For Against Biography
After recording Coalesced, Hinrichs moved from Nebraska to Virginia. For two years the band's status was uncertain, but in August 2004 For Against reformed with original guitarist Harry Dingman, coinciding with the Words On Music re-release of Echelons (its first release on CD). In September 2005 Words On Music reissued December, adding two rare videos to the CD.
In March 2007 For Against played two shows in Athens, Greece and in November 2007 the band returned to Europe to play the Tanned Tin Festival in Spain with new drummer Nick Buller. In September 2007 Words On Music reissued In The Marshes, released for the first time on CD. Two bonus tracks were included on the release.
In March 2008 For Against toured Italy for the first time. In April 2008, Words On Music released For Against's 7th album, Shade Side Sunny Side. The album is a landmark record for the band, boasting the darkest and loudest For Against material to date. The album also marks original For Against guitarist Harry Dingman's first recordings with the band since 1988's classic December album. Track listing: Glamour, Underestimate, Why Are You So Angry?, Aftertaste, Friendly Fires, Game Over, Spirit Lake, Quiet Please, Irresistible. (Friendly Fires is a cover version of the song written by Factory Records' Section 25, from their debut album Always Now).
