Family Force Five is a rock band from Atlanta, Georgia whose last album, Business Up Front/Party in the Back, is now out in Diamond Edition. Kidzworld caught up with lead singer Solomon Olds (better known as Soul Glow Activatur) at one of the band's first dates with [KWLINK 6846]Warped Tour!

Sindy: How's Warped Tour going so far? Soul Glow Activatur: It's been great. This is our second date on it, and we're getting to play places we've never played before, San Francisco being one of them. We're playing all the way up until August 11th - all over North America.

Sindy: Did you ever go to Warped Tour as a fan before being on the tour?
Soul Glow Activatur: Yeah, actually. About three or four years ago I did go. I went to see My Chemical Romance. It was really cool.

Sindy: So what kind of music did you grow up listening to?
Soul Glow Activatur: Probably Prince, The Beastie Boys, Rage Against the Machine, and um... I'll say Hall and Oates, just for fun.

Sindy: So what are you listening to these days?
Soul Glow Activatur: (Canadian indie duo) Death from Above 1979. Oh, and I'm really getting into this DJ called Justice. He's great.

Sindy: So I've read you were in a boy band when you were much younger. How did you transition from that into a rock band?
Soul Glow Activatur: Yeah, I guess that's right. We were in a boy band when we were little - around 13, 14 years old. We just moved in a more rock direction as we got older, I guess. Learned to play guitar and just sort of moved on from there. It just kept building and building. We have a bus now! That's pretty cool.
