Not to be confused with the storyline following ''ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman''.

* TheyAlsoDid - Matt has an acoustic solo project called "The Secret Show" who released an album "Impressionist Road Map To The West" in 2007 and a follow up EP in 2015. He gave these releases very little promotion so that fans would discover them in their own time.

* ImportantHaircut - around the time the band had released 'History' Matt had shaved his then iconic emo fringe off, opting for a buzzcut, around the same period the band's output strayed away from the emo/post hardcore sound and moved to more melodic rock such as the 'Tales Don't Tell Themselves' album.

** In the period after Matthew Evans left until about somewhere during the Hours album cycle Matt screamed on some of the band's output such as 'You Want Romance?', '10 Scene Points To The Winner' and various songs live and a few demos on Hours such as 'Roses For The Dead' and 'Tghe End of Nothing'.


Added DiffLines:

* WhatCouldHaveBeen - Hours was originally planned to be heavier with Matt using his MetalScream on 'The End of Nothing' alongside Ryan's screamed vocals and the outro to 'Roses For The Dead'.

** In their early years, the members of IronMaiden became fans of the band, and invited them to tour with them. Magazines put two and two together and claimed Maiden were FFAF's idols, which was intended to give them more credibility amongst metal fans, who were notoriously hostile to emo bands at the time. FFAF certainly got treated badly when supporting them, and vowed never to do so again. In fact, Matt noted in a 2015 interview for the Holy Roar Podcast that he wasn't a fan of Maiden at all, and actually got in trouble with their manager Rod Smallwood for announcing that FFAF's songs were about orcs and goblins (thus making fun of Maiden, and showing a [presumably intentional] lack of understanding of their lyrics).

* LyricalDissonance - The first half of the song "Welcome Home Armageddon" is probably the most upbeat-sounding song about the apocalypse this side of {{REM}} The second part is [[SubduedSection much more somber]].

**** The band have done acoustic versions of at least 16 songs across various sessions and releases. When the song requires screaming, it is usually sung instead. Of particular note is The Art Of American Football (Tiscali Acoustic Session), which was rearranged so differently as an acoustic that it could almost be a different song. This version can most easily be found on the second disc of Your History Is Mine.
