Five, featuring Ritchie Neville, Sean Conlon and Scott Robinson were originally formed in 1997 by the same team behind the Spice Girls. They sold over 20 million records, amassing numerous music awards and partying hard, gaining a reputation for being the bad boys of pop and paving the way for the new wave of pin up boy bands with attitude. They reformed for the ITV series The Big Reunion in 2013, which generated headline news and much showbiz excitement! The band sold out their own headline tour of the UK in 2014.
Ritchie, Scott and Sean, who have just finished the sold out Boys Are Back Tour across the UK, decided that they would only do new music if they had the time to do it properly. Lockdown provided the opportunity to do exactly that and they wrote and produced their first album in 20 years ‘Time’, due for release in early January, which Sean says “Really helped turn a negative into a positive”.
Double -A side single, Shangri-La and Making Me Fall has delighted fans over the summer and the band continued their comeback with the release of another double-A side, Reset and Warm Light at the end of September.
“The reception to the new material has been fantastic, we wanted to bridge the gap between the old and new” says Scott “Reset is a mid-tempo ballad which not only shows our softer side, it went down a storm with fans on the tour & Warm Light is classic Five with a modern twist”
Taken from the album of the same name, their new single Time will be released on 26th November, available for pre order from 22nd October. “We have lots of great songs, and we feel incredibly proud we are able to give the fans what they have waited so patiently for two decades” says Ritchie.
The album Time will be available for pre order on 3rd December and released late January 2022. Five will be taking part in the 90’s Baby arena tour next year as well as their own stand-alone theatre tour. For more information please visit: linktr.ee/FiveOfficial
