East LA three-piece Funeral Party are pleased to announce a full UK tour for early next year in support of the release of their eagerly awaited debut album "The Golden Age Of Knowhere" on January 24th 2011 through Jive Records, the album will be pre-empted by the brilliant single "Finale" a week prior on January 17th.
The trio formed late one night in a park in their hometown of Whittier, California, an East Los Angeles suburb comprised of mostly working-class enclaves. A post-punk dance- craze revival was emerging and Funeral Party began gigging every weekend drawing more than 800 kids at random backyards across East Los Angeles. Quickly achieving a mythic status in the LA underground, Funeral Party attracted the attentions of Lars Stalfors, engineer for Mars Volta, who invited the band to record in Volta's studio.
The Funeral Party phenomenon is already creeping onto our shores after the bands first two singles took the UK by storm. With early playlist adds from Radio 1, 6 Music, Kerrang and XFM, as well as grabbing press attention across the board means the trio have firmly established themselves as ones to watch for the future.
Funeral Party are set to take 2011 by storm, they
dismiss any attempts at categorization, and have created a visceral music that encapsulates experiences of youth universally.
