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.
I sing my broken little heart out wherever I can. I keep my guitar on my back and my life in my suitcase and follow my dream wherever it takes me.
I love Shakespeare and Poe and Wilde and Thoreau. I'm a poet and a writer, a lover and a fighter.
I love the people that love me, they're the reason when I can't find any other one to exist. I hate how ugly the world can be and I love animals so much I don't eat them.
I want to be remembered, I want the world to know my voice and brain. I want to make people feel better and not worse.
My name is Haley Rose and I won't stop until the world is mine. Probably even then. ♥
Corpse is a decomposer, feeding off of the dead, while clutching the bodies who subject themselves to an anesthetic for the mind. A chance to unleash the horror that is kept inside, or let it slowly subside. Corpse started making music as a solo artist in October of 2011, to satisfy his love for music, and everything horror-related. He is originally from Omaha, NE, but currently resides in Des Moines, IA. He produces his own beats, writes his own lyrics, records his own songs, and designs all of his artwork. His unique blend of horror-based beats, along with cut-throat vocals, gives his audience the shock they were needing.
