Nottingham’s hard rock/alternative metal 5-piece, Fahran, will release a brand new single, Stand Alone, on Friday 09 November 2018.

Guitarist, Chris Byrne, explains, “Matt (Black) has been able to grow as a singer since joining us and he has been able to adapt his high register to allow us explore a heavier approach. We are not ignoring what we have done on Chasing Hours (debut album), but this gives us an additional bolder approach to our sound. Stand Alone is the first song where you can hear that and its bloody exciting to have the extra depth and breadth to draw upon.”

He continued, “There’s a bit of extra angst to the lyrics also. I feel a lot of frustration that we seem to be constantly manipulated and lied to by the powers above us. This song is about standing up to that and making your voice heard; to challenge that world and to not accept what these people get away with.”

The single was recorded at Fahran’s own studios in Nottingham. It was engineered and mixed by Jake Graham and produced by Fahran. Stand Alone will be available via all leading digital streaming and download outlets. The song will be accompanied by a full promo video, released on Weds 07 November on YouTube and Facebook.
