Roy Cathey announces The Fifth’s new album is finished and explains 12 year delay between records
The Fifth featuring Cold Sweat frontman Roy Cathey have apparently finished their new studio album. The group’s last album dates back to 2008’s Confessions of Man (which was re-released in 2009 via EMG/Universal Records). The Fifth released a remixed and remastered version of Confessions of Man via Vanity Music Group on November 13, 2020.
Cathey explained via a Facebook post today why it has taken so long for The Fifth to release a new album:
“I get asked often why it took so long for THE FIFTH to release another CD. Well, let’s just say it’s been a difficult road but here’s a break down of why…
2 Bass Players
2 Guitar Players
1 Toxic Relationship
1 Job Loss and I changed careers…TWICE
2 Record Labels
1 Distribution Deal
1 Worldwide Pandemic
Let’s just say things have been…..
But last night…we FINALLY FINISHED IT!!!”
