Funeral For A Friend reveal Chapter And Verse

Funeral For A Friend have confirmed the release of seventh album Chapter And Verse – and launched lead track You’ve Got A Bad Case Of The Religions.

The follow-up to 2013’s Conduit appears on January 19 via Distiller Records. It’s described as “unapologetically political” and “a far cry from the band’s early material.”

Vocalist Matthew Davies-Kreye says the track offers a stark warning: “Never trust something you can’t see with your own eyes.”

Funeral For A Friend hit the road next month ahead of a full UK tour in January.
