Yeah, we’re still alive

Albumcover for "I Started With The Best Intentions"

Hey friends,

just wanted to let you know that we’re aware this thing hasn’t been updated in a while. Still, that doesn’t mean we’ve broken up. We are in the studio right now and record our new full length. We’ll talk afterwards. Ok?

Thanks for your patience!

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
