Further Seems Forever

Although Further Seems Forever never managed to retain a lead singer for longer than one album, the Florida-based band wielded considerable influence in the emo arena, becoming one of the genre's most acclaimed bands despite maintaining a relatively low profile. Formed in Pompano Beach, the band first took its lineup from three local groups: Strongarm, Shai Hulud, and the Vacant Andys. Vocalist Chris Carrabba fronted the outfit, while bassist Chad Neptune, drummer Steve Kleisath, and guitarists Josh Colbert and Nick Dominguez provided the rhythmic backbone. "Vengeance Factor," a song recorded for a Deep Elm compilation entitled Emo Diaries, helped attract an early fanbase, and a split EP with Recess Theory (From the 27th State) followed in July 1999. Embracing a mix of pop-influenced melodies, religious lyrics, and emocore tinges, Further Seems Forever released its full-length debut with 2001's Moon Is Down, released by the Christian-affiliated Tooth & Nail label. The group soon changed singers when Carrabba decided to pursue a solo career as Dashboard Confessional, a emo project that -- unlike Further Seems Forever -- would go on to enjoy both critical acclaim and mainstream success.

Further Seems Forever recruited former Affinity frontman Jason Gleason, and the revised band forged ahead with their new singer. Whereas Carrabba's vocals had sounded vulnerable and pained, Gleason's own voice emphasized intensity and wide range. He was first introduced to fans when the new lineup appeared on two compilations, Rock Music: A Tribute to Weezer and Punk Goes Pop. Meanwhile, additional lineup changes took place as Derick Cordoba replaced Dominguez in time for February 2003's How to Start a Fire. A powerful effort, the sophomore album proved that Further Seems Forever was more than the pre-Dashboard vehicle for Chris Carrabba, who had already made a name for himself as a solo artist. As luck would have it, though, Gleason exited the group just as work on a third album was beginning.

Undeterred, the rest of Further Seems Forever reached out to vocalist Jon Bunch, whose previous band, Sense Field, had recently dissolved. Bunch agreed to become the band's third frontman, and Hide Nothing introduced the new lineup in August 2004. The group supported its release by touring alongside Sparta, Copeland, and the Starting Line, but by the following year, the musicians had shifted their priorities. Further Seems Forever went on a brief hiatus that November, with Neptune announcing his desire to focus on family matters instead. A formal breakup arrived in early 2006, punctuated by a farewell tour and the March release of Hope This Finds You Well, a career retrospective that included fan favorites, rarities, and B-sides. 567 Records then issued the CD/DVD The Final Curtain in early April 2007, which included unreleased material and footage of Further Seems Forever's last show on June 17, 2006. ~ Andrew Leahey & Corey Apar, Rovi

These guys opened for New Found Glory, Finch, and Someting Corporate at my first concert ever...been in love since 2003!!
Greatest band ever.
Further Seems Forever is BACKKK!!! The bio needs to be updated! : )
One of the best bands that could never keep a good lead singer.
I don't know if you could count this or Dashboard Confessional or Underoath as Emotional/Em o t i v e Hardcore Punk Rock (aka Emocore or Emo) at all. None of them sound anything like Rites of Spring, Sunny Day Real Estate, Cap'n Jazz, Christie Front Drive, etc..
ok you whipper spappers spouting off about the lack of originality need to look at the dates on the bands you think are original. This band was doing this sound when a lot of you were still in diapers. I'm not the biggest emo fan out there but all the bands you like today (emo or related) trace their sound back to this band or at least have a passing acquaintance with it by way of Dashboard. I am not really a fan only because emo really isn't my scene but if it's yours just recognize your roo
They seem to be penises. Very little originality and preying on the stupidity of the consumer.
Well, Underoath and Further Seems Forever are both Christian bands, but I'm not sure if that's an attribute Pandora analyzes. I'd agree that Underoath's more popular songs don't seem like a fit, but they have some softer songs that fit surprisingly well into this genre. Personally, I love when bands can showcase their talents in a variety of genres.
Whoever did compare them to underoath knows a little bit about music and knows that they are simalar in ways that deeper than thinking of them as. If that sounded mean I'm sorry. God Blesses you!
Singlehanded l y redeemed the emo genre for me. One of my favorite bands.
Meh, seems to be a rather cloying and generic band
I want to make it clear that i am not "dissing" the band but not in a million years would i compare these guys to Underoath. whoever thinks that they are similar needs to get off the crack!

If you don't like the band then just don't comment. I have this fantasy that we still have manners in this world.
annoying, incessant, begging for the punk label, but they fail miserably... .
eeeeew. gay. emo is so stupid.
i looooove this band. absolutely delicious.
they are not my favorite but they are pretty good
