Upon being added to the YouTube "Director Videos" section, the first webisode of the hilarious, five-part series garnered over 100,000 views in less than a week, jumping into the Top 5 most viewed features on all of YouTube. The clip was further endorsed by YouTube users with an average viewer rating of 4 out of 5 stars. Fans have been clamoring to receive each webisode via email by subscribing at www.youtube.com/clickfivetv, as evidenced by The Click Five's YouTube channel climbing to the #3 most subscribed channel this week. A new webisode will premiere each week, leading up to the June 26th release of The Click Five's new album, "MODERN MINDS AND PASTIMES."

The webisodes can also be viewed at The Click Five's wildly popular MySpace page (www.myspace.com/theclick5), which boasts over 1.8 million visitors and nearly 160,000 friends. The band's new single, "Jenny," is featured on the page and has been played over 200,000 since being posted in May.

"MODERN MINDS AND PASTIMES" was produced by Mike Denneen (Fountains of Wayne, Aimee Mann). The album's lead single, "Jenny," is at radio now and available for purchase on iTunes. The companion video for "Jenny" is currently being edited and will premiere in the coming weeks.

The Click Five is currently on the road for a special fan appreciation tour. The itinerary is hitting intimate venues in a handful of markets to thank the band's loyal fans for their continued support and introduce their newest member, lead vocalist/guitarist Kyle Patrick. The band has also been invited to perform at various radio shows and at a number of Six Flags Theme Parks across the country (see itinerary below).

Boston-based power-pop/rock group The Click Five exploded onto the pop music scene with their 2005 release, "GREETINGS FROM IMRIE HOUSE," which made an impressive chart debut, entering the Billboard 200 at #15 -- the year's highest-charting debut from a new rock band. The album -- which included collaborations with Fountains of Wayne's Adam Schlesinger, KISS' Paul Stanley, and the Cars' Elliot Easton -- featured the hit singles, "Just The Girl" and "Catch Your Wave."

A CHR/Pop smash, "Just The Girl" was a #1 most-downloaded song on iTunes, leading to RIAA platinum certification as a Digital Single. In addition, the energetic song's companion video rocked MTV as one of the network's most popular clips. "Just The Girl" -- which reached #4 on the TRL countdown -- also received Power rotation play on MTV Hits, along with top 10 streams at MTV.com. The video was seen regularly on Fuse, Nickelodeon, and the N.

The Click Five also made a number of high-profile network TV appearances, including spots on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and NBC's "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" as well as special performances on NBC's broadcast of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City and TNT's "Christmas In Washington."

Online, The Click Five's Myspace.com page -- www.myspace.com/theclick5 -- hit #1 on the Most Viewed Band Page ranking, beating out thousands of other artists around the world.
