UK headline and festival dates plotted throughout May and June, including three sets at Camden Rocks this weekend + Download Festival
Almost ten years to the day after Funeral For A Friend released their iconic album ‘Hours’, the band are set to release a live performance of the album in its entirety. The visceral live take on album track ‘Roses For The Dead’ taken from the ‘Hours Live at Islington Academy’ release is now watchable here.
As well as the ‘Hours’ set, there’s a selection of five more recent cuts, as well as all time favourites from the band’s impressive arsenal to round off the tracklisting. The release will be available on 15th June as Vinyl+DVD+Digital Audio, CD+DVD digipack and Digital Audio through End Hits Records. Filmed and recorded on 25th April, 2014 at London’s Islington Academy during Funeral For A Friend’s ‘Hours’ tour with Boysetsfire and More Than Life, the live set serves as a reminder that this band are a vital part of UK rock history and their ability to captivate a crowd and craft important music is as strong as ever.
Funeral For A Friend are hitting the road hard over the next couple of weeks and part of their touring schedule includes a mighty three sets they’re scheduled to play at Camden Rocks this weekend. Of the planned triple header, vocalist Matthew Davies-Kreye says “Having fun is key for us when it comes to live shows and sometimes that involves being spontaneous so the idea of three different sets on the same day at Camden Rocks just was too good to pass up. I’m sure it will be chaos but that’s the fun of it.”
