Guelph, Ontario, Canada's metalcore crew FAREWELL TO FREEWAY has inked a deal with Victory Records. The band has forged a loyal and diverse following having completed several full-fledged Canadian tours while playing numerous Southern Ontario shows in between.

FAREWELL TO FREEWAY is often described as post-hardcore and even nu-metal, both labels the group is hesitant to attach to themselves in a market desperate for diversity.

"A lot of our songs are really different," drummer Richie Gregor told Music-Critic.ca. "So when people ask us what kind of band we are we just say we are a rock band or a heavy rock band with hardcore influences, metal influences, pop influences it is just all over the place. The genres are mashed these days. We try and broaden the spectrum."
