Welsh boys Funeral For A Friend headed out on a full headline UK tour, with support from Exeter’s finest I Divide and Americans Major League and Such Gold. Vulture Hound caught them at White Rabbit where they played to a sold out venue.
Exeter band I Divide did their best to involve the audience; however, hardly anyone joined in with their synchronised moves, which is a real shame. A lot of new material was performed to a good standard but we would have liked more from their EP What’s Worth More as the crowd could have then sung the lyrics back to them.
Even though this is their first UK tour, Major League impressed the audience with their stage presence, which created a good vibe. Lead vocalist; Nick Trask, showed his passion for his bands’ music and creativity making Major League a good band with great energy.
Such Gold are very similar to Major League when considering stage presence and music tastes, however, Such Gold have slightly more edge compared to previous support tonight. They got people to enjoy themselves, whereas Major League and I Divide didn’t seem to have that power.
Cheers roared throughout the venue as Funeral For A Friend unleashed their influence onto the very willing crowd. Circle pits, stage dives and crowd surfing. Tongiht had everything. The band as a whole were really well received throughout and as History came to a close, pretty much every individual were shouting back the lyrics that’s means so much to them and is considered an emotional strong single.
Taking the time to talk to fans and receiving overwhelming responses Funeral For A Friend didn’t know what to say but thank you. I Divide are something very special and should be nurtured, Major League and Such Gold were different but in a good way and Funeral For A Friend, what can we say, incredible!
