Funeral for a Friend are a Welsh post-hardcore band from Bridgend who formed in 2001.

Funeral for a Friend have been said to be a prominent influence on the British post-hardcore scene, primarily with their debut album Casually Dressed & Deep in Conversation, a release which is believed by some to have set a high standard for the band to rival in future releases.James Ding of AbsolutePunk stated that: “…the album still stands tall atop of many recent releases due to the quality of the music on offer, and even though FFAF may have strayed from the style that started their career, this is still a landmark album in modern British rock music”. In April 2011, Rock Sound magazine inducted Casually Dressed & Deep in Conversation into Rock Sound’s Hall Of Fame, crediting the album as an influence on albums by bands like: Fightstar, The Blackout, Kids In Glass Houses and We Are The Ocean.

The gig will be supported by local band Years Young. Years Young are an Alternative Rock Quartet from North Lincolnshire. The band had already earned the title as one of the most anticipated bands of 2015, after spending the first 9 months carefully planning a launch that would instantly stamp their name on the scene.

Taking influences from bands such as Biffy Clyro, Mallory Knox and Don Broco, the band have a live show that is powerful, polished and by no means timid.

2015 sees the release of their first single, ‘Miracles’ on August 15th with a hectic schedule to follow into 2016, including a major UK tour and the release their Debut EP ‘Hiraeth’, recorded with Producer Roni Szpakowski at Peak Studios and mastered by Brian Lucey in Los Angeles.
