Chris Leaves Farewell

Posted by: Joe DeAndrea (07/25/08)
Keyboardist Chris Lee has left Farewell.
Message from the BandWe have so many things going on right now, I'm not sure where to begin... I guess I'll start with the bad news first. If you were at any of the Warped Tour dates we played in Canada or the last one in Boston you probably heard that our keyboardist Chris has left the band. He has been a friend and band-member since the early days and we are sad to see him go, but we ask that you have trust in the fact that this is best for both Chris and Farewell. All I can say is that he has different priorities now then when we started, so he's left in pursuit of romantic and monetary stability. With that said, I WANT TO REASSURE YOU ALL THAT WE ARE NOT LOSING ANY STEAM DUE TO THIS. If anything, it has opened us up to more possibilities, cause a person whose heart isn't in the music is no good to a band.

Now for the classified section....

We're looking for a new keyboard player/back-up vocalist! You MUST fill all these requirements to be considered for this spot:

1. You must be able to sing well (preferably higher than any backup vocals
you hear on our record)
2. You must be able to play piano AND synth
3. You must be willing and financially able to travel to NC for auditions
in August
4. You must have some touring experience (the more the better)
5. You must be a team player. Our band is a family.

BONUS POINTS:

1. An up-to-date passport for international touring SOON
2. Your own equipment

ONLY SERIOUS INQUIRIES PLEASE! (don't waste our time or your own) send an email to FarewellAuditions@gmail.com with your name, phone number, location, and any other facts/info you'd like to share (like your myspace link, previous band(s), photos, etc.. All of these things make it easier on us to see who you are and what you can do.)


Now for the GOOD NEWS......... We just got back from five weeks on the Vans Warped Tour and have begun shooting a music video for our song "Eighty-Eights". There is going to be tons of crazy animation and cool stuff involved, so get pumped! We also have plans to enter the studio to record a cover song that will be released around the same time as the video! Be sure to stay tuned to our myspace page for any updates. Thanks for all the continued support! Seriously, you guys mean the world to us-

-Marshall

I met these guys at Warped last week and they were one of the nicest bands I've met... Real down to Earth guys. Hopefully, their search for a new keyboardist goes well because I heard certain rumors about fall touring?

absolutely love this band. hopefully they can sort out a replacement quick. and I know the situtation with chris was far from ideal for them, but the acoustic set in toronto was actually pretty fun.
