Farler's Fury aren't your typical celtic punk band. Think punk rock with bagpipes combined with the lyrics you find deep in the soul of folk. They might be one of the hardest working bands that you need to know about. Since 2003, they've recorded 2 EPs, 2 full-lengths and over 300 shows across Canada, Europe and the Midwestern US.
From start to finish, Farler's Fury's 2nd album Purgatory Quebec, had me dancing out the defeats and throwing away my regrets. The upbeat punk rock tempo glues you to, what feels like, a shared underlying story that unfolds one's experiences of following the fire that constantly rings in the heart. The lead guitar-like bagpipes and mandolin add a nostalgic, folk waltz backdrop to the punk ethos of my youth.

A figure sits still beyond the line of sight
A familiar friend, a child of the night
Suspense is built, no feelings of defeat
The anticipation’s one of bitter sweet
This moment once planned has now come at last
A reunion of sorts, a tribute to the past
An order is filled, a last glance behind
A crowd has formed, another waits outside
A laugh is shared in the wake of remorse
Faith grew weak as time took its course
The moment of truth, a fork in the road
A memento is saved, the rest bagged and sold
A brief return to the comfort of dark
A tradition upheld, a gesture from the heart
Electricity surges as emotions stir
A bomb goes off, the rest becomes a blur
