Farewell 2 Fear (F2F) 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 Sound Garden. 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. They have already played to over 25,000 fans in 2012 and boast a mailing list of over 200,000 fans.
In late summer 2012, the band met former Creed, Sevendust and Paramore Manager, Jeff Hanson. F2F was immediately signed to Hanson’s ADA promoted and distributed label, Silent Majority Group. SMG is home to Tantric, Candlebox and Framing Hanely. Under the A&R direction of Hanson the band co-wrote and produced their album, New Blood with Brett Hestla (Dark New Day/Creed).
Farewell 2 Fear’s first singles from their LP, “Fire” and “Diamonds” debuted on SiriusXM Octane’s playlist, both landed on the listener generated “Big-Uns” Countdown! Diamonds also landed at #1 on Amazon’s hot new rock singles and #8 on ITunes rock singles charts.
Farewell 2 Fear kicked off 2013 off big with anticipated sold-out CD release shows in Orlando, Jacksonville and select Sevendust tour dates!
