Funeral For A Friend And Their Own Record Label 'Join Us Records' First Single

Three gold selling albums. Nine Top 20 singles. Half a decade of global touring taking in Singapore, Thailand, Australasia, Japan, America and every corner of Europe. Twenty plus magazine front covers. FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND are truly a phenomenon.

And in 2008 they are embarking on the greatest part of their adventure yet. They have formed their very own record label, the bullishly titled Join Us Records. Funded by Ingenious Music and built on Integral’s (a division of PIAS) formidable infrastructure, this is a move that has energised and excited the Welsh quintet in equal measure.

“We were fortunate to be on a major label for the past five years,” says bassist Gareth Davies, “Now we are in a great position to take the time investment that they have already put into us, and walk away, and start afresh, with a clean slate and with the fanbase already in place. This is a great stepping stone for us.”

‘Waterfront Dance Club’ and ‘Beneath The Burning Tree’ will be Funeral For A Friend’s fans’ first chance to hear the newly invigorated band’s current sound. Drawing fire from the muscular intensity of their earlier material and melding it seamlessly to the melodic intelligence of latter albums ‘Hours’ and ‘Tales Don’t Tell Themselves’, this new material shows the band to be as incisively relevant as ever. ‘Waterfront Dance Club’ will be available as a free download from July 14 and both tracks will grace a limited edition 7” from the same date.

Now with their own hands at the tiller, FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND look destined to add another scintillating chapter to their incredible story.

Catch the guys at one of their following UK dates:

Jun 28 - Woodstock, WAKESTOCK FESTIVAL
Jun 30 - Manchester, Academy 3
Jul 1 - Glasgow, King Tuts
Jul 2 - London, Kings College
Jul 4 - Newport, TJ's
Jul 6 - Port Lympne Wild Animal Park, ZOO THOUSAND & EIGHT FESTIVAL
