By the time Florida rock band Further Seems Forever released its much-lauded debut album "The Moon Is Down" in 2001, its formative singer
Chris Carrabba had already exited the group to pursue his solo career with Dashboard Confessional. But, no one likes a story that ends so
abruptly. We want tales that come full circle, bringing the musicians we admire back to where they began. So when Further Seems Forever’s
original lineup reunited for an appearance at the Skate and Surf festival in 2005 (where a mini riot ensued when eager fans couldn’t get in),
hope for something more glimmered. After some friendly reconciliation and some casual music sessions, Further Seems Forever’s original
lineup announced its official reunion in 2010. Chris put his solo project Dashboard Confessional temporarily on hold to pursue this reunion.
"Penny Black", which comes out October 23rd via Rise Records both mirrors and expands upon Further Seems Forever’s early aesthetic. They
have delivered 12 rock songs that resonate deeply with the listener; melodic, passionate and sincere.
Ironically, Further Seems Forever seems bigger these days than ever before. They’ve been able to keep all of their old fans, as well as establish
a whole new generation of fans, whose enthusiasm for the band is just as strong, if not stronger. From front to back, Penny Black is the record
both fans and critics have been longing for. The people spoke and demanded a new Further Seems Forever album, and with "Penny Black" the
band responded with their best body of work to date.
