Far Tin Cans With Strings To You on Limited Edition 2LP
Formed in 1991, Sacramento, California's Far blazed a trail for a generation of alternative rock bands over their eight year career, garnering critical acclaim at home and abroad by combining heartfelt, dynamic, vocals with a more streamlined musical approach than their contemporaries in the Pacific Northwest.
The brainchild of Jonah Matranga (OneLineDrawing, New End Original) and Shaun Lopez (Rival Schools, Crosses), Far released their cult-classic major label debut Tin Cans With Strings to You via Epic/Immortal in April 1996 bringing a maturity and sensitivity heretofore unheard among their contemporaries and paving a path for bands like Biffy Clyro, Coheed & Cambria and Thursday by adding a refreshing emotional muscle to unfettered, driving rock songs.
Immediately met with critical acclaim, Tin Cans With Strings to You introduced far to a national audience via an aggressive marketing campaign and touring schedule with the likes of Incubus and Deftones, bringing their unique band of emotional rock to arenas across the nation. In the years that have past, the long out of print classic has grown to an mythological status and a touchstone moment for alternative rock in the '90's and beyond.
Mastered for vinyl from the original tapes, Tin Cans With Strings to You stands as landmark masterwork untouched by time that rewards listeners with every spin. Making full use of the dynamic range that only high quality vinyl can provide, this special 2LP deluxe reissue is sure to be a hit with fans and collectors alike.
"Without Jonah Matranga's soul-striating honesty and gut-punch emotional potency over the last 10 years, the current crop of sensitive boys with guitars would sound a whole lot different" – Kerrang! Magazine
