Welsh post hardcore legends Funeral For A Friend are to release their new album ‘Conduit’ on January 28th 2013. The band will release the single ‘Best Friends and Hospital Beds’ on November 12th marking the first new material from the band since Pat Lundy replaced Ryan Richards on drums earlier this year.
The band’s vocalist Matt Davies-Kreye gives us the lowdown on the album title:
“Five people on a stage, a conduit for the message and the music, delivering that to people who want to listen in, be a part of whatever it is that we’re doing and being involved. It’s purely about delivering the message.
After 10 years of being a band, we see how much what we’ve done has affected people who care about our stuff. Whether it’s lyrics or whatever, these songs transcend us and become something more to a lot more people.
It sounds lofty I know but that’s how it feels to us when we meet the folks who dig our band and who treat these songs with so much love and respect. It blows our minds constantly.”
Funeral For A Friend are to appear at the UK edition of the Vans Warped Tour at Alexandra Palace on November 10th. Here’s a damn good reason why you should still care about this band:
