There are multiple artists with the name Funeral Party:

(1) Funeral Party is a four-piece band that formed one night in a Whittier, CA park in 2005. Initially, the band didn’t even own equipment and had to borrow it from bands they played with at East Los Angeles backyard parties and warehouses. Lars Stalfors, engineer for The Mars Volta, invited the band to record in the Volta’s studio in East L.A. The sessions yielded “Chalice”. They are currently signed to RCA Records.

Download Festival announces 14 new bands; pub talk reveals 1 more?

April 21st, 2010

Download Festival has announced Suicidal Tendencies, Skin (the band or the woman? We don’t really know – or for that matter care), Genitorturers, Killing For Company, Godsized, Max Raptor, The Morning After, Ben Poole, Funeral Party, Imicus, The Humour, The Dead Lay Waiting, T-34 and esOterica have all been added to their line-up for Donington this summer. About half of those bands will be playing on The Red Bull Bedroom Jam Stage (aka The Tiny Shitty Fourth Stage), which is hardly surprising considering most of them are A) tiny, and B) shitty.

Apparently The Plight are confirmed for the festival as well. We got that little tidbit in a pub last weekend though when we were a fair few pints in, rather than cribbing it off a press release, so who knows if that’s legit or not?
