Following up the re-release of the band’s first EP ‘Between Order And Model’ through BoySetsFire’s End Hits Records, Funeral For A Friend have announced a handful of UK dates in April next year with support from BoySetsFire. As Matthew from FFAF explains –“It's taken so many years but to finally say that we're going on tour with BoySetsFire again puts a huge smile on my face. I have loved this band through every record they've released and feel honored that I can call them dear friends. They are a huge musical/lifestyle inspiration and getting to see them tear it up is going to be incredible!”
Josh from BoySetsFire adds "I cannot believe how excited I am about this tour. Funeral For A Friend and BoySetsFire? I would go to this show, I would buy a ticket. Seriously though, we are very excited about touring with our friends in Funeral For A Friend. It will be one for the ages. Please come and join us."
These dates will see Funeral For A Friend play their album ‘Hours’ in full. Tickets will be on sale from Friday 25th October at 9am.

MTV has added the latest video from Phoenix, AZ theatrical rockers Farewell, My Love. To check out “Mirror, Mirror” visit: http://www.mtv.com/videos/farewell-my-love/963493/mirror-mirror.jhtml.
The band recently sat down for a series of video interviews to discuss the songs that make up their new LP, "Gold Tattoos". In the first clip, front man Ryan Howell discusses the inspiration behind the epic lead track, “Afraid of the Dark” here.
Watch for more clips in the weeks ahead!
Farewell My Love’s "Gold Tattoos" is out now on Standby Records and to order Gold Tattoos on iTunes click here:
The conceptual artistry and theatricality of My Chemical Romance, the reckless danger and skillful musicianship of Avenged Sevenfold, the dark mystique and anthem-inducing sing-alongs of AFI and the brash experimentalism and attitude of 30 Seconds to Mars are all components that have a home in the Farewell, My Love manuscript. With forceful determination and wonderfully soaring grandiosity, Farewell, My Love put a unique spin on theatrical hard rock with utmost dedication.
Ryan Howell’s intense and diverse vocals sit atop the heavy, precise and melodic guitar work of Röbby Creasey and Logan Thayer, all ably backed by the percussive but tasteful rhythm section of bassist Charlee Conley and drummer Chad Kowal. Additional instrumentation, including string arrangements and bells, bolster the band’s guitar-driven rock, adding to the artistic atmosphere on display throughout.
“Fans can expect a very theatrical, diverse and deep record,” promises Creasey. “Each of us put our hearts into this and we can not wait to see everyone’s reactions,” adds Kowal.
Farewell, My Love is currently out on the Bad Blood Tour with Blood on the Dance Floor. See dates at the top.

Swedish fuzz rockers Truckfighters are to unleash limited edition vinyl EP via Last Hurrah Records; preorders now available
BAND FICTION: Truckfighters were employed to wrestle with a Skania long-haulage truck and trailer
Treading the trenches of heaviness somewhere between Fu Manchu and Queens Of The Stone Age, to hear Truckfighters is to hear the sounds of the desert; it's in their wide open expanses, grand open grooves and dust-caked metal riffs. You can hear progression and imagination; a band bred on the California badlands, on sprawling vistas and parched wilderness. The dynamic trio however hail from Örebro. Unafraid to plough their own furrow, Truckfighters have forged ahead and spend months on the road touring the world. Closing in on four-hundred gigs across four continents (Europe, Australia, and North and South America), being in front of crowds, sweat-sodden and crazed is where they are happiest. It's why a Truckfighters show is such a wild, free-form, charged affair.
The band's forthcoming new full-length is slated for release next year and includes the track "The Chairman," hence "The Chairman Special Edition" EP. Delivering over thirty minutes of pure power fuzz, the EP features the title track plus three live tunes -- "Desert Cruiser," "Monte Gangano," and "Traffic" -- all recorded while on tour in Australia. Presented at 45 RPM for best sound quality on a multi-colored vinyl 12-inch, "The Chairman Special Edition" EP comes in a full-color sleeve and jacket limited to 500 copies worldwide and only available from Last Hurrah Records. The jacket cover artwork has spot UV gloss, spot PMS, and silver metallic ink designed by artist Lindsey Kuhn and comes in two different vinyl colors: Desert Sunset and Desert Sunrise, each a mix of opaque and translucent colors (250 of each color).
Preorders are now available for the Truckfighters "The Chairman Special Edition" EP courtesy of Last Hurrah Records at THIS LOCATION where you can also check out a video for the title track!

New Found Glory releases their live album, "Kill It Live", today on Violently Happy / Bridge Nine Records. Two sold-out shows in Southern California¹s Chain Reaction are responsible for the incredible compilation of live energy captured on this 17-track record, which also features 3 bonus studio tracks. The video for "Connect the Dots", New Found Glory¹s new single from Kill It Live, was premiered last week on mtvU and Buzzworthy - check it out here. Directed by John Francis Conway III, New Found Glory shows off their skills on the football field, while bringing their trademark pop-punk sound.
Established in 1997, New Found Glory has been a force in the punk rock scene since their inception. From their debut "Nothing Gold Can Stay" in 1999 all the way to 2011's "Radiosurgery" (with eight releases in between, 3 gold albums and 4 consecutive Billboard Top 20 albums), New Found Glory have transcended trends and gimmicks by writing songs from the heart that listeners of all ages can relate to.
Be sure to catch New Found Glory on the road co-headlining with Alkaline Trio and H2O later this month. The tour starts October 23rd in San Francisco, California and runs through November 25th - all tour dates can be found below.
