Awesome post-hardcore band from the UK. They have a new album coming out on October 13th called Memory and Humanity.

MySpace (http://www.myspace.com/funeralforafriend)

Discography:

Casually Dressed And Deep In Conversation

Hours

Tales Don't Tell Themselves


EDIT: New Album - Memory And Humanity (http://www.sendspace.com/file/bwy96e)

CDADIC and Hours were both great post-hardcore albums, while TDTT was a departure from their previous sound and was more of an alternative rock concept album, though still very good. They've since left Atlantic Records, and have created their own label "Join Us" Records, which the new album is being released on. It was produced by the same guy who did their first album, and has been described by the band as sounding more like their first two albums.

Some songs from the upcoming album:

Waterfront Dance Club (http://www.sendspace.com/file/bpowyy)

Kicking and Screaming (http://www.sendspace.com/file/b9x0jq)

Constant Illuminations (http://www.sendspace.com/file/gkf27h)

I generally hate saying this, but they really sold out.

Meh, I thought so too when I listened to "Tales Don't Tell Themselves", but that's why they left Atlantic and started their own label. They didn't like the direction Atlantic was pushing them. If you listen to their new songs, they sound a lot more like their older stuff (CDADIC, Hours).

Really? Their latest single sounds like something off Tales...

Which one, Waterfront Dance Club? I don't think it sounds like something off of TDTT at all. But, listen to "Constant Illuminations". If you liked their old stuff, I'm pretty sure you'll like that one. "Wolves" is really good too.

I was talking about Kicking and Screaming, which seems like the softer side of the album.

In fairness though, those other songs you mentioned don't seem to compare with the older stuff such as This Years Most Open Heartbreak, Bend Your Arms To Look Like Wings and Rookie Of The Year....

Yeah, I agree, none of those songs compare to CDADIC, but they're a step back in the right direction.

Yeah, they're heading in the right direction. 3 albums time they might be a decent band again.

Posted a link to download the new album. It's really good so far. The heavy riffs are back.

It is good, but don't go into it expecting something along the lines CDADIC or Hours, or you'll be disappointed. It's just a really good straight up rock album.
