Name Change

There has been alot of confusion over the name change. I would like to post it here and now to clear up any questions you may have.

About a month ago UFT was approached by two people interested in management/booking and promotion for the band. Being in the music business for a while they knew of a band Unified Theory out of San Diego. They thought it would be in our best interest to change the name, considering that Unified Theory was somewhat established- being ex-members of Pearl Jam and Blind Melon.

The problem was that people had come to our shows thinking they were going to see Unified Theory- and they wanted to make sure there was no confusion that we were them. The biggest issue is an unknown variable- Unified Theory is currently not touring, but should they decide to and have a problem with us having a similar name they would be able to sue us to not use it. So, to avoid any future problems we decided it was best to change the name.

Our new name is Collect All Five. It seems like we are going to stick with it. The name was a result of many hours of brainstorming with the group, finding something we could all agree on (and that is pretty tough). We hope everyone likes it, it was a somewhat hasty decision on our part but in the long run we think it will be best. The question whether it is the best name for us has been raised by many. I don't know if it is the best name for us, if we come up with something better we may go with that. Until that happens we are who we are. Collect All Five

Would a band by any other name sound as sweet?
