Hot on the heels of the release of Funeral For A Friend’s critically acclaimed fifth studio album ‘Welcome Home Armageddon’ earlier this year, the band have announced a new crop of headline dates in October in addition to the UK festivals they are playing over the Summer.
Funeral For A Friend headlined the Pepsi Max stage at Download festival this weekend and they are also playing Hevy Festival alongside such bands as Dillinger Escape Plan and Four Year Strong. Their continued ability to command significant festival audiences with their ever evolving live set is testament to the band’s longevity and popularity. Vocalist Matt Davies-Kreye says of their forthcoming headline tour: “Having just laid waste to this year’s Download fest we are beyond excited to be hitting the road again in October around the UK bringing forth our musical version of Armageddon. The last UK tour was just the tip of the iceberg, this time it’s going to be hardcore!”
Support acts on the tour will include US rockers Escape The Fate, Aussie’s The Amity Affliction and The Bunny The Bear.
Funeral For A Friend’s latest single ‘Broken Foundation’ has just been released following the band’s set at Download festival and the band are looking forward to bringing their new material to the masses on the headline tour as well as at forthcoming festival dates. Of the new track, drummer/vocalist Ryan Richards says “It’s probably the heaviest track we’ve ever written and, again, a lot of fun to play. This is probably the one I’m most looking forward to playing live. There’s a first on there with Kris doing his first recorded guitar solo. He’s been waiting almost ten years to unleash the beast and now it’s out for all to feast over!”
