Five-Eight is a band from Athens, Georgia.
Five-Eight is known for their energetic live shows, and has recorded six Compact Discs since 1992. They have toured with REM (fall 2004), and have performed with Cheap Trick, The Ramones, Cracker, Pylon, and Seven Mary Three. The group is prominent in the Athens/Atlanta area and headlines an annual mental health benefit concert in Athens.
The band came together in 1988 in Athens when the earlier incarnation known as The Reasonable Men disbanded. Before settling on the name Five Eight, at least one show was played under the name The Helgrammites.
