Funeral Party




New group on the LA scene. Big shout to Zach Jukel doing his thing out at Song Records... 


Funeral Party formed late one night in a park in Whittier, California, an East Los Angeles suburb comprised of mostly working-class enclaves. Hardcore bands and metal bands dominated the local music scene at the time. However, in the East Los Angeles neighborhoods adjacent to Whittier, a post-punk, dance-craze revival was emerging and Funeral Party began gigging every weekend. The band quickly developed a following. Initially, they didn’t own any equipment and had to borrow it from other bands at East L.A. backyard parties and warehouses. Funeral Party's DIY ethos mobilized their ascendancy from an erratic underground scene to the international stage


Funeral Party just released their debut album The Golden Age Of Knowhere and have been blowing up across the globe. They were recently named one of Alternative Press’ 100 Bands to watch in 2011. Fresh off a U.S. tour with the Deftones, the New York Post proclaimed that they “couldn’t have been more impressed by the rocking foursome” and the Los Angeles Times declares them “a ravenously physical and technically precise live act.”
