If you have been in and around the UK recently, you may have heard of Nottingham based hard rock band, Fahran. They have toured with bands such as Heavens Basement, Kamelot, The Answer, UFO amongst many others.
Having two successful albums behind them and having played prestigious UK festivals such as Bloodstock, Download Festival, Hard Rock Hell and many more, Fahran have also just announced they will be adding Amplified festival 2018 to their extensive festival repertoire.
Now, the midlands based hard rockers are back with their new single State of Mind. State of Mind addresses the issue of mental health and has been created from a two point perspective. It delivers an interesting narrative and visually fast paced video combining performance with storyline.
The track boasts heavy riffs, huge choruses and soaring vocals and they do not disappoint!

Fahran consists of Matt Black (Vocals), Jake Graham (Guitar), Josh Fahran(Drums), Josh Ballantyne (Bass) and Chris Byrne (Guitar).
Guitarist Josh Fahran describes the song. “The brand new single State of Mindis from the forthcoming album Vapours that will land Summer 2018. As a band, we have definitely stepped it up and developed a heavier sound to our music. State of Mind is like a bridge between our previous album Chasing Hours and what we are going to release in our next album. The song is told from two perspectives. The first is from the place of someone who’s depressed, low, and anxious. Then it switches to the outside perspective of wanting to help that person because you understand what they’ve been through from your own experience.”
This is a subject that is very prevalent in the music industry at the moment and we think it’s great to see more and more bands addressing the subject of mental health through their own experiences. This is a very brave thing to do as it is not an easy feat to admit that you have suffered with mental health issues and we commend Fahran for sharing their personal experiences through their music.
