The Fifth Fire began its' journey in July of 2010. Two days after the country celebrated its' liberation, a group of musicians assembled that would go on to become The Fifth Fire, though only one of those individuals remain today. Mark Ryan, has endured countless, and frankly grueling revolving lineup changes, to keep his vision of alternative musics answer to pop medias variety generation. Equal parts cultural and social disenfranchisement, and uncompromising ambition, The Fifth Fires' music is accomodatingly familiar, yet undeniably unique. The groups debut release, the often misinterpreted "Generation I", showed pop sensibilities, but was obtuse and unusual enough, to retain indie status.. After the april release, the groups lineup was filled out by Ryan Murphy, first as bassist, then later lead guitar, the former would eventually be filled by Aaron Bradley. Murphy and Bradley, join Ryan, in what has been the most enduring lineup to date. TV and multiple radio performances have occured in recent months, as well as the completion of the bands first tour, canvassing midwest and southern states. They are currently planning what would likely be considered their most ambitous outing to date, a west coast/southwest tour that will cover eight states in total. Presuming a philosophical credo, perhaps it's not all about getting "somwhere" in life, but being so bold as to try and get everywhere.
