In 2003, Welsh emo-core legends Funeral For A Friend released their first full length album Casually Dressed And Deep In Conversation.
Ten years on: the album is being repressed on double gate-fold vinyl, for Record Store Day 2013 on April 20th.
The album included the classic singles: Juneau (formally ‘Juno’), Bullet Theory, She Drove Me To Daytime TV and escape Artists Never Die.
Front-man Matt Davies had this to say:
“As hard as it is to believe that it’s been ten years since we stepped into the recording studio to lay down what was our first record, it’s also hard to believe just how far we’ve come as a band, staying true to the idea we had when we started out and happily stepping into another decade of making the music we love. We’re extremely happy that Atlantic Records are helping us celebrate the ten year anniversary of Casually Dressed and Deep in Conversation by re-issuing it on exclusive, limited, beautiful colour vinyl ready for Record Store Day on Saturday April 20th. So make sure you get down to your local record store early to secure your copies because once they’re gone, they’re gone!”
FUN FACT: drummer Ryan Richards is seen wearing a My Chemical Romance t-shirt in the sleeve notes, 2 years before their rise in popularity.
