POZ Road Blog: I Call Fives (Update I)

I Call Fives are out on a great fall tour with With The Punches, and we’re stoked to have the band back for a new Road Blog. Check out their first update below!

From Drew Conte: 

Friday November 2nd: Mesa, AZ
I went to sleep at 10am as we left Las Vegas….and then I woke up in Arizona at a Jack in the Box. Honestly, it was the worst I’ve felt in all of 2012. Being hung over is never a particularly fun thing, but being hung over in a moving van far away from your bed, shower, and fridge with cold drinks is exponentially worse. We got to Mesa and loaded in and met up with Stickup Kid, they will be joining us for the next 3 shows. They were super nice guys and had a killer set, we played after them and had a great time. We’ve been to Arizona many times over the past 5 years, normally the shows are pretty terrible. This show was definitely unexpected and we appreciate all the Mesa-ians that came out and making this time around different. After the show, we headed to Los Angeles area to our friend Marks house to start our next few shows in California.

Thursday November 1st: Cedar City, UT
We left the hotel and headed to Ogden City..playing 2 shows in Utah is kind of odd. We got to the venue pretty early before load in, the venue was in a shopping center so we walked around a super market (which sold horse saddles and guns) and got snacks at the dollar tree. We threw around the vortex (you remember the football with the whistle) in the parking lot and waited to load in. We ended up playing and both our sets and With the Punches’ were a pretty surprisingly awesome time. We had to drive to Mesa, AZ that night which is about 9 hours so I looked up the directions and saw 2 routes: driving through Vegas or driving through the Grand Canyon. Driving through the Grand Canyon in the middle of the night sounded pretty fucking pointless, so we went to Vegas. I drove and we got there at about midnight, where we met up with The Wonder Years who were already in town because their tour with Yellowcard started the next day. We all got pretty drunk, I had roughly 10 White Russians, and the roulette table absolutely kicked my ass. We got a hotel room that night in Hooters and only one of us actually went to sleep in it. We are idiots. If anyone was wondering, my roulette numbers are 3, 5, 6, 13, 15, 21, 33, and 36.

POZ Playlist: I Call Fives, Stickup Kid, Real Friends

by Zack Zarrillo - Oct 18, 2012

I Call Fives are kicking off a tour this weekend with With The Punches. Stickup Kid and Real Friends will also be joining the bands on different points of the tour, so we’re stoked to have three of them for a new PropertyOfZack Playlist. Check out the Playlists below while listening to the songs on Spotify and reading everyone’s thoughts!


Taking Back Sunday - Who Are You Anyway?
Initially I was a little bit turned off when I heard the way the vocals went on the new album..after a few listens, I really enjoy their s/t album and in particular love this song.
We Are The Union - Live Like Mitch *Song is not on Spotify
We toured with these guys, The Story So Far, and Handguns last summer. It was one of my most fun tours these past 6 years. WATU just put out a new record and I enjoy this song and you should check out the album.
Hostage Calm - On Both Eyes
Hostage Calm - Woke Up Next To A Body
I first met Hostage Calm sometime in 2010 when we played with them at the Blast o Mat in Denver. I had heard about them a little before that through my friends hardcore band Petition and assumed these guys were a similar style. Once they started their set, I soon realized they had totally changed their style up. 2 years later, they have really come in to their own and perfected their craft. This album is excellent.
Heart to Heart - The Turn
I’ve known these guys for a long time and their growth as a band since first meeting them has really been something. Their record is powerful and has songs with a meaning, which in 2012 isn’t actually as common as you’d think. I am a big fan of their new record, check it out.
Half Hearted Hero - Cobblestones
I remember driving over the bridge in Virginia Beach listening to this song in the fall of 2009, something about driving the van over that bridge at the start of a tour was just therapeutic or something, I always think back to it when I hear this song. “I came here to find a purpose but lately I just feel worthless”
Diamond Youth - Fix of Mine
My friend Alex showed me these guys over the summer, I was instantly into these guys. They have an Alkaline Trio feeling to them in the perfect way, plus my pal Paul Leavitt did the album. You need to check this band out.
Death Cab For Cutie - Title and Registration
This is just one of those songs that I’ve found myself listening to fairly regularly for a long, long time. It’s weird thinking that Transatlanticism came out nearly 10 years ago. There’s something deeper in this song to me, I’ve always felt it was so relatable,
Crime in Stereo - New Harlem Shuffle
They’re back and this is one of the first songs I remember hearing from them.
The Composure - Stay The Course *Song is not on Spotify
There are a few times I’ve seen a band that was so exceptional live, a band that is clearly so set apart from everyone else…We played with Four Year Strong in a hall next to a post office back in 2007 and I remember from the second they started playing, the band had just what I was talking about. I haven’t really seen many others do this to me in recent memory, except The Composure. They are some of the tightest musicians I’ve seen and their songs are great. As good as their recordings are, I don’t even think it does them the full justice they deserve..go catch them at a show and watch them live. 


