“The gloves came off when we started writing Polarity, no rules, no formula. We wrote what we felt and what moved us in the moment. Lyrically, the album draws on many emotions and feelings that we all have shared over the last crazy few years, and as true to form, a message of positivity and hope in the darkest of times,” declared the band.

Born out of the huge black hole that mainstream rock radio left during the absence of super rock stars like MetallicaAlice in Chains and Soundgarden, the band revisits an era with big rock riffs, big choruses and huge anthems for a new generation of rockers.

Musically the band revisits an era with big rock riffs, bigger choruses and huge anthems for a new generation of rockers. Their first full-length album New Blood, produced by Brett Hestla (CreedDark New Day), generated three singles on Sirius XM’s Octane channel, a rare 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 album also earned them direct support from Howard Stern, including the rarest of moments on Stern’s show…Aairing 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 BloodFarewell To Fear released their Legacy EP, ultimately allowing them to 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. 

Farewell to Fear is poised for an explosive 2022, the band has signed with Golden Robot Records already been invited to perform at the Rebel Rock Festival in Orlando, USA, with Five Finger Death PunchLimp BizkitI Prevail, Sevendust and many more.

Previously the band has released the singles ‘If Tomorrow Never Comes‘, ‘Played Again’ and ‘Falling‘ and you can check out the videos available to them right here at RAMzine.

‘If Tomorrow Never Comes’ is a song that is said to hit home for all of us at one time or another.  As we reflect back on our lives, we contemplate the choices we have made, the chances we didn’t take and the pain of regret. This hard-hitting anthem is a huge wake up call, we only have one life to live, let’s make it count! You can order it here. 

‘Played Again’ takes the angst and experience of feeling used and channels it into a fist pumping anthem. Slashing guitar riffs compounded with Mike Craig’s Pantera-esque vocals punish the listener. The single is available here.

Falling‘ touches on the downward spiral of depression and shows the perspective of a new generation trying to make sense of it all.  Everyone falls victim to darkness and depression; ‘Falling’ delivers the message that you are not alone and this feeling won’t last forever.The track features a powerful vocal melody, heavy riffs and duelling guitar harmonies on top of a thundering rhythm section with a slamming groove and massive production. ‘Falling’ is available here.

Their previous single to that, ‘Brainwashed’ has lyrics that are intended to have a deep meaning that should resonate with listeners. The song features heavy grinding guitars and a thundering rhythm section, coupled with haunting spine-tingling vocal melodies.  

You can order ‘Brainwashed’ here and watch the video for that song here too.
