Biography

Wales, United Kingdom (2001 – present)

Funeral for a Friend is a band from Wales. They formed in 2001 as a sextet called January Thirst. This did not last long, and in 2002 Funeral for a Friend recorded their debut EP Between Order and Model with their original 6-piece line up. After having been together for just a few months, the band changed their line up and subsequently signed a deal with Warner Brothers records for whom they recorded their second EP Four Ways To Scream Your Name.

The band’s debut full-length album Casually Dressed And Deep In Conversation was released in October 2003. Various singles were lifted off this, including Bullet Theory, Juneau (Juno on previous EPs), she drove me to daytime tv and Escape Artists Never Die. After a B-side to Escape Artists Never Die was released as a single, this was called You Want Romance? the video was sequal to Bullet Theory

A DVD named Spilling Blood In 8MM was released only a year after, documenting every music video, including the two from the EPs 10:45 Amsterdam Conversations and This Year’s Most Open Heartbreak, live footage, and the first album’s promotion tour, discography, chronology and an exclusive video for Juneau acoustic

In the United States, the EP Seven Ways to Scream Your Name was released instead. It featured three of the tracks from Four Ways To Scream Your Name, three from Between Order and Model and a further unreleased track. The debut was released later.

The second album Hours was released in 2005. Streetcar, Monsters, History and Roses For The Dead have been released as singles.
