For All I Am
Farewell, My Love
Rock n’ Roll should be larger than life. Rock stars are superheroes who take the stage propelled by a pomp and circumstance rivaling the royalty of old. They adopt fantastical personas that enrapture an audience, transporting participants away from their every day struggles and problems into a world of freedom and possibility.
Farewell, My Love has arrived carrying the torch aloft for a new generation hungry for the power, energy and magnetic combustibility inherent in the best rock. The five young men of Farewell, My Love have come together to share their individual hardships, triumphs and passions through a collective vehicle. They’ve taken the sum total of the lives they’ve lived thus far and fashioned them into a unique weapon to hand over to their audiences for the mutual uplifting of all involved.
The conceptual artistry and theatricality of My Chemical Romance, the reckless danger and skillful musicianship of Avenged Sevenfold, the dark mystique and anthem-inducing sing-alongs of AFI and the brash experimentalism and attitude of 30 Seconds to Mars are all components that have a home in the Farewell, My Love manuscript. With forceful determination and wonderfully soaring grandiosity, Farewell, My Love put a unique spin on theatrical hard rock with utmost dedication.
Farewell, My Love first connected with their rabid audience, who they devotedly refer to as their “Lovers,” with 2011’s A Dance You Won’t Forget EP. The short but incredible record and its subsequent lush, story-driven video for the anthem-in-the-making “Portraits” garnered the attention of like-minded supporters in short order.
Standby Records was proud to ink a deal with the band and put them into Cleveland, Ohio’s Studio D Productions with producer Don Debiase, who has worked with Modern Day Escape, Beneath the Sky and For All Those Sleeping. The resulting debut full-length is the type of album that is sure to skyrocket the young quintet.
Ryan Howell’s intense and diverse vocals sit atop the heavy, precise and melodic guitar work of Röbby Creasey and Logan Thayer, all ably backed by the percussive but tasteful rhythm section of bassist Charlee Conley and drummer Chad Kowal. Additional instrumentation, including string arrangements and bells, bolster the band’s guitar-driven rock, adding to the artistic atmosphere on display throughout.
Sylar is a metalcore band from Queens, NY formed in 2011. They released their debut EP Cutting the Ties digitally via iTunes on November 1, 2011. Lead vocalist Jay Panesso has been selling merch for Emmure since 2011. The band is currently finishing up their second EP produced by Caleb Shomo of Attack Attack!.
Chomp Chomp Attack
Chomp Chomp Attack is a Post-Hardcore/Rock band from Montreal, Canada. Formed in 2010, the group has set out to spread the message of believing in yourself and in your dreams. They have made an impact to their fans ;MONSTERS, around the world with their EP “How Do You Like Me Now” released in the summer of 2012.
Kissing Candice started as a mere vision. Ex-Dr. Acula keyboardist and sample mastermind, Joey Simpson, was looking to start a project that would combine metal, hardcore, industrial and electronic music in a unique and cinematic fashion. Taking on the role of frontman, Joey hit the studio with producer Jeremy Comitas to record the debut EP, Murder. While giving listeners a taste of what to expect from the band, Joey soon realized that it was time to put together a full lineup.
After recruiting Tommy Sciro (guitar), Marco Caruso (drums) and Mike Grippo (bass),Walter Dicristina(Guitar) the band began to fine-tune their songs for live performances. Soon, this Long Island based five-piece had a sizeable buzz growing online, with followers and fans accumulating on various social networks. Quickly attracting listeners on a daily basis, Kissing Candice is already proving that their brand is being eagerly welcomed to the scene.
With the new members of the band contributing to the writing process, future material will undoubtedly be the most vicious and addicting output from the band thus far. Keep a close eye on Kissing Candice, as their blood, guts and gore-filled tunes infect the masses during the remainder of 2012 and beyond.
