Five Stories Falling is a five-song EP released by Thursday in 2002. The first four tracks are live versions of songs from Full Collapse, recorded while the band performed on the Vans Warped Tour. The fifth track, a new song named "Jet Black New Year", quickly became popular amongst fans; the song featured Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance performing screamed background vocals. The EP also featured stories by each of the band members, including touring (and now permanent) keyboardist Andrew Everding.
On their UK Tour in 2006, when introducing the song "Jet Black New Year", lead singer Geoff Rickly publicly urged the crowd present not to purchase this E.P. but to download "Jet Black New Year" instead.
