The Funeral Pyre issues update
Official press release: Southern California's The Funeral Pyre has issued an in-depth update on the band's plans for 2008. Posted on the band's new blog page, fans can check out a full update here. "We'll be playing very select amounts of shows until the new year," writes the band's frontman. "But in January, we will be doing 9 shows with Book Of Black Earth from Seattle. So you can keep checking back for the dates on that. After that, we'll be recording the new record. So please do not ask us to play any shows for a while. We need a break. Just keep checking back for the dates in January." "The title I have been kicking around for this third record is 'Wounds'," he continues. "I'm not sure how you people will react to this, but, it's not really bothering me. I feel that this title sums up the lyrical content to a T...Which is what I am excited about. We are finishing songs, playing them live and fine tuning what will be the third installment in The Funeral Pyre career of metal. It's been a long time already, to think that we're already on our third record!? Nobody would have ever guessed we'd be here. I mean, we're not popular or anything, but hey, I like to think that we've accomplished a lot! If you have heard any of the new songs live, I'd really enjoy if you could give us some feedback about what you thought of them. These songs will be different than 'The Nature Of Betrayal' but yet the same...It's a big cycle we go through, you hear the same music, but it sounds different. How does that work? I'm not quite sure, but you will find out in 2008." The band continues to support its Prosthetic Records debut, 'The Nature of Betrayal' which saw a February 2007 re-release through a distribution deal with Creator Destructor Records. The Funeral Pyre recently returned from tour with the Bay Area punk/metal band Apiary after a two week tour of the West Coast.
