Far Announce West Coast Headline Tour
At Night We Live out May 25
Los Angeles, CA (April 14, 2010) – Far has just announced two weeks of dates through the western US surrounding the May 25 release of their fifth full-length, At Night We Live (Vagrant). The band warms up on a handful of dates later this month opening for The Used before kicking off their own headline dates with a special former-hometown-Sacramento, California show on May 18 at The Empire. More dates will be announced in the coming weeks.
Considered one of the most influential rock bands from the late 90’s, Far is releasing their first new music after a ten-year absence. The band – Jonah Matranga – vocals/guitar, Shaun Lopez – guitar, John Gutenberger – bass, and Chris Robyn – drummer – got their start in Sacramento in the early ‘90’s and released four full-length albums before disbanding in 1998, soon after the release of Water & Solutions (Epic/Immortal). That album was considered one of the most influential post-hardcore records ever by Alternative Press and Kerrang! magazines, among others, and remains a touchstone for bands as diverse as blink-182, My Chemical Romance, and Deftones.
Far will be announcing special pre-order offers for At Night We Live on Monday, April 19 and fans can now hear “Deafening,” the lead track from the new album, on the band’s MySpace page: http://www.myspace.com/far. A video album teaser will debut next week, too. The six-minute in-depth clip features exclusive interviews with the band discussing their return and the making of At Night We Live.
