Friday May 12th will see Sydney’s Far Away Stables release their debut album ‘Between Rage and Serenity‘.
A blistering, complex, interesting, twisting-and-turning album, Far Away Stables might just be one of Australia’s most intriguing heavy acts. Album ‘Between Rage and Serenity’ is now available for pre-order at iTunes. They are following up the release with two release launch shows – Melbourne 3rd June at BANG! and Sydney 9th June at Red Rattler. After the release of Caldera last month, they are unveiling Phantasm, the second cut from the record. Caldera clocked up 40,000 views in less than a week. been spun on triple j’s Short Fast Loud a bunch and has been added to official Spotify playlist “Homegrown and Heavy” and certainly, there is no reason to expect that Phantasm will see any less success. It is available now in iTunes and Spotify. Far Away Stables have shared the stage with some of the biggest names in music today including Paramore, The Offspring, Billy Talent, Bayside, Northlane, Hands Like Houses, British India and The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, just to name a few.
Far Away Stables’ album “Between Rage and Serenity” was Produced, Mixed & Mastered by Sonny Truelove @ STL Studios in Sydney and additional Engineering was handled by Evan Lee @ STL Studios as well. Tim from Far Away Stables is more than enthusiastic about the forthcoming record. “This is the album we’ve envisioned releasing since the bands inception, both conceptually and musically.
To finally get to this point of releasing a song that we love, which we think is a solid representation of the sound we want, is extremely exciting and we hope the fans enjoy it too.” Forming in late 2011, Far Away Stables came together as one after merging several projects involving Tim Byles (Bass), Mitchell Grace (Guitar/Vocals) and Brendan Sheargold (Vocals) and then quickly recruiting long time friends Nick Palmer (Guitar) and Cam Bury (Drums/Vocals) into the band.
Finding their sound came naturally after releasing EPs THE ART OF MADNESS and A BEGGAR’S PLEA to a huge reception – both are now entirely sold out. With a sound that – when described – draws on a mesh of influences like Angels and Airwaves, 30 Seconds To Mars, Circa Survive, Brand New, Saosin and The Getaway Plan, you can be assured that it’s going to tug at the heartstrings.
It’s familiar, it’s catchy, it’s raw and emotional – Far Away Stables’ infectious sound will leave you wanting more. In March 2014, Far Away Stables released Atlantis with the lead single ‘WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?’ which received airtime from triple j and Triple MMM, as well as rotation on several US stations. Atlantis was received with critical acclaim with KillYourStereo.com giving it 9.5/10 and saying that “Atlantis is something that is genuinely unique and captivating” and that “this is a rock record that will be on your playlist”.
