Funeral For A Friend Live Vid

Festival Crowd Header

Since their inception in 2001, Welsh post-hardcore act Funeral For A Friend have consistently pushed the boundaries of their genre and carved a place for themselves as one of the UK’s most electrifying rock bands.

With their upcoming new album ‘Chapter and Verse’ on the horizon, the electrifying quintet stopped off at Edinburgh’s esteemed small venue Cabaret Voltaire as part of the Dr Martens #STANDFORSOMETHING Tour to perform an incendiary set for their hardcore fan base.

From their incredible performance last weekend, here they are revisiting their classic single ‘Roses For The Dead’ from their critically acclaimed album ‘Hours’.

What do Funeral For A Friend stand for?
"The idea that music can break down walls that segregate us in everyday life and can make you feel a part of something larger than yourself, that's something to stand for. A real sense of community and belonging." - Matthew Davies-Kreye
