Funeral For A Friend reveal new track and album

F4AF Band Shot

Funeral For A Friend have revealed details of their new album, Chapter And Verse, and have shared a new song, “You’ve Got A Bad Case Of The Religions.”

The follow up to 2013 album Conduit, the band’s seventh LP is slated for release on the 19th of January via Distiller Records. In a statement accompanying the announcement, the album is described as “unapologetically political” and “a far cry from the band’s early material.”

Vocalist Matthew Davies-Kreye says the track offers a stark warning: “Never trust something you can’t see with your own eyes.”

Funeral For A Friend will play a select number of dates between now and December, before returning for a UK headline tour in January.
