Funeral For A Friend to release limited edition EP for pledgers

Funeral For A Friend have announced that they will release a special brand new limited EP to fans, but only those who pledge and help towards the cost of hitting the studio.

They will be looking ahead to a brand new album but they want to give something special to fans who support the band.

In return for pledges of set amounts, you can receive signed copies of the EP, special access to shows, live performances in your house, guitar lessons and more.

Releasing Your History Is Mine was a watershed moment for Funeral For A Friend. It marked the end of one era, 4 albums of which we’re incredibly proud, countless tours in every corner of the world from Swansea to Singapore, Nottingham to New York, Manchester to Moscow and Tyneside to Tokyo.

We wrote and recorded 4 new tunes with Gav for that album that made us incredibly excited for what this year and the future holds for this band. Wrench received the best reactions from Radio 1 in the UK that this band has ever had. We played some amazing shows and had the best time talking about the record and hearing stories from people that have been with us ever since Casually Dressed, and even Four Ways and BOAM before that. It’s a privilege to have your support.

2010 marks the start of new times. Good new times. And most importantly, those times involve you. As you’ll already know if you’ve been following us on Twitter (@ffaf / www.twitter.com/ffaf) or checking out the MySpace or Facebook pages we’re deep in the middle of hatching plans and writing and demoing lots of new music. Back to basics. It’s truly sounding awesome. Some of it will end up on an album. But before that album sees the light of day we’re going to be releasing a BRAND NEW EP and circumventing the usual method of hooking up with a label, delivering it to them, waiting and then letting them put it out. We’re going to carry through with what we started with Memory & Humanity and put it out ourselves – except this time things are different because we’re bypassing all the bullshit and making it cool, limited and especially for you.

If you want to get involved and be part of helping us make this record, you’re in the right place. We’ll be recording, mixing and releasing it starting in June and you’re invited. Check out the list of Pledges to see the ways you can get involved and get your hands on the music. There are tons. By Pledging you can ensure that you get a copy of the record as soon as it’s out plus whatever else you choose to get involved in. If you only want the music that’s cool. But if you want to get more involved, we can do that too. If you want to get on Skype for a chat we can do that. If you want to come to a rehearsal we can sort that. There’s lots more, check it out.

Remember, this will be a limited edition release, not available in the usual shops, and once it’s gone, it’s gone.

We’ll be posting Pledger-only updates here throughout the period and if you’re part of it you’ll have access to those. It’s the only place you’ll find them – we won’t be posting these to any of the blogs or to YouTube etc.

As a final note, 10% of any profits from this Pledge release will be donated to charity, and we’ve chosen a couple of our favourites to nominate. PETA (www.peta.org.uk), Teenage Cancer Trust (www.teenagecancertrust.org), the Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity (www.rainbowtrust.org.uk). These have been chosen by us, not by our management, by Pledge or by anyone else.

Thanks for your love and support for the past 7 years and we hope that you’re on for the ride on the next 7.

Love

Matthew, Ryan, Kris, Gav & Rich
