POZ Interview: Funeral For A Friend

by Zack Zarrillo - Jan 10, 2013

image

PropertyOfZack spoke with Matt Davies of Funeral For A Friend not too long ago for a great interview. Matt and I discussed getting into writing a new album a little early, the process for the band’s new record, recording with a new drummer, where Funeral would like to head with the next record, and much more. Pre-order the band’s new album here heck it all out below!

Welcome Home Armageddon in March of 2011, but the band starting writing for Conduit at the beginning of the New Year - less than a year after WHA's release. Did you feel there was more to be said?
Not sure, it just felt right. We had gotten into writing mode back in the summer of 2011 and we came up with High Castles so if anything it was just a natural progression. 
 
Critics responded well to the last record, and fans seemed to as well. Were you happy with the overall cycle for the album?
Yeah, it was great. Ideally we would have liked to have toured more places overseas (especially mainland Europe) but we’re getting stuck into it when the new record comes out. 
 
What was the general feeling heading into the writing process for Conduit
In terms of ideas it was really positive we had a sense of direction leading off from High Castles and we just poured our energy into making something that pushed our heavier, faster more hardcore influences out there as we all felt that it’s what we’re best at. Obviously we knew going into the writing that Ryan wasn’t going to be in the band after the record so that obviously had an impact on how certain things were done in terms of song parts etc. 
 
Were there major changes from Armageddon?
If anything the biggest change is that there isn’t a ‘slow’ song on the record. It wasn’t deliberate we just didn’t write one. Apart from that ‘Conduit’ is even more direct than Armageddon and more focused in terms of sound. 

Can you talk about the recording process for the new record?
The recording process was more relaxed in certain ways, I think that was down to the fact that we all knew what we wanted out of our own performances. Working with Romesh Dodangoda again allowed us to be more open with each other so we could really capture the energy of these songs. All the vocals were pretty much done in two to three takes all in one go which was something I wanted. I didn’t want there to be a separation between aggressive and melodic vocals so that was important. 

What was it like tracking with Pat Lundy for the first time? And what did he add to the equation?
Pat is like a machine, he’s my idea of the ideal drummer. He can play pretty much anything and it shows on this record, the energy, the aggression made these songs feel more urgent and in your face than before. He’s such a sweet natured guy but he hits the crap out of his drums which makes playing live even more fun for us.
