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.
All songs by Farler's Fury except bagpipe melodies in Common Ground, Egos and Icons, and The Queen and The Sea (Traditional)

I lead myself into things head first
Aim at a target and give my best shot
But when dealing with sharks I anticipate the worst
I’ll never turn into something I am not
I have my demons you’ll have to forgive
And I’ll always stand up for the principles I believe in
And in a context distorted by alcohol
It’s pretty fucking easy to derive and get lost
Well you’ll go your way, I’ll go mine
And we’ll deal with the consequences in time
But the lines are blurred between you and me
Now tidal waves are rushing through me, I start to lose my grip
We’re both seeing red and about to throw our fists
As our dearest friends are slowly turning their backs on us
I never thought those angry years would haunt me again
Now that the smoke has cleared, I’ve made my peace
The sands of time made me realize
I’ve only ever walked a mile in my own shoes
But will we ever find common ground?
