Funeral For A Friend announce final tour

Funeral For A Friend have announced their farewell tour, after concluding they’ve reached a “natural end.”

Their Last Chance To Dance shows take place from February to April next year, with two shows in each location.

The first night of each pair will include a performance of 2005 album Hours, while the second will feature 2003 debut Casually Dressed And Deep In Conversation.

Frontman Matthew Davies-Kreye says: “We’ve done everything we set out to do, and way more than I could ever have hoped for – so I’m not upset.

“We all felt that Chapter And Verse was a pretty decent full stop on an incredible 14 and a half years of making music together.”

Tickets go on sale at 10am on September 18 (Friday).

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
