Artist Biography
After a number of local releases including their first demo tape Sweat A River , Live No Lies (1991) and an album Listening Game (1992) they signed to Epic/Immortal Records and released their first major record, Tin Cans With Strings To You.

Their second album, Water & Solutions, was released in 1998 and attracted a cult following. The more melodic sound showcased on this album is increasingly cited as an influence on present-day emo rock bands by the rock press, ie: Thursday, Biffy Clyro, Jimmy Eat World. Certainly it was a departure from their earlier, much more hardcore sound (although it is still far from the emo-pop that it would quickly come to inspire).
Since their 1999 split, the former members of Far have been involved in a number of projects, often quite experimental in nature. Frontman Jonah Matranga especially went on to form the now defunct band New End Original and continue his solo project Onelinedrawing. Matranga “broke up” Onelinedrawing in August of 2004. In 2005 the singer’s new band Gratitude released their debut self-titled record on Atlantic Records. Gratitude however called it a day towards the end of 2005, playing their last US Tour before splitting in December 2005.
