You’ve never heard anything like 5 Miles to Midnight (5M2M). That’s because they are the innovators of the genre “Island Rock” (iRock), a fusion of rock and the diverse sounds that make up Caribbean music. They are an award winning band from Trinidad and Tobago that has opened for major international acts such as Maroon 5, Evanescence, Life House, Far East Movement and Stephen Marley. They have also worked with top local entertainers including Machel Montano and Fay-Ann Lyons.
Since they broke on to the music scene in T&T in 2006, thier many achievements have been chronicled by the local media and we have also been featured on the international websites Afropunk.com and MTV Iggy. One of their coolest accomplishments to date was going up against other international acts and winning MTV Iggy’s Artist of The Week in March, 2013.
Their music is full of the energy and excitement of island life as seen through the eyes of six young, Trini guys. All of their songs come from a place of experience and capture our desire to push their boundaries by combining an international sound with a distinct Trini perspective.
They launched their first EP in August 2014 to great reviews. The 6 track EP titled “OMG It’s 5M2M’s 1st EP” has been generating exciting buzz and as they ride this momentum they invite you to be part of the iRock revolution.
