A one-man project based out of Dallas Texas, Five Times August is really another moniker for 23 year-old Brad Skistimas. Realizing from the get go that his last name wasn't any easy-to-remember title, Skistimas decided to promote his music with the alias based off his birthday, August 5th. In 2005 Five Times August released the album Fry Street. It was recorded in a house in Denton, TX. Fast forward two years later, and the album is now being re-packaged, re-titled, and re-released for national distribution across the country. The difference between this album and other CD's in the rack beside it? No record label of any kind has anything to do with it. Since Fry Street was originally released, eight songs from the album have been featured on television shows like MTV's Laguna Beach, the CW's One Tree Hill, and Oxygen Channel's Bad Girls Club. These placements helped catapult Five Times August's Fry Street sales to over 100,000 in online digital stores and over 11,000 physical copies of the CD.
