Julia leaves GF

Unfortunately we have to inform you that Julia has decided to leave Goodbye Fairground. That said the five of us would like to point out that this decision will only affect the band but not our friendship. We will play our remaining shows until July with the current lineup and afterwards Julia will focus on new tasks and musical projects.
Goodbye Fairground will NOT break up though. Our friend Stefan of Idle Class has joined the band and will soon record some songs with us. We’ll play our first shows with him in August or September.
Thanks for your support and attention! See all of you soon!
Alex, Benjamin, Benny, Jan and Julia

(Tour is) Over and (album is) Out!

After years of waiting (literally) our album “I Started With The Best Intentions” is finally out. Since no words I know could describe how great that feels we would just like to take this opportunity to thank some people who made this possible instead. To start at the very beginning tons of very wet kisses go out to our dear friend Jochen Stummbillig and his Kaputtmacher studio. It was his work and passion that made the album sound like it does now. If you ever need someone to take care of your songs and record them in the best possible way we highly recommend him. Furthermore we’d like to thank Esta and the Fairground Choir for singing and screaming. Your voices might be ruined now but at least it was for a good cause. A big thank you goes out to Matze and Tobbe at Concrete Jungle. We couldn’t ask for a better record label and still can’t believe that someone is crazy enough to spend his time and money on our music. Last but not least we’d like to thank everyone who has listened to the record yet or even bought it. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Please get in touch with us, we love to talk about our own music A LOT!

In case you don’t have the record yet, we recommend you try the Concrete Jungle webstore, Green Hell, Flight 13, Interpunk, any small record store or our merchtable.

The bad news is that our small tour is over now. We had the greatest time possible and can’t thank you enough for making it such a special experience but we’ll try anyway. First and foremost we’d like to thank our friends in Western Grace. The world needs more bands and/or people like you. Thanks for being such great company! In case you haven’t heard of Western Grace go and check out their demo here. Think of a mixture between 90ies Emo (the time when Emo was still about writing cool songs) and modern melodic Punkrock and you get a first idea. Thanks to all promoters, people who let us sleep on their floors and couches, gave us food and possibilities to take showers and to all bands we shared the stage with! Last but not least a big thanks to everyone who watched us play, sang along and danced with us. We’ll be back soon!
