Released as a special add-on to Funeral For A Friend's latest album, 'Welcome Home Armageddon', this EP, although comprising one new track, a cover song, a couple of acoustic numbers, a remixed track and four tracks from a live radio station session, is a welcome addition the band's backcatalogue.
The one original track is 'High Castles', a good, solid number with vocalist Matthew Davies-Kreye showing his worth - not to mention a great, beefy sound from the rest of the band.

Track 2 finds them covering 'Will I Do' by LA hardcore punk band Strife. The track originally appeared on Strife's second album, 'In This Defiance', and this is a very credible version of the song.
'Sixteen', 'Broken Foundation', 'Man Alive' and 'Front Row Seats To The End Of The World' are all represented here as live tracks taken from a live session at XFM Radio, and are all very solid performances.
The EP closes with two excellent renditions of tracks from this year's full-length album, which proves that Funeral For A Friend do acoustic very well indeed.
This release coincides with a vinyl release of the aforementioned 'Welcome Home Armageddon', which will also include a CD version of 'See You All in Hell'.
