Welsh post-hardcore heroes FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND have announced, that after a 15 year career, they will be breaking up.

In a statement, frontman Matthew Davies-Kreye, says “It’s the natural end. We’ve done everything we set out to do and way more than I could ever have hoped so I’m not upset that it’s run its course, We all felt that Chapter And Verse was a pretty decent full stop on an incredible fourteen and half years of making music together.”

“So, how do you celebrate a huge part of your life? You play some shows! For me it seemed obvious to go out with both Hours and Casually Dressed.. I feel that both those records distill what Funeral is to a whole load of people more definitively than just piecing together a set from all the records we’ve made. It seems to me that those are the records that matter most and Hours to me is my proudest achievement in music with Funeral. I don’t know why but it fills me with an overwhelming sense of pride.”

The Last Chance To Dance tour will feature FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND performing two shows in every city they play, with each show featuring both Hours and Casually Dressed and Deep In Conversation performed in their respective entirety.
