About The Bangkok Five

Gritty alternative rockers the Bangkok Five were birthed out of Hollywood, CA, during the first half of the 2000s. Their respect for D.I.Y. ethics had the guys -- vocalist Frost, bassist Coatez, drummer Blanco, and guitarists Holcolm KS and Sweeney -- self-releasing their EP, 10 the Hard Way, in spring 2005 before supporting it on the road with a tour self-booked by way of the MySpace website. Sharing stages with various bands like Peaches, Hot Hot Heat, the Mooney Suzuki, and the Bronx, among others, the guys also performed at 2006's South by Southwest festival in Austin. Their lively full-length Who's Gonna Take Us Alive? arrived via Universal in late March of the same year. Their sophomore release, We Love What Kills Us, followed in spring of 2008. ~ Corey Apar
