“Seasons’ is a song written about battling mental illness. The chorus ‘Seasons cry for no one’ is a play on words referencing seasonal depression directly, but the song is meant to represent an internal struggle with one’s demons.” – Brendan Maier (Chout)

Farewell To 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. The band revisits that era with big rock riffs, big choruses and big anthems for a new generation of mainstream rockers.

With their first full-length album, New Blood co-produced with Brett Hestla (Dark New Day & Creed), the group generated an incredible three singles on Sirius XM’s Octane channel, an unheard-of feat for an unknown band. This also landed 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. Due to this enormous amount of support, the track “Diamonds” reached a most impressive 1 million streams on Spotify.

Inspired by the recording process of their most recent EP Legacy the band started writing and recording relentlessly, 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.

Their latest album Voices released by Pavement Entertainment and produced by Damien Starkey (Puddle is Mudd, Burn Season) has further solidified the band’s position in the rock community.

Farewell to Fear have been supporting the Voices album on tour with Fozzy, Jared James Nichols and Deadset Society in Canada and with Like a Storm and Palisades in the US.

The first single off the album “Underneath My Skin” broke the top 30 position on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Indicator Charts.

Undeniably, Farewell to Fear has a full rock assault planned for 2019!”

Band: Mike Craig – Vocals Jimmy Adams – Drums Tony “Mojo” Lucero – Guitars Jeremy Sevens – Bass Dirk Mercer – Guitar

Celeb Car Crash Releases “Enemy’s Desire” Music Video

Alternative Rock band Celeb Car Crash have released the official music video for their track “Enemy’s Desire” from their critically acclaimed new album People Are The Best Show. The “Enemy’s Desire” video is based on the most classical archetypes, but is still impactful: a starter, a couple, a “witness”, and a linear path dealing with life, encounters, obstacles, and supernatural events which hinder the main characters, hope, and the end. The video was made in Italy with the typical xenophilic taste the band has developed since their musical beginning.

Directed by Filippo Cinotti and Nicola Briganti, the opening scene was shot with the aid of a drone, while all the rest in unique sequence shots. A single take, filmed at dawn on November 2nd “All Souls’ Day”, was completed in slow motion and a few digital effects were added in post-production. Classe’s Lido, the seaside, and its pine grove are the setting to this video.

People Are The Best Show can be described as a powerful mix of Rock, Grunge and Alternative. Inside the twelve songs that make up the album, you can hear influences from such bands as Foo FightersKings of LeonSoundgardenMetallica, and Alice in Chains. The album was recorded and mixed with the approach used by the greatest Rock bands during the ‘90s, focusing on feeling and groove rather than artificial perfection characterizing the modern productions. The album includes “Because I’m Sad”, produced and recorded at The Red Bull Studios in London in 2015, after the band won The Italian Red Bull Contest with more than 1700 band entered. Along with the recording of the single, Celeb Car Crash had the chance to play a mini tour in support of Lacuna Coil; using as a stage the almighty Red Bull Tour Bus.

The album artwork was created by Carlo Alberto, in collaboration with the great Chinese artist Maleonn, who gave the band one of his most representative images. Maleonn is one of the most influential visual artists working in China today, with his work being seen in solo exhibitions in over thirty countries throughout the world, including France, Britain, Italy and Germany, attracting the attention of international media including The Guardian, Daily Mail, and The BBC.
