Biography

5 Watt a rock band from Viroqua, WI has been said to update the sounds of notable post punk bands like, Joy Division, and the Cure while integrating the more modern sounds of bands such as Smashing Pumpkins, Bush and Tool. Their unique sound shimmers with hints of 90's alternative rock , with a dose of 80’s pop sensibilities. In today’s modern rock genre they have created a style all their own yet never leaving a song inaccessible. Their depth, ambience, and wide-ranging sound often align them with European bands rather than the current American pop punk sound. Gaining momentum locally through engaging live shows, the five band members (Jonah, David, Arthur, Bjorn, and Doug) will be touring in support of their debut album ‘Dangerous Charm' Winter/Summer 2008-2009. The band is constantly writing new material and enjoys bringing new songs to the stage on a regular basis. realeditorbest profile tools
