ABOUT HEIST AT FIVE
Heist At Five was born with the purpose of taking a shared love of hard rock music, and blending it with a contemporary, electronic edge. The vision is to create fresh, exciting music, pushing the musical boundaries of what is possible when bringing two genres together.
Despite the band's roots being firmly planted in rock music, they do not want to just be classified as a rock band; rather, challenging the expectations associated with rock music, showing what is possible with a considered, modern approach to songwriting.
In the spring of 2016, they performed at the O2 Forum, Kentish Town, and the O2 Academy, Islington in London, showcasing two of their first songs, receiving great feedback. Throughout the rest of the year, the focus fell onto more songwriting, which eventually led to the creation of their debut EP, 'The Blacklist'. On 31st May 2017, ‘The Blacklist’ was released as a 5 track EP on all major online stores and streaming services, which included their lead single, 'Intelligence'. To celebrate, the band performed a successful self-organised EP launch show at Notting Hill Arts Club in London, which coincided with the release date.
The second release from the band is now in the works, and with a new approach towards production and their musical direction, the focus of 2018 is going to be concentrated on creating new material.
