The For Carnation are a post-rock band led by Brian McMahan, the group's only constant member. The roots of the band began when McMahan reunited with his ex-[a=Slint] bandmates David Pajo and Britt Walford in an attempt to resurrect their old group. The reunion didn't work out, but McMahan and Pajo eventually recruited some other musicians and The For Carnation was born. The band released an EP, 1995's "Fight Songs", and an LP, 1996" Marshamallows", on [l=Matador] Records. Both records were combined into one release, "Promised Works", in 1997 by Italy's [l=Runt] imprint. McMahan and company then jumped to [l=Touch And Go] for their second LP, a self-titled affair released in 2000. In 2007, Touch and Go reissued "Promised Works".
