On October 14th, Augiedisc Records and Bloodshot Records will release The Flat Five’s long-awaited debut album It’s a World of Love and Hope — 12 irresistibly catchy, instantly-hummable, and sweetly twisted pop songs written by long-time Chicago fixture Chris Ligon — and interpreted with great love by five simpatico nerds with massive musical chops — five friends foamy all over with song fever — who are just in it for the joy. It is a world of love and hope. We insist!

The Flat Five is a Chicago-based pop vocal super-group — Kelly HoganNora O’ConnorScott LigonCasey McDonoughAlex Hall — made of five in-demand musicians who individually spend much of their time touring and recording with bands like Neko CaseNRBQThe DecemberistsAndrew BirdMavis StaplesIron and WineJakob DylanRobbie FulksAlejandro EscovedoThe New Pornographers, and many other heavy hitters.  These five folks stay very, very busy. Yet for the past ten years, these shameless harmony junkies came together, like a moth to a porchlight, to make music as The Flat Five. Purely for the love of singing together. For the mother-effing fun of it.
