News : Funeral For a Friend supports announced

By on May 1, 2013

Supports for the upcoming Funeral For a Friend Australian tour have now been announced. Congrats and kudos to Relentess, Dollarosa, Perspectives and ArmourUs on securing supports in their respected city.

Over the course of a decade, Funeral For A Friend have remained one of the most fascinating bands to come out of the UK. Their debut album ‘Casually Dressed & Deep In Conversation’ has long been upheld as a landmark punk album of the 2000s but it by no means bred a sense of self-satisfaction for the ambitious Welshmen. The five-piece’s musical evolution has been heavily documented and it has seen them arrive at the most confident, kickass juncture of their career in 2013.

Having spent almost the entirety of 2012 recording their new album, Funeral For A Friend return to Australia, refreshed and reinvigorated. Their seventh studio album ‘Conduit’ (out now) serves as the perfect precursor to this massive Australian tour. No strangers to our shores, Funeral For A friend have amassed an increasingly large fan base with each of their Australian tours, each time cementing a more a fiery and lasting impression. This outing boasts ten shows through five states, making this Funeral For a Friend’s most extensive Aussie visit to date.

With Sydney hardcore stalwarts RELENTLESS first out the main support slot already, a barrage of burgeoning local heavy talent has been announced on all shows. They’ll warm stages before Funeral For A Friend descend on crowds to remind audiences why they’re one of the most enduring entities of post-hardcore. The support list is impressive; including Brisbane high-energy punk rock upstarts DOLLAROSA, Sydney’s raw and epic PERSPECTIVES, and up and coming post-hardcore kids ArmourUs for Melbourne.
