Funeral Diner

Funeral Diner formed in 1998 in Half Moon Bay, CA and currently lives in San Francisco. They would probably describe their band as “screamy, chaotic, melodic hardcore” but would prefer to just let the music speak for itself. They’ve released a ton of records, including multiple split LP’s and 7”s, 2002’s Difference Of Potential full-length, and The Wicked EP, recently re-released on Alone Records. They’ve also been graced with the amazing opportunity to tour the US and Europe multiple times, as well as Japan. The new Funeral Diner album is called The Underdark. The songs were written specifically for the album, as opposed to simply being a collection of unrelated material; with the hope that the finished product would have a more cohesive feel throughout. Musically, it’s more spread out, with longer songs and some new sounds, combined with the usual abrasive, screaming assault. The lyrics address the contradictions and personal conflicts that arise from living within a society in decline. In spring of 2005, Funeral Diner toured for three and a half months, across the US, Europe, and Japan.
