After a super busy year releasing new album ‘Conduit’ and a huge tour in Australia, Funeral For A Friend are back in October with a UK Headline Tour. Lead Singer Matt Davies shares “We’re incredibly excited to hit the road again in support of Conduit and after having so much fun on tour earlier in the year we decided to step things up a little but not too much. We wanted to play some bigger shows but still retain that intimacy that we all loved from playing the shows back in January. So make sure to wear your best mosh shoes and come sing, scream and dance with us!”
The band’s sixth album scored a Top 40 spot in the album chart earlier this year. The record is a fast and furious return to the band’s hardcore roots which has delighted both fans and critics alike. We caught up with Drummer Pat Lundy ahead of their upcoming tour…
