FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND headline UK tour to co-incide with Greatest Hits release.‏

FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND hit the road in the UK this autumn to support the release of ‘Your History Is Mine: 2002-2009’, a collection of their classic tracks that brings us right up to date with the inclusion of 4 new songs.

‘It’ll be quite a nice change to go out on tour and not have to concentrate on representing our latest album, instead putting together a set that represents all our best material from day one until now’, says drummer/vocalist Ryan Richards. ‘It’ll be great to do some B-sides and rare stuff too that we’ve maybe not had time to fit in the set in the past. It makes a lot more sense to include those songs now that we have a whole CD of rarities and B-sides coming out, and some of those songs will probably never be played after this tour either. The most exciting thing for us though, is getting out and playing brand new stuff for the first time. Especially since it’s the first material we’ve written with Gav in the band. It’ll be a nice trip down memory lane, as well as a peek into the future of the FFAF.’
