Funeral For A Friend Streaming New Cover Track

Welsh post-hardcore band Funeral For A Friend has premiered a new cover of BoySetsFire’s song “Rookie” today at AltPress.com (also available below).

The song is featured on a two-track split record, which also features Boysetsfire covering Funeral For A Friend’s “1045 Amsterdam Conversations.” The split 7” vinyl will be released in the U.S. on May 13th by No Sleep Records and is currently available for pre-order here.

“When it came down to figuring out what BSF track we wanted to cover it wasn't easy,” says FFAF’s Matthew Davies. “We all had our favourites but we just had to figure out which song collectively made sense. After the Eulogy is such an inspirational record and we all love 'Rookie,' it's probably the most recognizable BSF song and we figured because of it's connection with people that we should give it a shot. We recorded it in a day. It was so much fun to play, it's such an anthem.” More...

Funeral For A Friend Comments On New Album

Funeral For A Friend has checked in with the following update about releasing a new album:

"We thought we'd update you on the EP. If you pledged on a TYAD CD unsigned and unbundled you should now have it in your hands! They were sent out at the end of last week. If you pledged on a signed copy they are on their way back from being signed by the band as you read this and will also be sent out this week. Posters and t shirts are sitting ready and when the signed CDs come in all bundles containing these items will be go go go! Watch your postbox. The Casually Dressed presentation discs will also be on your walls by now. Hope you love them. The vinyl EPs and DVDs aren't in yet so stay tuned to the PledgeMusic site for news on those shortly. All of which brings us round to..

"As we're sure you're all aware we've got a new record coming out early next year. And if you liked The Young And Defenceless, this one's going to blow you a new back passage. If you did get involved in the EP then we’d like to say a huge THANK YOU to you. You helped us make that record and we were overwhelmed with the support it received. We’re so happy with the EP and excitement in the FFAF camp is at an all time high. If you made it to Cardiff recently and saw the show we did with Tiger Please, we hope that came across and that you enjoyed the new songs we previewed for you.

"So what next? The album! The whole process around the EP and the freedom that working with PledgeMusic and you guys gave us was so liberating that we’re inspired to do it again. It feels like the momentum we started with Memory And Humanity and then continued with TYAD in terms of retaining control about how we make the record, and then how we choose to release it has started something we don’t want to stop right now. And you are a big part of that. So thank you! And read on. More...
