FILL IN THE BLANK
So much of the joy and fulfillment that we get as a band is evoked through our fans personal experience with our music and the impact it’s made in their lives. Although the album is titled 'Fill In The Blank', we ask you to take part and title this record with what it means to you.
You all made this happen and we couldn’t be more appreciative for you still being here after all this time. We have gotten so many messages over the years about what our songs mean to you and they’re always a little different for each person.
we are truly proud of this record and we are so excited that it's out now.
we recorded most of this album on a beautiful piece of property in Missouri. check out some of our favorite behind the scenes shots from our album recording trip.
Fivefold was founded in 2007 by Derrick Huskey, Matt Benne, Ryan Cheney, and Jesse Berlin – a group of teenagers who sought to change the world with their music. In 2010 the self-titled EP was released, making a splash that would eventually become a tide. The band began to land some great show opportunities through hours of rehearsing, writing, and scheming.
In 2011, the band began recording their first full-length album, “The Story,” in honor of their late mentor/manager Jim Story. When nearing completion of the record, in January of 2012, Jesse Berlin suddenly passed away in his sleep due to unknown causes. In honor of Jesse and Jim, the band chose to move forward with the release of the album - with one change. The song “Lost Within” was the final song written with Jesse (but was not previously recorded). The addition of this song forever changed the fate of the band.
In 2013, Fivefold went to the studio with Matt Amelung to record the EP “Hold On.” After a year of shows in support of the EP, the band went through another change and brought Amelung into the fold as a second guitarist. In 2015 Fivefold released their second full-length album, “Open Letter.”
After 2 years of supporting the record, the band took a hiatus to focus on other endeavors. Fivefold decided to start back up in 2019 but sadly faced another incredible loss. Matt Amelung tragically passed away from brain cancer. Since then, Fivefold has come together to honor those they lost and to honor the love and passion for music that has been shared for over a decade.
Over the years, Fivefold has shared the bill with many incredible artists, such as Story Of The Year, Switchfoot, Sick Puppies, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, and Buckcherry, and accumulated millions of streams across multiple platforms worldwide. Lost Within currently ranks #1 for the band, with over 13 million on Spotify alone. With an updated lineup, Fivefold is now Ryan Cheney, Derrick Huskey & Matt Benne.
