Sorry I haven’t been really posting any new content lately, I’ve been extremely busy, but I’ll try to get some up when I can.
So you’re new to the IM5 family. No matter how you’ve found them, the fans welcome you!
Here’s some information to help get you familiar with this band/fandom!
This is a masterpost of their music videos. They haven’t yet released an album.
There are five members. Here’s some info about each, and if you click on the name it takes you to a Youtube video of their introduction from about a year ago.
Dalton Louis Rapattoni- 17 years old. Born February 6, 1996
(Boy, it was hard to decide on a photo for him).
Dalton was born in Memphis, but moved to Dallas when he was young. He plays guitar and used to be in a band called Fly Away Hero and they were actually super good! (if you like New Found Glory or super old Fall Out Boy, you’ll like Fly Away Hero. I promise.) He’s the emo/ dangerous archetype in the group (I hear the fangirls now: But he’s not emo! Ssshhhh, no, just accept it. It’s not a bad thing. Some things associated are. But that’s another story.) He likes Doctor Who and has a lovely girlfriend named Madison. He’s loud and funny, and relatable which is always nice.
Cole Alan Pendery- 17 years old. Born February 22, 1996
Cole is from Texas, loves Adventure Time and used to play soccer.
He’s the whitest white boy.He grew up in a town south of Dallas and used to be in choir. Wears a lot of beanies and plays a lot of Xbox. He decided in the 8th grade that he wanted to be in music for the rest of his life. LIke dayum that is a young age to make such a decision. Mini JT right here. Great mix of dorky cutie pie, and loud hottie.
Dana Vaughns- 15 years old. Born January 2, 1998
Dana is from near Pittsburg, Pennysylvania. He used to work with Kidz Bop and is a FANTASTIC dancer. He’s been dancing since he was very young, and got into singing about 2 years before joining the band. Prankster of sorts. He very genuinely cares about his friends and fans, like WOW. Don’t let the fact that he’s the youngest fool you. He’s capable of a lot. He generally fits the “swagalicious” kind of archtype, but is so much more than that. Sweet little darling.
Gabe Morales- 18 years old. Born June 22, 1995
Gabe is the oldest. He is from Miami and is Cuban and Venezuelan. He used to be in a group called Power of Three and he really likes Batman. He even has two dogs named Batman and Robin. He has a girlfriend named Alex and they are so cute together! He’s very fun and crazy, and he seems like the quiet type at first, but he’s very goofy and interesting.
Will Jay Behlendorf- 17 years old. Born June 18, 1996.
Will Jay (aka Will) is a nerdy, goofy, sweetheart. He was born and raised in Los Angeles. He plays the piano and did a lot of theater as a kid. He likes a lot of R&B and old school music, but also went through a rap/ hip hop phase. Generally just multi faceted in his tastes. He’s always hungry and has a very lovely sense of humor (not to mention a gorgeous laugh). Will and Dalton sometimes write songs together such as Superman.
Other things of note:
- The fans are usually called 5ers, and as a group are a 5amily. This comes from a joke when Dalton said the 5 looked like an F.
- The boys tour and do a ton of meet and greets. If you get the chance, go meet them!!
- Dana and Will are single, and Cole is rumored to be.
- There is rarely any drama…really ever around here. If you have any questions about the “drama” feel free to ask me as I try to stay as unbiased as possible.
These are 5 wonderful boys. Let’s all have fun admiring them together, yes?
