THERE’S NO FUNERAL PYRE WITHOUT “FUN” (EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE OF “PERSONAL EXILE”!)
The Funeral Pyre damn near blew my 3 Inches of Blood Nike Hi-Tops off at the MetalSucks-sponsored Prosthetic Records SXSW showcase in March. Just the right combo of black, crust and metal mixed with just the right combo of Lone Star and weed made for a performance that felt unforgettable in the moment but inevitably grew kinda hazy as the night wore on due to said combo of Lone Star and weed. My level of blackout-edness during The Funeral Pyre’s set wasn’t close to what it would be when I took the stage to MC a guitar giveaway; at least I remember seeing The Funeral Pyre. And I’ll tell you this: these guys put on an incredibly powerful performance, and it was definitely one of the best of the evening.
The Funeral Pyre will release their new record Vultures At Dawn on June 8th via the always dependable Prosthetic Records. Stream the fifth track from that record, “Personal Exile,” below. Stay tuned to their MySpace page for pre-order info and tour dates as they become available.
