Eight years is a long to time to be in any relationship, especially a
public one. Far-Less has had many ups and downs, even a break-up or
two, but we have made music that we are proud to call our own and had
a lot of fun doing it. This being said, Far-Less is going on an
indefinite hiatus following our summer plans. No doubt we will play
some shows down the road, but now is the time for us to think about
our futures and work on our other projects.
To say the group is getting out of the music scene would be a total
lie. We are, however, moving on to new things. Far-Less has been a
life changing experience, but remaining friends is the most important
thing to us right now and it is obvious to us that this is the best
course of action.
We will be releasing the Headache EP and will be touring this summer.
Here are our confirmed dates, with more to come soon.
06/04/09 Peabody’s Pirates Cove (Cleveland, OH)
06/06/09 Eleanor Rigby’s (Jermyn, PA)
06/07/09 Hangar 84 (Vineland, NJ)
06/08/09 Highline Ballroom (New York, NY)
06/09/09 IOTA Cafe (Arlington, VA)
Our final show will be on August 14th @ Greene Street in Greensboro, NC, featuring old band members and old songs.
Jordan Powers is filling in on bass for the House of Fools
(www.myspace.com/houseoffools). He and Brandon Welch will be working
on new material that is unrelated to Far-Less, not to mention the Jack
Devil’s Band. Brandon Welch, Brandon Hackler, and Tyler Hill will be
working on a new project called Werewolves In Their Youth. Hackler
will continue his recording endeavors.
