A Post Hardcore band from south Wales who were once a Sextet named "January Thirst".
They had a shuffle of band members and became the one of the greatest bands to emerge from the UK.
"Funeral For A Friend" put together a mixture of Hardcore, melodic metal, and punk to create the greatest sounding music from over the severn bridge.
The best band i have seen live, they sound way better than the record.
Matt Davies (lead vocals) is always in tune, can scream, and puts so much feeling into his voice, the two guitarists Darren Smith and Kris Roberts both produce riffs that Iron Maiden would be proud of, Gareth Davies (bass) sings backing vocals so well always in tune, and the drummer Ryan Richards is amazing, knows exactly when double-bass is needed and creates atmosphere with his perfect use of the "Zil Bell".

I recomend that everyone into any type of rock music buys "seven ways to scream your name" and "casually dressed and dep in conversation" why not go get "hours" too.

Im saying this, comng from Bristol where the Welsh are not the most liked people by any means.
Best Songs:

>The art of american football
>Bullet Theory
>escape artists never die
>The end of nothing
>This years most open heartbreak
>1045 Amsterdam Conversations
>She drove me to day time television
>Waking Up
>You Want Romance
>10 scene points to the winer

One of the most awesome Welsh bands to ever make it. Not just loved by emo kids.The lyrics are thought-provoking and meaningful, the riffs are stunning, the drumming is powerful, and unlike many bands, when funeral for a friend play live, they sound alot better than they do on the album, which is a rare thing. Casually dressed and deep in conversation/ Seven ways to scream your name should be in any rock fans CD collection
