Funeral for a friend conduct instore signings with atticus

Welsh rockers FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND have just announced they'll be undertaking a number of instore signings, hosted by Atticus Clothing, whilst on their 24-date UK tour which kicks off THIS WEEK!! NEW Single 'Kicking and Screaming out NOW.. read the review HERE .. watch the Video HERE

Their hugely-anticipated fourth album 'Memory & Humanity' is released onto the world NEXT MONDAY (October 13), exactly five years to the day their debut record 'Casually Dressed and Deep In Conversation' hit the shelves!

The first on their own label, Join Us, it is a diverse and exciting album that will no doubt match the successes of their previous releases.

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.

Press news on funeral for a friend


"This album's greatest asset is that it's an irreplaceable soundtrack for being young, British, intelligent and triumphing over adversity. And Funeral For A Friend were the only rock band who were ever going to supply that in 2008. Welcome home, boys!" KERRANG

"'Memory & Humanity'...the best rock album of 2008!" THE FLY

"('Memory & Humanity') should see their circle of friends grow further than ever!" ROCKSOUND

"FFAF have found new life in chewing up British rock and triumphantly spitting it in your eye." DISORDER

"Funeral For A Friend have come back with another solid album.." LOADED

"'Memory & Humanity' finds them rediscovering some of the aggression of their early years." Q

"As the opening, chugging riff of opening track 'Rules And Games' breathes into life, only one thought is really in your head: thank God, they're back!" KERRANG
