We recently had the chance to speak with American rock band Farewell, My Love. They are embarking on a full US tour this May – Tours from the Crypt, which includes a stop in NYC, a site often skipped in favor of our neighbor across the water, New Jersey. Supporting acts include Famous Last Words, Sycamour, and It Lives It Breathes.
It will be the first time the east coast will be seeing Farewell, My Love with their new and re-arranged lineup, which includes Chad Kowal on vocals, Röbby Creasey on guitar, Charlee Conley on bass, and newest member London Mckuffey also on guitar.
We were able to ask vocalist Chad a few questions about the new tour and what the west coast outfit thinks of the east coast, specifically, NYC:
Q: Please tell me a little bit about your upcoming tour? What are you looking forward to the most on this trip? The least?
Chad: This will be our 4th or 5th full US tour. I’m looking forward to connecting with our fans again at each date & hanging out with them.
Q: Once Farewell, My Love swings by this way (to NYC), what fun things are you planning on doing once you’re in our neck of the woods?
Chad: We’ve explored Times Square & checked out one of our favorite clothing stores Trash & Vaudeville. So pretty much just trying new things this time around.
Q: What do you like best about your NY fans, and how do they differ from fans anywhere else?
Chad: We played a show once at Webster Hall & had a record breaking amount of crowd surfers during our set. I look forward to playing there again.
Q: The band just changed the lineup a bit, and the fans have been super supportive on social media. Usually when a lineup changes, fans are upset. Why do you think the reception of London was so welcoming?
Chad: He’s an awesome person & very talented & I think the fans can see that.
See them at the NYC date at Hashtag Bar on June 16, just a short walk from mass transit on Staten Island. Alternatively, there is a show at Gamechanger World in Howell, NJ the next day- June 17th.
