7/11/14 - Fifth Dimension Records is proud to be a part of the ever-expanding music community here in Watertown and the entire Upstate NY region. There is so much talent and a wide variety of musicians and bands in the area. It is possible to find music anywhere you go, whether you are into old school jam bands like Universal Transit, Wagner's Agenda, or The Way Down Wailers or if you're looking for some great original modern rock and roll with bands like Caustic Method, Lake Effect Mud, and Autumn's Last Fall. Heavy hitters Maps of War, Bullet Buffet, Landslide Victory, Promising Coraline, and Anatta are a few of the great acts in the metal and hardcore scenes. Out Chasing Lions, Wakko Sick, and Out 2 Tax are some up and coming rap and hip hop artists in the area. We are branching out to help promote local artists, bands and all other talented artists this area has to offer
6/21/14 - Today we announce our signing with The Gaia Theory. We discovered them at the Fun on the Farm event a few weeks ago at Chris Davenport's in Stones Mills, NY, where they played along with now-labelmates The Reality Tree. The Gaia Theory mix melodic death metal with just the right amount of groove! We look forward to bringing you a full length album along with a tour to kick things off later in the year.
5/1/14 - The Tesseract Altered State North America Tour with Cloudkicker and Intonaut was outstanding! We caught the show last Sunday at The Chance in Poughkeepsie, NY. Everyone stood and watched as the bands wielded their picks and sticks to perfection. Opening local artist Joe Gareri put on one hell of a show along with his fellow band mates, showcasing great licks, fun rhythms and key changes which set the tone for the touring acts. We also got to meet Tesseract's new singer Ashe O'Hara and made some new connections in the Poughkeepsie and NYC areas. Today we are in NJ getting a little r & r and working on some planning for the next few months. We will be back in Poughkeepsie on the 20th to see Animals as Leaders hosting the Joy of Motion Tour also at The Chance. What a great way to kick off the summer! We'll be back in NY this weekend, See you then!
