On Friday, post-hardcore / emotional rock band The Funeral Portrait released a new song titled “The Crash” and shared a music video to go along with the song, which can be seen above. The video begins with an explosive live performance from the band, with headbanging to go along with distorted guitars, before cutting to a sinister card game and other haunting imagery. Though the band members are flanked in golden light, there’s nothing sunny about this video, and the effect feels more menacing than anything else.
The Funeral Portrait consists of Lee Jennings on vocals, Mikey J on guitar, Robert Weston on bass, and Homer on drums. They’ve been a band since late 2014 but already have numerous tours under their belts with everyone from Alesana to Capture The Crown to Davey Suicide, and they’ve also shared the stage with acts like Issues, PVRIS, and Escape The Fate.
“The Crash” comes as the first single following The Funeral Portrait‘s debut full-length album A Moment Of Silence, which was released on December 16th, 2016 on Revival Recordings. If you enjoyed the song, be sure to catch them on the rest of their tour with Emery, Civilian, Loyals, and In Your Memory!
