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)

Farewell dear Ginette, I wish you fine things
No matter how poor, with you we were kings
But it’s time I must part from within your halls
For time has turned them into cold prison walls
By virtue of strength, I still believe
Through fear of defeat, I will achieve
In these safe horizons my eyes have grown old
In the shadow of doubt I reach to the road
Under shelter with guitar, and dry gin in Mason jar
I’ve wrote many songs that I’ve now long forgot
As each song did slowly fade, so will each chapter made
In the story of who I am not
So farewell dear Ginette, with these words I leave you
For the time has now come, that I bid you adieu
I am bound for the westward, to the rock with a mountain
Wherever I go I’ll be thinking of you
