you took the aggression of rock, the intensity of hardcore, and the painted heart of emo, added some stratospheric pop harmonies that would incinerate Jimmy Eat World at 20 paces, and then lit the touchpaper, you'd have Welsh quintet FFAF's particularly effective plan of attack down pat.' KERRANG KKKK In an age of musical fusion and genre straddling hybrid's there are few surprises and fewer revelations. Funeral For A Friend are truly an exception. Taking the emotional drive and melodic heart of emo, the gut-driven power of rock and the hardworking ethic of hardcore, FFAF are as potent and intense a band as you could wish for. And while there is undeniably a muscular aggression within their sound, their true strength lies in their dedication to the art of writing songs! Like Jimmy Eat World, Boy Sets Fire, Hundred Reasons and Waterdown, Funeral For A Friend are fuelled by emotion and a desire to captivate through the power of their music. The gloriously expressive voice of Matt Davies soars over the layered and complex interplay of the band, creating an entity which truly boasts a beating heart. for info
