New year, new me, same albums on repeat. 

It's 2019, and that means that a lot of our favourite albums and EPs are celebrating some pretty big milestones. Here are 11 that are celebrating FIVE YEARS:

NECK DEEP - 'WISHFUL THINKING' 
Their debut album, and the one that launched Neck Deep into our hearts and minds. Hard to believe that Neck Deep have only been a staple of our lives for the past five years- but what a glorious five years it's been.

ISSUES - 'ISSUES'
Another huge debut album turning five this year! Issues' self-titled followed their 'Black Diamonds' EP, and fun fact- it came in at number 16 in the Rock Sound Top 50 Albums of 2014! 

WE ARE THE IN CROWD - 'WEIRD KIDS' 
Oh, We Are The In Crowd. We miss you. And in 2019 we're celebrating five years of 'Weird Kids'- no pressure, but if you want to call off that hiatus for an anniversary tour, we'd be down.

BABYMETAL - 'BABYMETAL'
2014 was truly the year of the huge debut. BABYMETAL also burst onto the scene with their enormous self-titled album. 2014 was a very big year for music.

WATERPARKS - 'BLACK LIGHT'
Technically an EP (even though they call it an album right there on the album artwork), this bad boy brought us some deep cut hits in the form of 'I'm A Natural Blue' and 'Easter Egg'. It's also inadvertantly part of the reason that the next Waterparks album title has to start with the letter F.

BEARTOOTH - 'DISGUSTING'
ANOTHER STELLAR DEBUT ALBUM. So good that when Rock Sound reviewed it, we said that the lyrics "...are like bloodstained diary entries".

FRNK IERO & THE CELLABRATION - '.STOMACHACHES'
One of Frank's many bands, and the first iteration of his Frank Iero And The __________ (he's just announced his third reimagining of the band: Frank Iero And The Future Violents). '.Stomachaches.' presented us with one of the best love songs of the past decade in the form of 'She's The Prettiest Girl At The Party, And She Can Prove It With a Solid Right Hook'. 

GERARD WAY - 'HESITANT ALIEN'
It wasn't what anyone expected, but boy was it charming. Gone were the MCR influences, instead replaced by a dash of brit-pop. Hard to believe this bad boy has been in our lives for five years.

LOWER THAN ATLANTIS - 'LOWER THAN ATLANTIS'
2014 wasn't just the year of great debut albums, it was also the year of great self-titled albums- and Lower Than Atlantis was truly one of the best.

BLACK VEIL BRIDES - 'BLACK VEIL BRIDES'
See what we mean about the self-titled thing? Black Veil Brides stormed into 2014 with their fourth album! Five years ago!

PVRIS - 'WHITE NOISE'
Can we please talk about PVRIS' debut album for a second? It was such a moment, and is still a bit of a damn masterpiece. Long live 'White Noise'.
