Funeral For A Friend live dates

Funeral For A Friend live dates. FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND will hit the road in March / April next year with a string of dates at intimate venues, some of which are in towns they’ve never actually played before. Vocalist Matt Davies-Kreye is excited to say the least ‘ ‘Spring time is gonna be the time to lay waste to the UK good and proper! It’s been too long since we’ve sauntered our way across the British Isles and with a bag full of ass kicking songs in tow this tour is going to blow people away!’  It’s a chance for the band to maintain their personal connection with those who’ve supported them throughout the years and get in front of those fans who may not have had a chance to catch them live previously. Support on these dates will come from fast rising British band Rise To Remain who won Best British Newcomer at both the Metal Hammer and Kerrang! Awards this year. They’ve just completed work on their debut album with Colin Richardson and Carl Bown. FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND recently unveiled a music video to accompany the track ‘Serpents In Solitude’ which featured on the band’s recent ‘The Young And Defenceless’ EP. The track will also appear on the band’s forthcoming album which is set to be released in March of next year. Funeral For A Friend’s fifth studio album was produced by Romesh Dodangoda who was also at the helm for the production of the latest EP and 2008′s ‘Memory And Humanity’. The band’s newly announced headline dates will coincide with the release of the new album.

The track will be released as a download only on Sunday 13th June to coincide with their performance at this years’ Download Festival. The last year has been a phenomenal one for Steel Panther and has seen them rise from a tent-busting performance at Download Festival 2009, a place as special guests on ZZ Top’s UK dates, and a sell out show at Brixton Academy, to a highly anticipated slot at Download 2010 next weekend. Steel Panther continue to bring their high octane, irresistible blend of hairspray, spandex and awesome Heavy Metal back to the UK. Steel Panther are audacious frontman Michael Starr, Stix Zadinia on drums, Satchel on guitar, and bassist Lexxi Foxxx . The four member band, known for their outrageous stage presence and gargantuan guitar riffs have been entertaining fans and scores of rock and entertainment VIPs the length and breadth of Britain, making them one of the hottest acts and by far the most loud, entertaining and awesomely rocking live band to have hit the live scene for years. Steel Panther are the embodiment of Heavy Metal and they’ll stop at nothing until they have returned the genre back to it’s rightful place – at the top of the musical food chain. Join them on their quest to bring Metal back and be sure to witness on of the best and most amusing live shows you’ll probably ever see.
