The FIXX has been heralded as one of the most innovative bands to come out of the MTV era and their new album Every Five Seconds proves their ‘80s days were no fluke.

The FIXX’s themes are often complex, introspective, and thought-provoking, but not without widespread mass appeal. For four decades, the style and substance of the band has always created a special connection with its audience.
The ten-song set, with cover artwork once again by George Underwood (David Bowie, T-Rex), was produced by Stephen W Tayler for Chimera Arts (Kate Bush, Stevie Nicks, Peter Gabriel) and mastered by Alex Wharton (Paul McCartney, My Bloody Valentine, The Chemical Brothers) at Abbey Road Studios in London. Of the new album, their first in nearly a decade, lead singer Cy Curnin commented, “Life can either be a series of broken obsessive thoughts or it can be a wonderful mosaic of moments. Every Five Seconds reflects this human paradox. The constant struggle between bewilderment and betterment.” The FIXX’s classic lineup remains intact, Cy Curnin (vocals), Jamie West-Oram (guitar), Rupert Greenall (keyboards), Dan K. Brown (bass guitar) and Adam Woods (drums).
Over the past four decades, they’ve garnered three No.1 hits, five more in the Top 5. and a dozen which reached the Top 10. With millions of albums sold worldwide, classic songs like “One Thing Leads To Another,” “Red Skies,” and “Saved By Zero” remain everyday staples on the playlists of the Rock, Triple A, and Alternative radio stations that continue to flaunt new acts inspired by the era that The FIXX helped to define.
