Influential 1990s post-hardcore act Far have signed with Vagrant Records. The band is currently completing work on their fifth studio album and label debut.

The band originally split in 1999 but reunited last year for a few shows.

"We had no idea all this would happen," said frontman Jonah Matranga. "We were just planning on getting to know each other again and playing a few shows, in between everything else we’ve got going on. But now, all of a sudden, the songs are coming, and it feels really good. All we’ve ever promised as people and as a band is that whatever we put out, whenever we come around, we’re gonna mean it."

The band’s last album came over a decade ago — 1998’s Water & Solutions on Epic/Immortal. It was included in last year’s 10 Influential Albums of 1998 feature in AP #242.
