Jacksonville, Florida’s FAREWELL TO FEAR has released its video for the band’s new single “Brainwashed,” out now via Crusader Records.
The band features Mike Craig – vocals; Tommy Gibbons – guitars & vocals; Jimmy Adams – drums; Jeremy Sevens – bass guitar; and Bill Staley – guitars & vocals.
Farewell to Fear was born out of the huge black hole that mainstream rock radio left during the absence of super rock stars like Metallica, Alice in Chains and Soundgarden. The band revisits an era with big rock riffs, bigger choruses and huge anthems for a new generation of rockers.
Farewell to Fear’s first full-length album, New Blood, produced by Brett Hestla (Creed, Dark New Day), generated an incredible three singles on Sirius XM’s Octane channel, a rare feat for an unknown band. The band also reached #1 on Amazon’s Hot New Rock Singles chart and #8 on iTunes Rock chart. Farewell to Fear’s debut album also earned the band 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. That track, “Diamonds,” recently eclipsed 2.4 million streams on Spotify.
Inspired by the overwhelming success of New Blood, Farewell To Fear released its Legacy EP, ultimately allowing the members 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.
Shortly following Legacy, the band released Voices. It was produced by Damien Starkey (Burn Season & Puddle of Mudd) and elevated the bands’ sound. The single, ”Underneath my Skin,” landed at #29 on the Billboard Rock Indicator Charts. The band wasted no time spreading its new sound with the masses at various rock festivals, touring with artists such as Fozzy, Like A Storm, Palisades and Flaw throughout North America and Canada, including joining Chris Jericho/Fozzy and friends performing on the ‘Rockin and Wrestling Rager at Sea’ Cruise.
Staying true to form, Farewell to Fear immediately went back into the studio amidst the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic to release the single of ”I Won’t Be Your Tragedy,” which quickly shot to #21 on the Billboard Rock Indicator Chart and eclipsed over 100K streams on Spotify in three months.
Farewell to Fear is poised for an explosive 2022 and has already been invited to perform at the Rebel Rock Festival in Orlando, with Five Finger Death Punch, Limp Bizkit, I Prevail, Sevendust, among others.
