Standby Records is proud to announce the addition of Phoenix-based theatrical rock quartet, Farewell, My Love, to the label’s growing “Rock N’ Roll 2.0” roster. Together Farewell, My Love and Standby Records will team up to release the band’s debut full-length record later this year.
“For the past five months we had been in talks with Neil Sheehan, owner of Standby Records, about the band and have developed a great repertoire with him,” said front man Caleb Harbin. “He really understood the direction we wanted take our music, and we all agreed this was a perfect match.”
Farewell, My Love will head to Cleveland, Ohio’s, Studio D Productions, this spring to begin tracking its debut record with producer, Don Debiase (Modern Day Escape, Beneath The Sky, For All Those Sleeping), and the band is more than eager to begin the next chapter of its career.
“We have been writing and demoing constantly for the past couple of months,” added guitarist, Robby Creasey. “The process has been non-stop, aside from the week we spent filming our first music video for ‘Portraits,’ off our EP. We brought a lot of ideas to the table and are anxious to show the world what we are all about.”
As Farewell, My Love gears up to enter the studio, the band is pleased to present the aforementioned music video for “Portraits,” taken from the self-produced EP, ‘A Dance You Won’t Forget.’ The video was filmed in Flagstaff, AZ with directors, Brent Henderson and Clayton Lumley, and it is now streaming on the band’s official YouTube page at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KvU1Y-iTVN4.
“Instead of filming a bunch of live scenes for the video, we wanted to portray the concept of the song through a sequence of dreams,” commented drummer, ChadK.
‘A Dance You Won’t Forget’ released in late 2011 and helped the band to quickly gain a loyal local fan base. From playing as opening acts, to performing before sold-out crowds, Farewell, My Love has continuously sought to create a world where art, not hype, transcends the entire performance both musically and visually.
“The first EP was really an outlet for us to voice inspiration to those that felt misguided or lost. Our LOVERS, are the reason we’re here, and we aim to help them know they can be anything they dream,” said ChadK.
“We faced a lot of skepticism early on, but we pressed on, and we want our fans to do the same,” added bassist, Gary Grant.
