Farewell 2 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. Farewell 2 Fear revisits that era with big rock riffs, big choruses and big anthems for a new generation of mainstream rockers. The band has members in New Orleans, Jacksonville and Lincoln.
Launched in 2010, Farewell 2 Fear was formed out of a passion for music with a message. F2F music at the core is that of "empowerment" and endless possibilities. The meaning behind the name: fear impedes all areas of our lives', the day you say "Farewell 2 Fear" is the day you realize that you are free from any obstacle holding you back from living the life you were meant to live. Couple that message in with talented vocals, awesome writing, killer guitars, bass and drums and you have F2F.
In late summer 2012 the band met former Creed, Sevendust, and Paramore manager, Jeff Hanson. F2F was immediately singed to Hanson's ADA-promoted and distributed label, Silent Majority Group. SMG is home to Tantric, Candlebox, Saving Abel, and Framing Hanley. Under the A&R direction of Hanson, the band co-wrote and produced the album New Blood with Brett Hestla (Dark New Day/Creed).
Farewell 2 Fear's first single from the LP was exclusively released to Sirius/XM's Octane and debuted at #1 on their playlist and peaked at #8 on the listener-generated "Big-Uns" countdown! The band launched a lyric video on YouTube for their cover version of Rhianna's "Diamonds" in January, and generated over 50,000 views in the first four weeks.
