Family Force 5 announce the 2011 Christmas Pageant Tour with Hawk Nelson and special guest Manafest

Seattle, Wa – On the heels of their newest release, III, FAMILY FORCE 5 announce their third annual “The Christmas Pageant” tour experience beginning December 6 featuring Hawk Nelson and special guest Manafest. Tickets are available for advance purchase as well as exclusive VIP $50 tickets here..

More than half of the VIP tickets have already been sold offering fans a special time with FAMILY FORCE 5 and Hawk Nelson. VIP ticket holders will get to celebrate Christmas with the bands before anyone else with early entry into the show, hear acoustic sets from both bands, special Q&A session filled with Christmas treats, photo opportunities and a Christmas gift from FAMILY FORCE 5.

Touring the universe and electrifying crowds at big festivals like Sonisphere and the Vans Warped Tour, the band is back with their “Christmas Pageant” tour. This holiday extravaganza started in 2009 with the release of their album The Christmas Pageant. As true to the FAMLY FORCE 5 live show, “The Christmas Pageant” promises an evening of classic holiday tunes in their incendiary dance-rock style as well as possible snowstorms, over-sized presents and more fun-filled surprises.

FAMILY FORCE 5’s new album III marks a dynamic shift and takes the group back to their rock roots, resurrecting the heavy guitars and bombastic beats of their debut. Unadulterated energy ties the band’s unstoppable genre-hopping as FAMILY FORCE 5–brothers Jacob, Josh, and Solomon Olds, and Nathan Currin and Derek Mount–explore low-slung bass booms and harmonica howls.

FAMILY FORCE 5 have earned a loyal following culled from their endless touring and chart-topping albums. The group’s previous album, 08’s Dance or Die, debuted on the Billboard Top 200 chart at #30 and the Modern Rock chart at #8 with 13,000 copies sold in the first week. An Alternative Press magazine cover story followed and the group co-headlined the completely sold-out “Alternative Press Fall Tour” with 3OH!3 and The Maine. FAMILY FORCE 5 is currently headlining their “It’s All Gold” tour through November.
