Funeral Party – Finale


East LA three-piece Funeral Party are pleased to announce a full UK tour for early next year in support of the release of their eagerly awaited debut album The Golden Age Of Knowhere on January 24th 2011 through Jive Records. But before all that kicks off, the album will be pre-empted by the brilliant single ‘Finale’

Not up on Funeral Party? The trio formed late one night in a park in their hometown of Whittier, California, an East Los Angeles suburb comprised of mostly working-class enclaves. A post-punk dance- craze revival was emerging and Funeral Party began gigging every weekend drawing more than 800 kids at random backyards across East Los Angeles. Quickly achieving a mythic status in the LA underground, Funeral Party attracted the attentions of Lars Stalfors, engineer for Mars Volta, who invited the band to record in Volta’s studio.
