This Condition has announced their farewell. They will be performing two final shows (April 19 Toquet Hall Westport CT, April 28 Highline Ballroom NYC) and disbanding. On a good note, the band will also be releasing a new record on April 23, 2013.
It's not easy to write this message. We can't begin to express how grateful we are for the support that we have received over the past 6 years. Yeah... 6 years.

We played our first show in March of 2007 at a venue called Noche Blue on Long Island. We had no clue what we were doing or where this band would take us. Fast forward to 2013 and we have played more than 250 shows in 40 states. We've been lucky enough to open for some of our musical...

Fun. put some songs up on Noisetrade.
Before "We Are Young," Some Nights and a Best New Artist Grammy, there was Aim & Ignite, an ambitious ten track album from three friends called fun. Produced by Steven McDonald (Redd Kross, OFF!), Aim & Ignite was heralded as the "the most essential pop album of 2009" by Absolutepunk.net. This four song collection features a studio track from Aim & Ignite, a live rendition of "Take Your Time (Coming Home), a b-side, and a remix of "Walking The Dog" from the RAC collective.

In a new interview Funeral For a Friend get pretty honest about their albums.
I probably would have shelved “Memory and Humanity” and released “Tales Don’t Tell Themselves” under a different band name.

A&O vocalist Luis Hernandez said they are working on ten new songs and going about recording them "… in a new way, taking it one day at a time. We're recording guitar, bass and vocals for a different song every day and making sure each song gets the right amount of attention." He continued, "I can't wait for people to hear these new songs. I love our past two records but these songs have something different about them. The writing and recording processes are so different from what we are used to and have...

The winner of this contest will receive 2 tickets to the show, VIP access to hang out before and meet Erik, and a signed copy of Erik's new album, Technical Foul: Volume One.

We have another great exclusive on the site today, as we're streaming a brand new song from Philadelphia punk band, Restorations. The song is "Quit," and it's a chunky, slow-burn type of song that shows off Jon Loudon's deep vocals. It's off the band's upcoming Side One Dummy debut, LP2. You can stream the song over at the band's AP.net profile or in the replies. I have a feeling that if you really dug the vibes of The Menzingers in 2012, then you'll really enjoy this band and album. If you like the song, make sure to pre-order the album here.
