Well – if you’re already familiar with Pledge through The Young And Defenceless EP then we’d like to say a huge THANK YOU to you. You helped us make that EP and we were overwhelmed with the support it received. We’re so happy with the EP and feeling right now about as at the top of our game as we’ve ever felt.

So what next? THE ALBUM! The whole process around the EP and the freedom that working with Pledge and you guys gave us was so liberating that we’re inspired to do it again! It feels like the momentum we started with Memory And Humanity and then continued with TYAD in terms of retaining control about how we make the record, and then how we choose to release it has started something we don’t want to stop right now. And you are a big part of that. So thank you! And read on…

As you’ll already know if you’re following us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/funeralforafriend), Twitter (www.twitter.com/ffaf / @ffaf) or any of the other community sites we’re pretty much on fire right now. We’ve just gone back into the studio with Romesh Dodangoda to start work on the album and continue the good work we started on the EP. And you know what – it’s still sounding awesome. We promised you that the fruits of our demoing labours with Rich now fully integrated into Funeral 3.0 would extend beyond the EP and that is happening right now, actually as you read this.

So again, if you want to get involved and be part of helping us make this record, you’re in the right place. We’ve honed the list of ways you can get involved in this project and you can check out the list on the right. We feel like pros at this now and we’ve taken everything we learnt from running the EP project and poured it into this – so we hope you like.

For those new to the Pledge system it’s a very cool way of getting you closer to the action as we record the album. You can opt to get a copy of the record or something a little more special – exactly with the EP. There are some different ideas here this time, loads of ways for you to get stuck in.

As with the EP, we’ll be posting Pledger-only updates here throughout the period and as before if you’re part of it you’ll have access to those. It’s the only place you’ll find them – we won’t be posting these to any of the blogs or to YouTube etc.

As a final note, a percentage of any profits from this project will be donated to charity, and we’ve chosen to support the Ty Hafan hospice which cares for children with limited life span. It’s a hugely worthy cause. Choosing to support Ty Hafan is our choice, not our managers, PledgeMusic’s or anyone else’s.

So stoked for this record.

Love

Matthew, Ryan, Kris, Gav & Rich
