Formed out of the ashes of Toxic Federation, Fahran have the current line-up of: Matt Black, Jake Graham, Joshua Ballantyne, Chris Byrne and JR Windsor.
They released their self-produced, self-titled debut album after just 6 months together, to great reviews. Whilst still retaining melodic sensibilities, the band decided that a new name warranted a change of direction, hence a much darker, heavier and far more mature sound.
In the 12 months that the band has been together, Fahran have enjoyed success as the openers on the debut I AM I tour in October 2012 (ZP ex-Dragonforce's new melodic rock venture), plus supported UK rock troubadours, Heaven's Basement in Feb 2013. In addition to this, the band appeared at BT London Live in London's Hyde Park as part of the London 2012 celebrations and have made appearances at prestigious festivals such as Bloodstock and Download Festival.
After suffering a set-back in the form of Bass player Alex Stroud and Singer Nick Whitcroft having to step down from the band, Fahran have only become stronger. Having drafted Josh Ballantyne (ex bass player for This Is Two) and Matt Black (ex singer for Serpentine) things are running full steam ahead.
The band are currently writing songs for their 2nd album and will no doubt be playing as many shows as they can, honing their sound and performance further and beyond their years.
This is a band that has worked for all they have achieved, leaving them with a seasoned gravitas. Fahran continue to forge a sound far greater than the sum of their parts that is redolent of no one and is entirely their own.
