The nine track EP will serve as an expansion to their 'Welcome Home Armageddon' album, released earlier this year. 'See You All In Hell' will include one brand new song 'High Castles' as well as a selection of live, acoustic and cover songs. It will be released digitally and on CD on 7th November. The release will also coincide with a vinyl edition of 'Welcome Home Armageddon' which will include a CD insert of 'See You All In Hell'.
The band say of the release: "We wanted to release something special as an add-on to 'Welcome Home Armageddon' and we've got some different versions of tracks from the record on there in the form of live, acoustic and a remix by our friend LoveGadgetsHateGizmos.
"It was a lot of fun to throw in a Strife cover as we've all grown up as massive fans of that band. We were really eager to get back into the studio and write the follow up to 'Welcome Home Armageddon' and I think 'High Castles' is good indication of where we'll be taking things on the next record."
To top off their already brilliant 2011, Funeral For a Friend will be hitting the road in October for a run of headline dates with support from Escape The Fate, The Amity Affliction, The Bunny The Bear and Straight Lines. FFAF have also been shortlisted for the Inaugural Welsh Music Prize alongside such acts as The Joy Formidable, Manic Street Preachers and The Blackout.
