Funeral For A Friend Take Fightstar Under Their Wing

Charlie Simpson spoke with in a Q&A, where the Fightstar frontman talked about how important it was to hook up with Funeral For A Friend on tour earlier this year as they worked on their second album ‘One Day Son, This Will All Be Yours’. “Those guys have been so amazing,” the 22-year-old said. “We toured with them this year for two months in the US, and we’d had a bit of trouble mixing our album, because we were on the road while mixing it, which turned out to be a pretty stupid thing to do. So every day we’d be getting new mixes through and if we weren’t happy with them, we’d have to send them back and it turned out to be a pretty tricky thing to do. But we were sharing a bus with Funeral and they really helped out, they’d listen to all the tunes and give their advice. They kind of took us under the wing.” The full story at has since been removed.
