The Click Five

The Click Five is a band from Boston, Massachusetts, United States.

History

Four of the five original members attended the Berklee College of Music and participated in many other rock bands before coming together to form The Click, which later became The Click Five. The band lived together in Boston in a rented house on Imrie Road, which gave name to their debut album's title. The group played their first venue at the KISS 108 FM Hatchshell Concert on the Charles River in July 2004. After that they received the attention of some of the major labels and flown to NY and LA by Epic Records Scout Dave Rocco. They were signed to Lava Records that autumn by Andy Karp. The band began recording their first album at QDivision Studios in Somerville with Mike Denneen, veteran producer for artists such as Aimee Mann, Fountains of Wayne, Letters to Cleo, and many other notable bands.

Following the completion of the recording, the band began touring, starting at smaller venues around the Boston area to larger ones across North America. The music video for the first single, "Just the Girl", a homage to "A Hard Day's Night" by The Beatles, was released in the summer and autumn of 2005 to MTV, VH1, and other outlets. Their debut album, Greetings from Imrie House, was released 16 August 2005. After a rigorous nine month US Tour, the Click Five toured Asia in 2006, visiting Singapore, Malaysia, and Japan, and later toured the British Isles that autumn with McFly.

In late 2006, lead singer Eric Dill left the band. In early 2007, the band brought on new lead singer Kyle Patrick, another Berklee student. The band recorded their second album, Modern Minds and Pastimes, in the early months of 2007 and released it on 26 June 2007. The release was followed by a small United States tour. The band returned to Asia in autumn 2007 with a significantly larger itinerary. They were given the title "Band of the Year" by 987FM (Singapore) in the Top 100 Countdown of 2007.

On August 2, 2008, The Click Five won the Knockout Award at MTV Asia Awards 2008, in Genting Highlands, Malaysia. On August 29, 2008, lead singer Kyle Patrick announced on his Myspace page that he is going on a solo acoustic tour with his friend Jesse Ruben in some cities in the US.

They are currently writing new material which they plan to have something new out by early 2009.
