Five.Bolt.Main was a hard rock music group from Louisville, Kentucky. The band is most notable for featuring Flaw vocalist Chris Volz.

History

Five.Bolt.Main came together after Flaw was dropped from Universal Records in 2004. Chris Volz met with Ivan Arnold and Ben Patrick – whom both were part of Flaw prior to their breakthrough album "Through the Eyes" in 2001. At the time, both Ivan and Ben were in a project called Silent Q, which by the time Flaw disbanded, had enough material written to put an album together. Silent Q included guitarists Aaron Welenken and Jason Chandler. At this point Volz joined the band, which was tentatively titled Vent, but was later changed to Five.Bolt.Main due to legal reasons. Within 7 months the band had scored themselves a record deal with independent label Rock Ridge Music.

Five.Bolt.Main's debut album "Venting" was released on September 13, 2005. The band went through several lineup changes since its release. Roughly a month after the album debuted, members Jason Chandler, Ben Patrick, and Aaron Weleken left the group. Rock Ridge Music claimed "musical differences" and "unforeseen rigors of the road" as the reasons for leaving. However, the exiting members cited Chris Volz's alcohol and drug abuse.ref|leaving Kobie Jackson (Primer 55), Alex Cando (Darwin’s Waiting Room), and Ronny Paige were recruited to fill in, with Alex and Ronny later staying on a permanent basis. To date, the album has sold nearly 25,000 copies which some would consider to be a decent amount due to the lack of exposure the band had.

June 2006 also saw the departure of Ivan Arnold, who left the group due to growing personal differences with Volz, following a well-publicized onstage dispute with the vocalist at Club Sonar in Baltimore, Maryland. ref|arnold Five.Bolt.Main's remaining tour dates were canceled, after attempts by remaining members and Rock Ridge to find a replacement drummer fell through.

On October 10, 2006, the band released "Live", which was recorded in Louisville during their 2006 tour. Plans to release a compilation, tentatively titled "Complete", are in the works, though no substantive new material has been released or recorded by the band. Questions as to the authenticity of these albums remain, as most members of the band have not consented to their release.

On February 28, 2007, a press release from Rock Ridge Music stated that Five.Bolt.Main had disbanded, and Chris Volz would release a solo album in the fall of 2007. ref|disbanded
