The widespread popularity of rock’s underground scene has done nothing but grow exponentially with every passing day, adding the rebelliousness of punk and the heartfelt honesty of emo to the lives of a very receptive youth … an audience that could use a little rebellion and honesty as much as anyone.
Fighting on the front line with a driving rock sound, elevated vocals and powerful lyrics stands Further Seems Forever.
The south Florida-based five-some, though somewhat new to the scene, has without question made their mark in music on the whole. A band this young should not be making the music they are; the orchestrations of intricate guitar lines wax and wane with raging power, and are mixed with sing-a-long lyrics that everyone who feels can appreciate.
The last year has proved an eventful one for the band. From losing their frontman in a mutual split only a short time before the release of their first LP, The Moon Is Down (Tooth and Nail Records), to the search for a new singer and a national tour, they have gained recognition as one of rock’s unsung powerhouse acts.
Former frontman Chris Carrabba parted directions with Further early last winter to pursue his acoustic project, Dashboard Confessional, leaving behind an arsenal of awe-striking songs for the band and a pair of really, really big shoes to fill.
After several months of auditions to fill the hot-seat, the men of Further Seems Forever chose 19-year-old Minnesota native Jason Gleason, a long time Further fan professionally trained in rock, opera, and classical to help write the next chapter for the band.
Now touring across the nation making stops nearly every night in a different town, Further Seems Forever is captivating audiences with their unparalleled energetic performances and winning fans the best way they know how: by just playing. This is a band whose zest for life, music and love will carry them far into the future of rock.
Further Seems Forever will play the Owl Cove in Mitten Hall on Feb. 11. Doors at 6:30 pm, $8 for the public, $6 for students.
