Hot on the heels of the release of Funeral For A Friend’s critically-acclaimed fifth studio album ‘Welcome Home Armageddon’ earlier this year, the band will be appearing at several UK festivals over the summer, as well as releasing new single ‘Broken Foundation’. FFAF will be headlining the Pepsi Max stage at Download festival and they are also playing Hevy Festival alongside such bands as Dillinger Escape Plan and Four Year Strong. Their continued ability to command significant festival audiences with their ever-evolving live set is testament to the band’s longevity and consistent popularity.
Single ‘Broken Foundation’ will be released on 13th June, following the band’s set at Download festival and the band are looking forward to bringing their new material to the masses. Of the new track, drummer/vocalist Ryan Richards says – ‘t’s probably the heaviest track we’ve ever written and, again, a lot of fun to play. This is probably the one I’m most looking forward to playing live. There’s a first on there with Kris doing his first recorded guitar solo! He’s been waiting almost ten years to unleash the beast and now it’s out for all to feast over!’ Anyone who gets to see FFAF over the summer is certainly in for a treat!
