Farzad Farzad was one of the founders and original band member of the Corouz Group in 2001. He left the band before they could release their first album. Farzad's spot in Corouz was taken by Shervin Sohrabian. Farzad had left Corouz Group for personal reasons,[unreliable source?] but obviously did keep the rights to all songs he had created for Corouz Group.
His second (legal) album Shock took quite a while to see the light of day. Originally it was planned for release in 2006, but was postponed. This was mainly due to the fact that his new album(s) were leaked on the Internet prematurely. As a result, he had a hard time publishing and performing his work inside Iran legally. In the mean time he was able to give a couple of European concerts together with Mohsen Yeganeh in the Netherlands and Germany in May 2007. The second album Shock was finally released in 2008.
To avoid the same problems from happening again, Farzad tried to come to some sort of understanding with blogs and pirate websites not to freely distribute songs from his next album directly after its release in stores. For his third album Shaans Farzad was so afraid this it would be leaked and bootlegged that he released the album prematurely on a late afternoon, with a misprinted cover! He was so nervous that he could not sleep for nights. While (legal) music television is non-existent inside Iran, it was quite a novelty that this album was promoted in movie theatres and on VCD/DVDs with a 3-minute music video medley featuring four of the new album's songs.
Late August 2010, he managed to make his European chart debut with the second song Chikeh Chikeh from his third album Shaans and managed to stay there for two weeks with an introduction to his new album. This received high attention in the Iranian on-line media.
Farzad Farzin also has a modest acting career. His first role was that of singer in the movie Pesaraane Ajori, directed by Majid Gharizadeh. Many years before that he appeared in many shortfilms as well as the TeleFilm Donyaaye Mahboob, directed by Arsalan Amirhosseini.[unreliable source?] Farzad Farzin recently starred in a motion picture about an aspiring singer whose biggest dream is to sing a song for the Persian Gulf while standing on a boat. He also featured on the soundtrack.
