Rejoice ye local lovers of emo-rock! Broward emo heroes Further Seems Forever will reunite onstage with their prodigal platinum selling singer, April 14th at Propaganda in Lake Worth!
Back in 2000, The now ubiquitous platinum-selling monolith known as Dashboard Confessional was a mere an acoustic side project for Further Seems Forever frontman Chris Carrabba. FSF, an emo-punk band comprised of Carrabba and the members of straight edge hardcore act Strongarm, formed in 1998 and immediately made a mark by getting their tune "Vengeance Factor" placed in the 4th installment of the highly influential Deep Elm Records compilation series: "The Emo Diaries."
The band toured steadily, quickly landing a record deal with high profile indie label Tooth & Nail. Unfortunately, guitarist Nick Dominguez didn't want to leave his day job. So after a few tours with multiple substitute guitarists, Carrabba recorded his debut Dashboard Confessional CD,"The Swiss Army Romance," and began opening for the band with short, solo sets.
Needless to say, those sets were well-received, and Carrabba parted ways with Further Seems Forever after recording their debut CD, "The Moon Is Down."
After Carrabba's exit, FSF soldiered on, often opening up for Dashboard Confessional - before finally giving up the ghost in 2006 when drummer Steve Kleisath discovered he was the last original member and didn't want to play in a Further Seems Forever cover band.
When Carrabba moved back to South Florida in 2009, backyard barbecues and 12 ounce curls with his old band mates led to jam sessions. Those begat this spring's slate of shows, celebrating the 10-year anniversary of "The Moon Is Down." The Propaganda show is a warm up for the Groezrock festival in Belgium. So catch your homeboys in a small club before they play in front of tens of thousands. Ticket information will be released soon on this event page.
