Biography

Whittier, Los Angeles CA, United States (2005 – present)

There are multiple artists with the name Funeral Party:

(1) Funeral Party is a four-piece band that formed one night in a Whittier, CA park in 2005. Initially, the band didn’t even own equipment and had to borrow it from bands they played with at East Los Angeles backyard parties and warehouses. Lars Stalfors, engineer for The Mars Volta, invited the band to record in the Volta’s studio in East L.A. The sessions yielded “Chalice”. They are currently signed to RCA Records. Their song “New York City Moves to the Sound of L.A.” was featured in a Taco Bell commercial for the “Doritos Locos Taco”.

Chad Elliott - Vocals
James Torres - Guitar
Kimo - Bass
Tim Madrid - Drums
Danny Kid - Percussion / Keyboards

(2) Funeral Party is a two-man Japanese darkwave outfit. They made their debut on the Pafe Record compilation “Vision of the Emotion” in 1985. Their first record “Dream of Embryo” was released by Pafe Record the following year, with cover art penned by contemporary muzan-e artist Maruo Suehiro.

T. Kusano - vocals / drums / synthesizer / guitar / bass
M. Morita - synthesizer / vocals / electronics.

    Probably just a hoax, people have been posting photos from live shows in their Facebook.

    I find amazing how none of the similar artists is really similar. These guys really sound unique.

    They told me on facebook that the new album would be released early next year. And I think the reason they were so unenthusiastic at warped is because they usually had a really small group of people watching their set. I mean after playing a bunch of shows where the crowd hardly knows you it must be tiring.
