Farewell 2 Fear’s massively successful cover of Rihanna’s “Diamonds” now has an official music video, which premiered this week exclusively on FUSE. Click here to check it out: http://on.fuse.tv/ZHG9qa. The band’s version of the song has sold over 22,000 singles on iTunes, and their lyric video has amassed over 200,000 views on YouTube since its release (over 15k in the first 24 hours). Additionally, it reached #1 on the Hot New Rock Singles chart on Amazon, broke into the Top 10 Rock Singles on iTunes, and is their second track in as many months to reach Top 5 status on SiriusXM’s Octane, with additional love from Howard Stern, who played the song on his show.
Farewell 2 Fear released their debut full-length album New Blood on May 28 on Silent Majority Group (in conjunction with ADA Label Services). The album was the follow-up to their EP that spawned their hit single “Fire,” which debuted at #1 on SiriusXM’s Octane and landed at #8 on the listener generated “Big-Uns” countdown shortly after. Farewell 2 Fear will be supporting numerous mainstream rock acts this Summer, including Sevendust and Saving Abel. Farewell 2 Fear appeared at Jacksonville’s “Welcome to Rockville” festival in April with Alice in Chains and Limp Bizkit.
Based in New Orleans, Farewell 2 Fear signed to Silent Majority Group last summer, which is home to Tantric, Candlebox, Saving Abel and Framing Hanley. Under the A&R direction of Jeff Hanson, the band co-wrote and produced New Blood with Brett Hestla (Dark New Day/Creed). The album brings big rock riffs, big choruses and big anthems to mainstream rock radio.
Farewell 2 Fear is Mike Craig (lead vocals), Bob Bearden (lead guitar, vocals), Mojo (guitar, keys & vocals), Jeremy Sevens (bass) and Jimmy Adams (drums).
