After a number of local releases including their first demo tape Sweat A River, Live No Lies (1991) and two independent albums Listening Game (1992) and Quick (1994) they signed to Epic/Immortal Records and released their first major record, Tin Cans With Strings To You (1996). Their next release was an E.P. titled Soon (1997), which was quickly followed up by their fourth and most popular album to date, Water & Solutions (1998). This record attracted a strong cult following in the late 90s, due mostly to the single "Mother Mary" and their touring with long time friends the Deftones, and Incubus.
Since their 1999 split, the former members of Far have been involved in a number of projects, often quite experimental in nature.
