Thanks to a new deal with Good Fight Music, British post-hardcore act Funeral For A Friend will unleash Welcome Home Armageddon, their brand-spankin’ new album, on March 15.
Armageddon is the band’s first collection of new music since 2008’s Memory And Humanity, and features “a new musical direction” for the band. Hmm. Wonder what that’s all about, and why they’d change direction?
“On Welcome Home Armageddon, we truly stretched ourselves creatively,” states vocalist Matthew Davies-Kreye. “We were obviously taken aback when [former guitarist] Darran [Smith] left the band, but his choice allowed us to explore new territory musically. We just went in any and every direction we wanted to. The changes to our lineup reignited our passion, kicked our asses and made us work harder for this band than we’ve ever done before.”
The album will feature a dozen new songs, including “This Side Of Brightness,” “Front Row Seats To The End of The World,” “Spinning Over The Island,” “Damned If You Do, Dead If You Don’t,” and “Medicated.”
“The excitement we have for the future of this band is all over the songs on ‘Welcome Home Armageddon’,” adds Davies-Kreye. “The album is about acceptance and coming to terms with what has and is, while refusing to give up on what could be. There are songs that take me places I’ve been trying to go musically all my life. I’m so proud of what we have done.”
