Funeral For A Friend blast through set at Carling Weekend: Reading

Welsh rockers tear it up in the afternoon sun despite a few technical problems

Funeral For A Friend stormed through their afternoon set today (august 26) at Carling Weekend: Reading.

Opening with ‘Into Oblivion’, the Welsh quintet demanded a “colossal circle pit” in the crowd, who sang along to every word.

Technical difficulties forced the band to temporarily halt their set, prompting singer Matt Davies to joke “He’s got a dead guitar and I forgot the lyrics on the last song. Welcome to the Funeral For A Friend experience!”

Funeral For A Friend played:

‘Into Oblivion’

‘All The Rage’

‘Roses For The Dead’

‘She Drove Me To Daytime Television’

‘End Of Nothing’

‘The Great Wide Open’


‘Raise The Sail’

‘This Year’s Most Open Heartbreak’

‘Out Of Reach’


‘Escape Artists Never Die’
