Australia’s Gold Coast FAIRCHILD have unveiled their new single and title-track from the upcoming debut album. ‘So Long And Thank You’ marks the return for the six-piece who left the UK after a two-year stay in Manchester, where the band could concentrate on touring and finishing the record.
The new single was written shortly after guitarist Tim Voeten lost his father and represents FAIRCHILD’s gratitude for the people who have loved, supported and sometimes left them. Voeten himself states: “‘So Long and Thank You was written in different sections, by different members of the band, but with the same person in mind—my father. When I hear this song, of course, I think about my Dad, but I also remember that it helped cement in me my love for making music with these people.”
The debut album will be released on August 4th, via Canvas Sounds, the band’s own label. Meantime, listen to the title-track below here.
