Kicking off our premiere series, we are pleased to join forces with Farewell to Fear for the release of their new lyric video for their latest single “Thorn,” a real throwback into the heydays of Alternative and Grunge music of the 90s and early 00s, filled with powerful guitar riffs and angsty vocals that reminds us to Alice of Chains and Alter Bridge.
About the song, the band comments “We are stoked about the new song. We always like to write songs that we are passionate about, and this one hits hard! It straight up kicks you in the gut right from the beginning. Nothing great in life comes easy and you really have to have a tough as nails mindset and be constantly in motion forcing people to stand up and take notice! “
Farewell to Fear was born out of the huge black hole that mainstream rock radio left during the absence of super rock stars like Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, and Soundgarden. The band revisits that era with big rock riffs, big choruses, and big anthems for a new generation of mainstream rockers.
With their first full-length album, New Blood, co-produced with Brett Hestla (Dark New Day & Creed), the group generated an incredible three singles on Sirius XM’s Octane channel, an unheard of feat for an unknown band. This also landed them at #1 on Amazon’s Hot New Rock Singles chart and #8 on iTunes Rock chart. Their debut also earned them direct support from Howard Stern, including the rarest of moments on Stern’s show, airing an entire song as opposed to the normal 20-second snippet he usually shares. Due to this enormous amount of support, the track “Diamonds” surpassed a most impressive 1 million streams on Spotify.
Inspired by the recording process of their EP, Legacy, the band started writing and recording relentlessly, ultimately allowing them to seamlessly merge their skills and styles together to create heavy rock songs that deliver a strong punch to the gut while staying melodic and delivering impactful lyrics, hitting all ranges and octaves.
Their latest album, Voices, launched May 18, 2018, via Pavement Entertainment. It was produced by Damien Starkey (Burn Season & Puddle of Mudd), which has elevated the band’s sound to a new level. “To listen to Voices is to take a deep dark emotional rollercoaster ride leaving you wanting more,” says vocalist Mike Craig. “Voices draws from anthemic songs of the past while embracing the uncertain chaos around us. Expect no stone unturned with this album!”
