  FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND SET FOR NEW RELEASES AND UK TOUR
17th October 2011

funeral for a friend high castles



Funeral For A Friend have been busy working on new material and the first new track to be unveiled since this year's critically acclaimed (and Inaugral Welsh Music Prize-nominated) 'Welcome Home Armageddon' album can now be heard below.

The brand new single 'High Castles' will be released as part of the band's 'See You All In Hell' EP on 7th November, following their headline tour of the UK. Full details and dates below.

The nine track EP will serve as an expansion to their 'Welcome Home Armageddon' album, released earlier this year. 'See You All In Hell' will include one brand new song 'High Castles' as well as a selection of live, acoustic and cover songs. It will be released digitally and on CD on 7th November. The release will also coincide with a vinyl edition of 'Welcome Home Armageddon' which will include a CD insert of 'See You All In Hell'.

The band say of the release: "We wanted to release something special as an add-on to 'Welcome Home Armageddon' and we've got some different versions of tracks from the record on there in the form of live, acoustic and a remix by our friend LoveGadgetsHateGizmos.

"It was a lot of fun to throw in a Strife cover as we've all grown up as massive fans of that band. We were really eager to get back into the studio and write the follow up to 'Welcome Home Armageddon' and I think 'High Castles' is good indication of where we'll be taking things on the next record."

To top off their already brilliant 2011, Funeral For a Friend will be hitting the road in October for a run of headline dates with support from Escape The Fate, The Amity Affliction, The Bunny The Bear and Straight Lines. FFAF have also been shortlisted for the Inaugural Welsh Music Prize alongside such acts as The Joy Formidable, Manic Street Preachers and The Blackout.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
