Funeral For A Friend

Funeral For A Friend

Funeral For A Friend might have been the soundtrack to many of our teenage 'angst' years; y'know, when it was cool to wear far too much eyeliner and paint your nails black whilst swanning about in your mums old fishnets and a tutu held up by two belts.

Just me? Oh right, whatever, anyway, the hunks from Wales are set to release their new single ‘Sixteen’ on 21st March and after watching this video, it's clear that the years have been kind to these lads, in fact, I'd go as far as to say that I think they're actually looking fitter than they did when I was 17.

On Sixteen, drummer Ryan Richards told us; “Matt originally came up with an acoustic skeleton of the song and we all loved it, but in the form it was in at actually sounded more like a Secret Show (Matt's country side project) song. The melody and the lyrics were so good that we had to find a way to make it work. It was definitely a lot of fun having the band interpret the parts in our own individual ways and turning it into a Funeral for a Friend song.”

Well, we like it so far boys. 10/10.
