Funeral For A Friend will release a very special mini album on October 15th through Atlantic Records. Entitled ‘The Great Wide Open‘, it will include the track of the same name from the ‘Tales Don’t Tell Themselves‘ album as well as the video that is currently in rotation but also 8 classic live tracks – the 1st 2 EPs ‘Between Order & Model‘ and ‘Four Ways To Scream Your Name‘ – in full recorded live at the Barfly in London in August this year. These tracks are not available anywhere else and are exclusive to this release.

The mini album will be available at all usual retailers and we will be posting a presale link later this week for advance orders.

Warped Tour 2007 was a hit and I was able to snap some shots of a few bands that I seen. Some of the quality of the pictures are poor, but this was due to the extreme heat and the amazingly aggressive crowd in Detroit, MI. So without further adeu here of some pictures:

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Element Eighty

Hometown: Tyler, Texas
Genre: Metal, Rock, Alternative
Sounds like: Edgewater, Dark New Day, Earshot
Current Album: The Bear
Myspace: myspace.com/elementeighty
Official Site: texascries.com

Element Eighty has a distinct sound that rocks. I know that may sound cliche, but it’s a given truth. They vocal ranges from a collective mellow voice to an earth shattering roar. Make sure to check out their self-titled album as well as The Bear. Favorite songs of mine include Texas Cries, Broken Promises, and Scars.
