And So I Watch You From Afar are a four-piece rock band from Belfast, Northern Ireland. The band consists of Rory Friers and Niall Kennedy on guitar, Johnny Adger on bass and Chris Wee on drums. They wrote and released two albums and two EPs with former member Tony Wright who now performs under the pseudonym VerseChorusVerse. They write largely instrumental music with group vocals in parts; Friers writes a lot of the music, but they arrange and contribute to these songs in the rehearsal room as a three-piece to make them into finished songs. They are signed to Richter Collective, and in October 2011 the band announced a deal in North America with management and record label Sargent House, who released Gangs on November 8, 2011.
Their self-titled debut album was named the 6th best album of 2009 by Rock Sound.More is coming
