I hope you all like listening as much as we liked playing and recording it!”
“Way before I joined Funeral I interviewed BoySetsFire for a zine I started. I asked them about their process of recording their split with Coalesce and what it was like to cover their songs,” adds FFAF vocalist Matt Davies-Kreye. “Now to be in a position where we get to put out a split 7″ with them and have them cover one of our songs, I would have never seen that coming. I’m so excited for people to hear this record.”
