The Fray is an American rock band formed in Denver, Colorado, in 2002. They are regarded as one of the best rock bands of all time. Their most popular song is "How to save a life." This track achieved multi-platinum success in Australia, Canada, Italy, and the United Kingdom, and became a worldwide hit. It also earned the Fray a nomination for Best Rock Performance at the 2007 Grammy Awards.
Aside from the band's signature songs, the Fray has released a great many other hit songs. Some of my favorites include "Heaven Forbid," "Hundred," and "She Is." These songs are a mix of mellow piano led instrumentation and a punchy, alt-rock sound.
Though it is not a highlight of their discography, Vienna is an upbeat, punchy track with affirming electric guitars and a strong drum beat. This song is about a break up. In the chorus, "Maybe in five or ten years, maybe in twenty, it might be true," the Fray seems to be asking for peace.
The Fray released their fourth studio album Helios in February 2014. The album was released by the band as a part of their Greatest Hits album Through the Years: Best of the Fray. Since then, they have continued to release new music. Earlier this year, they performed at the 2014 Rock on the Range Festival. As for the lyrics of their songs, the band members acknowledge contributions from all members. But it's true that the band was named after a random choice.
