Back when Funeral For A Friend were first exploding all over magazine covers, music video channels and on posters across teeangers rooms with their debut ‘Casually Dressed & Deep In Conversation’, the band were branded with the tag of ’emo’. This was something they almost detested being pigeon-holed into, but across the years and after several releases FFAF definitely broke out of that tag. But this time around they’re coming back to their roots, on a tour playing the entirety of the album that got them what they dreamed about in the beginning.
The rumbles of sound could be heard upon entering the venue from openers Young Guns (**), who I had never really paid any interest to, and tonight was the same. They weren’t all that amazing, definitely not as much as Kerrang! and any other UK rock magazine seems to be peddling them as these days. Temptation to go off and have a mooch before the main act was very powering, but I knew that the venue was going to pack up even more after each of the three supports acts had been on, so I decided to keep my place.
