Fayetteville, NC: Home to Ft. Bragg, strip clubs, tattoo shops, pawn shops, and THE FIFTH. Formed in 2001 by former Cold Sweat (MCA) vocalist Roy Cathey, THE FIFTH have built a strong and feverish following by touring the East coast relentlessly and by giving the people exactly what they want - a Hell of a good time, every time.

With music featured in television ads for The Voice - Season 4 NBC), Gray's Anatomy (ABC), Nikita - Season 3 CW), and Dodge Ram (FOX), a 2-week Japanese tour, a 7-week Top 10 single ("The Gift") on WVRK-FM Rock 103 Columbus, GA, and a Monster Energy sponsorship, THE FIFTH caught the attention of a Nashville, TN-based management company. With new management on board, the band quickly secured a deal with EMG/Universal. The label released THE FIFTH's "Confession Of Man" in July of 2009.

THE FIFTH have shared bills with Nickelback, Hinder, Staind, Breaking Benjamin, Three Days Grace, Puddle of Mudd, Sevendust, Cold, NonPoint, Saliva, Hoobastank, Filter, Drowning Pool, Crossfade, CC DeVille, Finger Eleven, Cavo, Black Stone Cherry, Rev Theory, Queensryche, Saving Abel, Jackyl, Ratt, Quiet Riot, Great White, Warrant, Blue Oyster Cult, and more. Product endorsements include Peavey, Spector, Basson, Lava Cable, Knucklehead Strings, Saperstein Guitar Co., and Coffin Cases.
