Far From Alaska Are Set to Release New Album ‘Unlikely’


  1. not likely to happen, be done, or be true; improbable:

This is the best adjective to describe the band Far Form Alaska. No one could suspect that from Natal, Rio Grande Do Norte state, Brazil, a city known for it’s tropical beaches with white sand and warm sea would put together a rock band with queer sound with heavy riffs, female vocals and lyrics in English, once were very unlikely to succeed where they came from, but today they are one of the main bands in Brazil.

Far From Alaska is a five-piece band based in Brazil and getting ready to release their second album ‘Unlikely‘ due to drop on the 25th August 2017.


Unlikely‘ is the follow up to Far From Alaska’s debut album ‘modeHuman named in Rolling Stone’s Top Ten albums of 2014.

Recently Far From Alaska performed on the main stage of Download Festival in France alongside the likes of Green Day and Blink 182.

Following their performance, at Download the band were hailed by Kerrang magazine for their energetic live performance and captivating sound.

The bands single ‘Cobra ‘ is a thrilling percussion-soaked track with a relentless but playful quality. Far From Alaska’s sound is both grandiose and rollicking and I can’t get enough of them.
