Gleason likens his time with Further Seems Forever as a marriage that came to an end. The business side of things brought upon most of the bad blood in the band, "It stopped being fun, and started being a business, and whatever emotions and conflicts that come along with that statement, it was my time to go. I think Jon Bunch stepped in and did a bang up job."
Further Seems Forever have announced that mewithoutYou will support their reunion dates at the Theatre of Living Arts in Philadelphia on April 28 and the Paradise Rock Club in Boston on April 29. Additionally, they have added that their first performance since the band's original lineup reunited, on Thursday, April 14, is at Propaganda in Lake Worth, Florida.
When I was in high school, Further Seems Forever was one of the bands that shaped my musical spectrum. Three albums, three different lead singers, three different approaches. 2001’s The Moon Is Down featured Chris Carrabba before he was the crooner of Dashboard Confessional, while 2003’s How To Start The Fire put Jason Gleason’s fiery vocals on display. This band meant a lot to me, and now is a great time to discover the different styles of FSF. If you were a big fan, we’d love to hear your recollections of the band in the replies.
Jon Bunch and Derick Cordoba of Sense Field and Further Seems Forever fame are heading out on an acoustic tour where they will be playing Sense Field and Further Seems Forever favorites.
