Farewell Fighter, the Nashville based pop-rock quartet, is pleased to announce the release of their album, Challenges, which will be released via Easy Killer Records on August 6th, 2013.
Most individuals would think twice before giving up all their physical belongings, cutting ties and risking homelessness and starvation. In 2011, Farewell Fighter did just that. After topping Alternative Press Magazine's Top Unsigned Bands list in 2010, the band decided to take things to the next level. The band scheduled show after show on self-booked, self-funded tours across America; ultimately spending the next twelve months on the road, playing 150+ shows in more than forty states and selling more than 6,000 copies of their self-released EP entitled The Way We Learn.
In 2012, the pop-rockers settled down to write and record a full-length record. While most bands in their genre struggle to create honest and catchy songs, Farewell Fighter do it track by track -- and they've managed to stay humble doing it. Giving up everything you have for the good of a dream has a way of putting the world into perspective for a young artist.
"This record is so important to us. Each song tells a different story about how hard it can be growing up in a world where there's so much pressure to 'be something' or to figure out where you belong. Not everyone figures that out right away. Our hope is that these songs can help someone out there feel a little more at ease about who they are and what it means to be happy in spite of life's challenges."
