Funeral For A Friend - Funeral For A Friend's Drummer Quits

Welsh rockers Funeral For A Friend have stunned fans by announcing the departure of their longtime drummer.
Ryan Richards decided to leave the Walk Away hitmakers to focus on his family life, and the band has already signed up Pat Lundy to take over his duties.
Richards says, "After 10 wonderful, enriching, emotional and fascinating years being a part of Funeral for a Friend - I've decided to hang up my drum sticks. I've always put music first in my life - but the time has come now for my family to take the top spot, after patiently waiting and supporting me for the last 10 years and more.
"I'm stoked to have my good friend Pat Lundy step into my vacant drumstool. There's not a better drummer than Pat for the job."
Vocalist Matthew Davies-Kreye adds, "We give Ryan our full support and wish him the best in his future endeavours."
Lundy will make his first appearance with the band at the U.K.'s Slam Dunk Festival this weekend (26-27May12).
