With his six-track debut EP 'Health' due for release on the 11th March, Farewell JR has today unveiled a short film for one of the EP's stand-out tracks, 'Night Wolves'. Filmed and directed by Brendan Canty and Conal Thomson of Feel Good Lost, the video was shot as a tribute to friends of the directors who have recently lost their fathers.
Speaking of this concept behind the video, Brendan Canty said: "I was hugely inspired by the incredible strength and bravery [of my friends] to deal with such a difficult situation at such a young age and their courage to rise from it with such reprise and grace was a massive inspiration to me. I have had some recent experiences with alzheimer's in my family so the story of the video was a mixture of my experiences and emotions and what I imagined theirs to be".
Having recently supported Daughter at the Button Factory in Dublin, Farewell JR will head out on tour with Maps & Atlases at the end of the month before playing a one off headline London show at St Pancras Old Church on 21st March. Full listings as follows.
