Post-Hardcore/Metalcore artists Fathom Farewell release the video for their song Consume The Earth.
Consume The Earth is the newest single for Fathom Farewell’s upcoming new album due out this summer. Frontman Alex Cohen explains the inspiration behind the song.
Consume the Earth is a projection of how I interpret our generation currently perceives the world. We all are consumed by society pulling us in so many different directions as we grow that so many of us wind up confused about what we are meant to do with our lives. This causes a lot of depression and even aggression. Our heart pulls us one way while the work we need to do to survive pulls us in the other in most cases, leaving us feeling as though our dreams may never see the light of day to free us from the constant pain of feeling as though our lives aren’t unfolding the way we had hoped for. We hope to inspire others to allow their dreams to see the light of day in spite of whatever may need to be done to survive. In the video we really wanted to channel our energy through the music to portray our fire to continue pursuing our passions in hopes of one day making them our means of surviving. I also feel our environment and the people around us are consumed by the fear of the unknown binding itself to those who are at the highest authority given that we really never can be truly sure of their intentions. Many emotions came into play when writing this song for all of us and it all can be summarized by the concept that life can either be a paradise or a prison depending on your outlook and how you decide to live your life..

About Fathom Farewell
Fathom Farewell is
Brandon Hursey (guitar)
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 and our future, front man 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 is no wonder the band has swiftly made a name for itself throughout New England, having earned opportunities to support Sevendust’s 20th anniversary tour, along with area dates with Issues, The Devil Wears Prada, Volumes, Emmure, I Prevail, and many more.
The band has also performed four times at the Vans Warped Tour in Boston since forming in 2014, three times at New England Metal and Hardcore Festival, and made appearances at the MA Rock and Shock tour date. Following the release of the 2017 “Decomposition” EP, the band has accrued 13k streams on Spotify. Bolstered by recent additions to the newly completed lineup and with an upcoming EP produced by Chris Piquette (Trophy Wives/Riviera), Fathom Farewell aims to support this organic 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.”
