Funeral For A Friend

Story by Jack Foley

FUNERAL For A Friend have announced a UK tour this autumn (2009) in support of their forthcoming “Best Of” album.

The band will hit the road throughout October to play a total of 18 gigs, kicking off in Plymouth and finishing in Norwich. The jaunt includes a night at London’s Koko venue.

Commenting on the dates, drummer Ryan Richards told the NME: “It’ll be quite a nice change to go out on tour and not have to concentrate on representing our latest album, instead putting together a set that represents all our best material from day one until now.”

He also predicted some B-sides and rareities among the set list.
