Farewell Continental unveil true identities, set release date

Farewell Continental—the pseudo-mysterious Minneapolis five-piece—have finally announced who the band's members are (although it hasn't been all that much of a secret). Farewell Continental go by the names of Harrison Ford movie characters, but since they're planning a summer tour, they can't hide that "Dr. Richard Kimble" is Justin Pierre of Motion City Soundtrack, "Allie Fox" is vocalist/keyboardist Kari Gray, "Rick Deckard" is guitarist Thomas Rehbein, "Dr. Norman Spencer" is bassist Jim Adolphson and "Jack Ryan" is drummer Josh McKay.

The band will release their debut full-length, ¡Hey, Hey Pioneers!, on May 10 via Paper + Plastick Records. The next day, Farewell Continental will kick off their first U.S. tour. Pierre says, "I can guarantee that it will be the [band's] only tour of the year and for this record."
