Funeral for a friend announce intimate show at the atticus diy show FREE ENTRY GIGS

Darran Smith – Guitar | Kris Coombs-Roberts – Guitar | Gav Burrough – Bass, vocals | Ryan Richards – Drums, vocals | Matthew Davies – Lead Vocals

Welsh Rockers Funeral For A Friend have teamed up with Atticus Clothing on a special one off co-branded polo. To celebrate its launch the band will be performing a one off show at the Old Blue Last on the 1st of October in what will be the 5th of the Atticus DIY series. Read the Rock3 Review of the new single 'KICKING AND SCREAMING'

Gig entry is free but here’s the catch - invites will only be sent to the bands MySpace, Facebook and Bebo friends and posted on the bands iLike page later this week. So youve got to be in it to win it. We will randomly select 70 replies across the board from those who get their replies in first (or in the case of iLike who post on the fan wall) and those lucky people will have their names added to the guest list on the door. There will be no +1s, so one entry per person. If you want to be in with a chance of getting into this ace gig make sure you’re a member of one or all of the above official groups/pages and watch out for an announcement in the coming days.

The band release ‘Memory And Humanity’, their eagerly anticipated fourth album, on Oct 13 2008 via their own label, Join Us Records. It will be preceded by the ‘Kicking And Screaming’ single on Sept 29.

One of the UK’s most successful rock acts, Funeral For A Friend have notched up a staggering number of successes during their illustrious five year career. 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 in the UK. Headlining the NME Awards tour in 2005. Supporting the likes of Iron Maiden, Linkin Park and My Chemical Romance. Selling out the 8,000 tickets for an Alexandra Palace show in a heartbeat. Winning BT Digital Artist of the Year in 2007.

FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND are truly a phenomenon.

And on Oct 13 2008 (exactly five years to the day that their debut record 'Casually Dressed and Deep In Conversation' hit the shelves!) they will release their fourth album, ‘Memory And Humanity’. Produced by Romesh Dodangoda at Longwave Studios, Cardiff, it clearly demonstrates the bands current explosive form.

Featuring thirteen new tracks, ‘Memory And Humanity’ draws fire from the muscular intensity of their earlier material and melds it seamlessly to the melodic intelligence of latter albums ‘Hours’ and ‘Tales Don’t Tell Themselves’. This album shows the band to be as incisively relevant as ever.

The band will be headlining an extensive UK tour that will take place throughout October, November and December 2008. During the tour, Funeral For A Friend will be teaming up with Atticus once again for a series of signings. Please see dates below for details!

Support on the tour will come from Canadian metallers Cancer Bats, Irish upstarts In Case Of Fire and Welsh combo Attack Attack.