Lifetime – Somewhere In The Swamps Of Jersey
Been listening to a lot of Lifetime b-sides lately. This is one of the coolest Lifetime tunes, the lack of length keeps me going back to listen over and over again.
Paramore – That’s What You Get

The verses in this song is what pulled me in. The rythyms that Paramore has are so awesome and complex. They’re all doing different things musically and it all pulls together so well. Awesome song.
Title Fight – In Between
Floral Green is a really cool album. They weren’t afraid to experiment on these recordings. I love the chorus of this tune and I love the main guitar part. Title Fight does what they want to do and the fact that people love their mentality is great.
Incubus - Dig
Incubus has always been a band I enjoy, and lately I’ve found myself listening to them more and more. I was bummed that I missed them last time they came around with Linkin Park. Would have been an awesome show.
Modest Mouse - Broke
Modest Mouse is my favorite band, and ‘Building Nothing Out of Something’ is my favorite album by them. Every time I hear the opening of this song I feel like I’m floating or something. They’re such a patient band and they aren’t scared of repeating parts for 5 minutes at a time. Coolest band. 
Sunny Day Real Estate - One
Been getting into this band a lot lately. ‘Diary’ is a great record but I’ve been stuck on ‘The Rising Tide’ lately. The vocals and use of acoustic guitars draw me in super hard. Also their rythym section is super solid and brings everything together. 
J. Cole – Too Deep For The Intro *Song is not on Spotify
There is nothing more refreshing than J. Cole’s mixtape “Friday Night Lights” It’s honest rap. There is no glam, just solid perspectives on life.
Crime In Stereo - …But You Are Vast
My favorite Crime record is “Is Dead”, this jam is definitely the anchor of the record, it hits home with me lyrically and I can listen to it over and over and not get tired of it.
Modest Mouse - Florida
I love Modest Mouse because every record is different yet the same, every record brings a new theme to the table and I relate to them all. This song isn’t my favorite on the record, but the dynamics and guitar tones make it really fun to listen to. It’s an in between jam that you don’t select right away but you end up learning the words because it’s catchy.
The Eagles – One Of These Nights 
This song is straight groovy. I like listening to the Eagles on vinyl, and I did recently and remembered how cool this song is. This song makes me want to dance.


American Football - Never Meant
I am into more laid back types of music, so American Football has always been a main stay in my music rotation. I love this song because it captures a lot of emotion. It also keeps things laid back but intricate at the same time. Listen to this band! They aren’t a band anymore but still. DO IT!
Listener - Wooden Heart
I’m pretty sure I listen to this song at least twice a day. It is not only different from all the other music on my I pod but it’s so uplifting. There is a lot of hope in this song. I feel like we all need a little hope thrown our way on a daily basis. Lastly, This lyric from the song is amazing, ”Everything falls apart at the exact same time it comes together perfectly for the next step.”
Saves The Day - Shoulder To The Wheel
This song in my opinion is just a great classic pop punk song. I think all bands today can learn from such a great band like Saves The Day. This song is raw, simple, and honest. I love it. Saves The Day will always hold a spot in my heart as one of my favorite bands. - Kyle’s
The Ataris – In This Diary 
I love this song because its a reminder to do what you love and pursue whatever it is you want in life. I was 13 when this song was released. Now, at 22, it really means a lot to me because I’m finally doing exactly what I want to with my life. “Being grown up isn’t half as fun as growing up. These are the best days of our lives.”
New Found Glory - Truth Of My Youth
I love everything about this song. Musically, it’s so upbeat, energetic and fun to listen to. I’ve been feeling very nostalgic lately and this song really brings me back to my early teenage years.
