Fathom Farewell is melodic metalcore hailing from New England, USA. They have a fourth EP coming out this year, the much anticipated “Kraken” and they are introducing it with the crushing single “Eulogy”. The band shares some insight into what is, instrumentally, the heaviest song they have ever written:

“Lyrically this song is entirely about what can happen when someone with mental health issues goes far too long without getting help.  The first verse describes desperate cries for help dampened by a great deal of self doubt and anxiety.  The second verse delves into the aggression and sadness that can develop and the third and final verse (breakdown) ultimately delves into the deterioration of the person due to a lack of assistance.”

The EP “Kraken”is a series of waves from start to finish varying in intensity, grit and feel from song to song, with the intention of leaving the listener feeling as though the mythological ocean beast has taken them on a wild and terrifying ride through their emotions toward a place of inner reflection and peace.  

To the band, the name Fathom Farewell means either a watery grave or contemplating goodbye. The content of the songs is in many ways metaphorical so this name is an ironic description of the mind drifting to the place where it allows them to believe that giving up is acceptable when in their hearts they know it isn’t.

Over the years, Fathom Farewell has definitely made a name for themselves having shared the stage with bands such as Sevendust, Devil Wears Prada, AFI and Hatebreed and played at festivals including Van’s Warped Tour and New England Metal and Hardcore Fest.

This precise blend of melody and heavy is suitable for all metalcore fans, especially those with an interest in Northlane, Killswitch Engage, and August Burns Red.

The lyric video for “Eulogy” can watched and heard via its premiere on NewFuryMedia HERE.

“Kraken” will be out on October 22, 2021.

Fathom Farewell brings depth to the rock/metal genre beyond the confines of its articulate instrumentation and vocal presence. Addressing topics from humanity and its relationships to the grave consequences human nature causes our world, frontman Alex Cohen demands through his delivery that each listener lend a close ear and a willingness toward self-reflection.  This fiery passion results in a refined rock act with the potential to be the voice of change, but with the live thrill and precision of a modern heavy metal act. In conjunction with exceptional work ethic and persistence, it’s no wonder the band has swiftly made a name for itself throughout New England, having earned the opportunities to support Sevendust’s 20th-anniversary tour, along with area dates with Issues, The Devil Wears Prada, Volumes, I Prevail, Currents, and many more.  The band has also performed four times at the Vans Warped Tour in MA since forming in 2014, three times at New England Metal and Hardcore Festival, and made appearances at Rock and Shock Festival. Following the release of the 2019 “Consume The Earth” EP, the band has accrued over 100k streams across Spotify and Apple Music.  Bolstered by recent additions to the newly completed lineup and with upcoming new material produced by Chris Piquette (Trophy Wives/Riviera), with assistance from Extreme Management Group, Fathom Farewell aims to support this release with vigorous touring and marketing in hopes of carrying awareness of its message to the rest of its home country and eventually to the world, as all of “this planet is our home”.

Now with three EPs under their belt over four years “Consume The Earth” (2019), “Decomposition” (2017), Drowning Limits (2015), the band is ready to present their next EP entitled “Kraken” on October 22nd, 2021 via Blood Blast Distribution.
