Funeral For A Friend

Funeral for a Friend‘s energized blend of emotional rock, metal, and post-hardcore was first created by the Welsh quintet in 2002 with a series of EPs and singles, including ‘Between Order and Mode’, ‘Four Ways to Scream Your Name’, and ‘Juneau’. Such releases helped land the group on the cover of Kerrang! magazine, a recognition of the band’s growing hype and widespread appeal. Funeral for a Friend’s debut full-length, ‘Casually Dressed & Deep in Conversation’, was then issued in October 2003. Meanwhile, Funeral for a Friend embarked on a series of high-profile touring engagements, including a series of European dates opening for Iron Maiden.

Touring continued through summer 2004, and Funeral for a Friend returned with new material in June 2005 in the form of ‘Hours’, their second full-length. The guys picked up that year’s Kerrang! award for Best British Band. Two years later in 2007, Funeral for a Friend issued their next album, ‘Tales Don’t Tell Themselves’, subsequently jumping on the road for headlining dates in the U.K. and U.S. before spending summer on the Warped Tour. ‘Memory and Humanity’ followed shortly thereafter, arriving during the final quarter of 2008 and featuring the band’s familiar mix of emotional songcrafting with an anthemic rock uplift.
