Holding Absence have been announced as support for the last to be announced Funeral For A Friend reunion show at Cardiff’s Y Plas on the 27th October. The Welsh post hardcore heroes are reforming for three shows in support of Stuart Brothers, a lifelong fan who has recently been diagnosed with terminal illness.
Vocalist Lucas Woodland comments: ‘We’re ecstatic to announce that we’ll be playing with Funeral For A Friend for the first of their 3 comeback shows. Being a post-hardcore band from South Wales we owe everything to FFAF, and never thought we’d get the honour of playing alongside them. It’s for a really special cause too, which says a lot about the character of this wonderful band, and the people inside it. We can’t wait!’
27/10 – Y Plas, Cardiff (Support from Holding Absence and Wallflower)
28/10 – Y Plas, Cardiff (Support from Raiders and Pay The Man)
29/10 – O2 Shepherds Bush Empire, London (Support from Raiders and Those Damn Crows)
