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


We have a lot of cool events and shows in the works for bands on our label as well as other bands from around the Upstate area; not to mention some great national acts in the near future. We have also teamed up with some local promoters to help bring the music community together and showcase new bands. Jon Hutt (Jon the Hutt) has been doing great work for the music community by bringing bands and people together. Jon is behind the Thoughts in Reverse show advertised on the site. Steve Strader of Northern Tier Booking has also contributed a lot of positive energy by setting up local shows and will be another asset to our team. Last but not least, tomorrow we will be making an announcement regarding a new band that has impressed and inspired us. They are hard workers, true musicians, and have a unique original sound. We will spill the beans on Friday night right before Local Licks on 94.1 Rock WOTT.


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. 

 We are also excited to announce the final stages of recording for Blaming Hollywood! We will be recording here at Fifth Dimension and mixing and mastering with Jim Fogarty at Zing studios! More news to come soon from the other bands, and stay tuned for upcoming announcement on a brand new solo artist from VA.
 
Remember that we are now also sponsoring Local Licks on 94.1 Rock Wott! Send us your demo to get played Friday nights at 11 p.m. on 94.1 FM. Last but not least, we would like to give a shout out to some awesome dudes in CHASING SOKARIS! Their new EP Branches is brutal! Make sure to check them out at www.facebook.com/chasingsokaris
 
Until next time, Upstate -- Keep rockin'!





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!
