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. Farewell To Fear revisits that era with big rock riffs, big choruses and big anthems for a new generation of rockers. With their 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, an unheard-of feat for an unknown band as well as landing 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. That track, “Diamonds” is recently eclipsed 2.8 million streams on Spotify.
Inspired by the overwhelming success of NEW BLOOD, F2F released the LEGACY EP, 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.
Shortly following the LEGACY, F2F joined forces with Pavement Entertainment to release the VOICES album. Voices was produced by Damien Starkey (Burn Season & Puddle of Mudd) and elevated the bands sound. "To listen to Voices is to take a deep dark emotional rollercoaster ride leaving you wanting more.” "Voices draws from anthemic songs of the past while embracing the uncertain chaos around us.” Expect no stone unturned with the album!” The highly anticipated single “Underneath my Skin” landed at #29 on the Billboard Rock indicator Charts. "Underneath my Skin", sends a powerful sucker punch with its anthem of love and obsession. It’s an emotional gut wrenching song that will inspire the devil within.
The band wasted no time spreading the new sound with the masses at various rock festivals, touring with 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, F2F immediately went back into the studio amidst the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic to release the ever timely single “I wont be your tragedy” that quickly shot up to #21 on the Billboard Rock Indicator Chart as well as eclipsed over 100K streams on Spotify in 3 months. Farewell to Fear is poised for an explosive 2021 and has already been invited to perform at the REBEL ROCK FESTIVAL in ORLANDO w/ FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, LIMP BIZKIT, I PREVAIL, SEVENDUST and many more...
Farewell to Fear has just recently signed to international powerhouse label Golden Robot Records for its new album.
