Funeral for a Friend was founded in early 2002 in Wales. Already in August 2002 the first EP "Between Order And Model"isreleased on Swanseas Mighty Atom Records, produced by Joe Gibb, who already worked together with Janeu's AddictionandLeftfield.

Warner Music took notice of the effort, and signed the band in early 2003 on their sub-label Infectious Records. On April03the second EP "Four ways to scream your name" was released, and tours together with BoySetsFire and Lostprophetsfollow.Already in October 03 the first LP "Casually dressed and deep in conversation" is released, after the re. release of the'Fourways to scream your name' EP, that featured three additional songs that appeared on 'Cd&dc.

The band's second album "Hours" was released in 2005 to good reception, though some fans expressed disappointment atthelack of screaming vocals and more sombre mood throughout the record.

The band's third studio album entitled "Tales Don't Tell Themselves" was released in May 2007. Mostly a concept classic rock album, this alienated many of the bands fans but shown that the band were not afraid to step outside the shell the public had created for them.

On October 13th and 26th in the UK and US respectively, the bands fourth album "Memory and Humanity" was released. This album, like Tales Don't Tell Themselves, also featured a more Alternative Rock based sound. The band then released a greatest hits album, 'Your History Is Mine' in September 2009, which featured 4 new songs which harkened back to the bands earlier Post Hardcore sound while still having elements of the Alternative Rock sound they used on 'Memory and Humanity'.

In late 2010, they released the 'Young and Defenceless' EP, which was followed by a new album, 'Welcome Home Armageddon' in March 2011. These releases featured Funeral returning to their earlier Post Hardcore sound. The band continued this direction with their 2013 album 'Conduit', which still kept elements of the bands sound, but with more of a Hardcore Punk influence. « hide
