Funeral For A Friend's new studio album will be "very different", according to their new drummer Pat Lundy.

It was revealed on Tuesday (May 22) that the Welsh rockers have parted ways with long-time drummer Ryan Richards after 10 years and that Lundy, who had previously drummed with Rise To Remain, was joining in his place.

Lundy, who makes his debut with the band at this weekend's Slam Dunk Festival double header in Leeds and Hatfield, has confirmed that he will play on the band's new album, which is the follow-up to their 2011 album 'Welcome Home Armageddon' and is due for release later this year.

Asked about the band's progress in creating a new album, Lundy said: "I'm writing my parts at the moment; I'll be going in to record after we play Slam Dunk festival. The guys have finished their tracking now and I'll be going in to start the drums soon. It's an honour to be involved in a Funeral record."

Then asked how the record differed from 'Welcome Home Armageddon' and the band's other records, the drummer promised it would be a "lot heavier and a lot more current".

He added: "From what I've heard it's going to be incredible. It's very different from the previous Funeral records. Matt's doing things that he's never done before vocally. He's exploring more than ever now and it's really paying off. The vocals are huge."
