Best Christian Rock Artist, Best Crunk Rock/Rap Artist and Best Rock Album for Dance or Die at the Top In Rock Awards.[9]

In mid-November 2009, the band hit the road on the Christmas Pageant Tour. On this tour was House of Heroes, Remedy Drive, and All Left Out. On the tour they performed their versions of Christmas classics as well as their very own originals. On November 30th it was announced by lead singer Soul Glow Activatur's Twitter that Joshua (Fatty) had been admitted to the ICU of a local hospital and that a kidney specialist had been called in after his condition deteriorated.[13] Later it was confirmed that he was suffering from kidney failure and that he was undergoing dialysis treatment. The band at first vowed to continue the current tour they were on, The Christmas Pageant Tour, so as not to disappoint fans, however, as Joshua's condition worsened, the band canceled a few shows, but then made a return for the rest of the tour. Joshua is now out of the hospital and back playing shows.[14][15]
