If you’re interested in FIF, here’s the most recent interview with the band’s lead singer, Reese Roper.

If you like Christian music at all you owe it to yourself to hear this band. I regret only hearing about them long after their break up.

I call Five Iron’s last album, the 2-cd set The End is Here, the best Christian release of all time. I have no reservations about calling it just simply the best release of all time, either. It’s just that good.

  1. YES! a FIF blog. I am proud of you Matty. I have to agree that the End is Here is indeed the best. Very close second is (in my opinion) All the Hype Money Can Buy and FIF 2 Electric Boogaloo.

    I’ve watched some of the DVD and what I have seen is good. I just need to sit down through the 3 1/2 hr documentary first haha… seriously.. its about that long!

    There is concert footage from Proof the Kids Are Revolting and from their last show in Denver. Quite good, especially Every New Day and World Without End. Music videos are decent, they made them with very little money but their worth a laugh to see Reese’s antics.

    I am seeking Reese’s outside work, like his poetry: http://www.awkwardsaw.com/tml/poet-roper.html

    He’s also done some work with the screamo band Showbread. He’s been in more than Matthias Replaces Judas. He’s been in Stabbing Art to Death and The Beginning. Both good songs, and Roper lends some spectacular vocals to them.

    By the way, did you order the T shirt edition or the poster/pin edition?

    One of us has gotta do an extensive DVD review for this.

    1. You already have the DVD? You’re holding out on me Fretz! I didn’t know there was a t-shirt or poster/pin edition?? Also I ordered off of amazon because the one their website links to wanted more for shipping than the dvd costs. We should both write some blogs on the dvd after watching it.
