Fake Problems first documented their sound on the 2005 album Watching the Bull Get the Matador, though it had some electronic undertones rather than just the twangy country-folk-rock later releases would showcase further. Originally planned as a solo outing for vocalist/guitarist Chris Farren, Fake Problems hail from the Southern coastal vacation town of Naples, FL. Occupying the space between alt-country, folk, and indie pop with an added dose of punk D.I.Y. appeal, Farren ultimately got together with some high-school buddies — bassist/vocalist Derek Perry, guitarist Casey Lee, and drummer Sean Stevenson — to go at it as a full band. The guys played around locally, burning their own CDs and screening their own shirts, eventually booking tours outside of their hometown and now they very rarely come home, many Floridians miss them dearly throughout the year. The band continued touring around the southeast U.S. and readied its next album, How Far Our Bodies Go, with producer Rob McGregor. Early 2007 dates opening for Against Me! & The Riverboat Gamblers led into the record’s April appearance1.
