Fly to the Sun
Fortune 500 was born in the great northwest (Washington State) in 2005. Members of Fortune 500 come from some the seminal bands in the area, (Killision, The Swerving Birds, Hindu Grass, Bluegreen, Pavlov Jones) and have shared the stage with such acts as Presidents Of The United States, 54-40, Everclear, The Boss Martians, Cowboy Junkies, The Posies, Hoobastank, Harvey Danger, Tommy Tutone, and EVEN Quiet Riot! They began playing shows almost immediately, and found that people had a fondness for the music. More and more people began asking for more and more Fortune 500, so the decision was eventually made to go into the studio to begin working on an album. The result is 'Fly To The Sun', their first full-length album. 'You are going to play this CD a lot if you like catchy riffs, pop music hooks, quirky thoughtful sensitive lyrics, Beatles harmonies, or smokin hot guitar leads. You will only like this if you are into bands like Flop, Hukser Du, Seven Seconds, The Clash, Chuck Berry, Fleetwood Mac, Green Day, Elvis Costello, the Posies or the movie Raising Arizona. And if you don't like any of that stuff, you are obviously no mental giant and probably can't read this anyway.' - Shane Gildnes- MOPE Records.
