Colony 5 is a Swedish futurepop/synthpop/EBM band founded in March 1999. P-O Svensson started the band as a hobby with Magnus Löfdahl. The music style has changed with group membership and their sound became more consistent. They have toured through Europe - Denmark, Russia, Germany, Belgium, Holland, Switzerland, Poland, Norway, Estonia as well as the United States, and Mexico [1].

The band's name is a reference to a location mentioned in the second Star Trek episode, Charlie X.[1]

Following a performance at the Quest for Fame contest (they came second) [2], they began recording their first EP, Colony 5, and their first full CD, Lifeline. they released their second single, "Follow Your Heart", then in 2003, the single "Black," and the album Structures, which was featured on NBC Giga. Their output slowed in 2004 and 2005, as they toured eastern Europe. They released a collection of singles called Colonisation and a new album in 2005, Fixed.

The band came in second at the "Quest for Fame" competition and was nominated as "Best Newcomer" at the Scandinavian Alternative Music Awards 2005 [3]. And again for Best Band and Best Song (Plastic World) at Scandinavian Alternative Music Awards 2006 which they won.

On December 14, 2007 Colony 5 released the first single from their, then upcoming full length album, Buried Again.[2] The "Knives" MCD showed off a harder sound as a first taste of what the album would sound like. Buried Again was released in February 2008 on Memento Materia for Scandinavia, Infacted for Germany and ArtOfFact in the USA.

Colony 5 is currently working on a new album, aimed for release in 2012.[3][1]
