FAR AND AWAY: Three Songs Available For Free Download

FAR AND AWAY, the new project featuring three former members of the Raleigh, North Carolina-based progressive doom metal band CONFESSOR — guitarists Brian Shoaf and Chris Nolan, along with drummer Steve Shelton — has made three songs ("Chest is Bleeding", "Fall" and "Drifting") available for free download at ReverbNation.

FAR AND AWAY will make its live debut on Friday, February 4 at DIVEbar in Raleigh. Also appearing on the bill is PARASITE DRAG, the "fuzzed-out desert rock" band featuring Cary Rowells (bass; also ex-CONFESSOR) and Marcus Williams (ex-AGE OF DESPAIR).

FAR AND AWAY plans to enter the studio later this year to begin recording material for its debut album. In the meantime, you can hear demo versions of the-above-mentioned songs using the TuneWidget below.

Vocalist Scott Jeffreys left CONFESSOR in early 2009 "due to job demands," causing the band to go on "permanent hiatus."

CONFESSOR's "Live in Norway" DVD was recorded in September 2005 in Oslo, Norway and was released in 2006 via Season of Mist.

The band released its latest full-length album, "Unraveled", in 2005 via Season of Mist.

CONFESSOR split up in the early '90s after releasing one full-length album (1991's "Condemned") and EP (1992's "Confessor"), with the with the rhythm section going on to form FLY MACHINE. CONFESSOR reformed in 2002 following the death of guitarist Ivan Colon, who passed away due to cardiac complications.
