Farewell will premiere their first video, â€œFirst One On the Blog,â€ off of their Epitaph debut Isnâ€™t This Supposed to be Fun!? via Myspace Video on October 10th. Directed by the Endeavor Media Group (Bayside, Silverstein, Comeback Kid), the video perfectly showcases both the bandâ€™s high energy brand of powerpop and rollicking sense of fun, as we follow Marshall, Wil and the rest of the guys to school one day.
Filmed at Slippery Rock University, a frighteningly idyllic institution just outside of Pittsburgh, PA, â€œFirst One On the Blogâ€ pokes fun at the establishments that co-opt youth culture and turn kids into clones with classes like â€œBlogging 101,â€ where the finer points of pimping a social networking page are taught. With just a slip of something interesting into the principalâ€™s coffee, Farewell take over the school, disruption replaces discipline and rock n roll hilarity ensues.
Farewellâ€™s Epitaph debut Isnâ€™t This Supposed to be Fun!? has been enthusiastically received by fans and critics alike. AbsolutePunk.net raves, â€œIsnâ€™t This Supposed to be Fun!? does a wonderful job of twisting rock, pop and synth together to make for a very enjoyable listen.â€ Farewellâ€™s lead singer Marshall Davis states, â€œwe want to bring that care-free feeling back to music and get everyone to uncross their arms and sing along.â€ And the â€œFirst One On the Blogâ€ video does just that. Called â€œridiculously catchyâ€ by Emotional Punk, â€œFirst One On the Blogâ€ will cure any back to school blues.
Farewell depart on Oct 12th on a two week tour of the south and east coast.
