Post hardcore luminaries Funeral for a Friend are splitting up. A massive force in UK heavy music, Funeral for a Friend are responsible for one of the defining UK post hardcore records in the form of 2003’s Casually Dressed and Deep in Conversation.
The band would go on to write and record a total of 7 studio albums but suffer significant line-up changes throughout their career, to the point that only one original member remains (guitarist Kris Coombs-Roberts), although the majority of their recorded output also features vocalist Matthew Davies-Kreye.
Funeral for a Friend will embark on one final tour in early 2016 playing 2-night residencies across Australia, Europe and the UK where they will play both Hours one night and then Casually Dressed and Deep in Conversation the other night. The band will also play songs from various EPs and albums in addition to these records in full.
UK Scumscene would like to thank Funeral for a Friend for their contribution to UK heavy music and wish everyone in the band the best in any future endeavours. You will be sorely missed.
