Bio

Jurassic 5's first release, the Jurassic 5 EP (1998), solidified them as a force to be reckoned with within the genre with hit tracks like "Concrete Schoolyard" and "Jayou." Two years later, J5 dropped Quality Control, which peaked at #43 on Billboard, achieved gold status, and introduced the group to the masses worldwide. Tracks like "Quality Control," "Jurass Finish First," and "Swing Set" became the group's signature sound. Power In Numbers spawned the smash hits "Day at the Races," featuring Big Daddy Kane, and "What's Golden," which led the band to their first late-night television performances on Conan O'Brien and David Letterman. In 2006, the group released Feedback (distributed and released worldwide via Interscope), which saw them hit #15 on the Billboard Top 200 during release week before amicably separating the following year. In 2013, the band reunited for Coachella, and then embarked on a yearlong string of sold-out concerts and festivals in Europe, Japan, Australia and New Zealand. In 2014, the band announced its 20th Anniversary "Word Of Mouth Reunion Tour," which appropriately ignited the next chapter of Jurassic 5's legacy. The group delivered an intimate set of classics from their storied catalog to faithful fans across the country. After a short break for solo projects, the group is back and in top form for 2015, having toured Australia, New Zealand and Japan, and are now retiring to the U.S. and Europe. In addition to the tour, J5's renaissance continues with the release of a full-length documentary feature later this year. For more information on J5, please visit Jurassic5.com.
