Post-hardcore legends Far are set to return with their first original material since 1998’s ‘Water and Solutions’. The band’s melodic appeal and classic song writing has lived on to inspire an entire scene. Far are increasingly cited as an influence by bands such as Biffy Clyro, Jimmy Eat World, Hundred Reasons, Funeral For A Friend and Thursday to name but a few. Far’s brand new album ‘At Night We Live’ is released on 24th May through Xtra Mile Recordings, preceded by the download single ‘Deafening’ a week earlier.
The release of ‘At Night We Live’ follows the band’s low key limited 7’’ single release ‘Pony’ originally by American hip-hop artist Ginuwine. The cover, originally demoed as a bit of fun between friends, encouraged huge unexpected radio play and over 4 million plays on MySpace.
Far’s fifth studio album was recorded at The Airport Studio. It was produced by guitarist Shaun Lopez whom during the band’s hiatus has recorded albums for Will Haven, Giant Drag and friends the Deftones (the title track of ‘At Night We Live’ was written for Deftones bassist Chi Cheng).
