Video of the Moment #1681: Funeral for a Friend

By on Tuesday, 18th November 2014 at 6:00 pm

Funeral for a Friend have revealed a new song from their forthcoming album ‘Chapter and Verse’. ‘1%’ tackles the very real issue of the hard-working people of the world being downtrodden in this depressed economy. Frontman Matthew Davies-Kreye explains:

The idea for the track came from watching the news reports around and after the financial crisis hit; the anger at the banks and financial institutions that lined their own pockets off the backs of the hard working average individual. Theft at the highest level, no sense of remorse, even in the wake of exposure. Hand outs, bonuses, pay increases… It’s like someone rubbing egg in the face of the honest, hard working people who struggle, sometimes with two jobs, raising a family and only just being able to make ends meet.

‘Chapter and Verse’ will be released on the 19th of January 2015. Watch the powerful video for ‘1%’ below. To read our past coverage on Funeral for a Friend on TGTF, go here.
