After nearly six years away from acting, Jared Leto steps back into the spotlight in Dallas Buyers Club.
Named one of the “50 Best New Bands of 2010” according to NME, Funeral Party is set to take 2011 by storm with the U.S. release of their debut album, The Golden Age of Knowhere, due out March 29.
Produced by Lars Stalfors (The Mars Volta) and mixed by Dave Sardy (Oasis), the energentic 11-song album will release it’s first single, “Finale” to radio in March. The song serves as a great introduction for those who are first time listeners.
While fans await the release of The Golden Age of Knowhere, the band is set to release an EP, Live At The BBC on January 25. Included on the live EP are three exclusive remixes by Dave Sitek, Mike Relm, and Kids of 88. Additionally, a limited edition vinyl version of their upcoming U.S. debut will be released February 15.
After touring with 30 Seconds To Mars overseas last year, Funeral Party is heading out on the road again this spring. The Los Angeles Times referred to the band as a, “ravenously physical, technically precise and impossibly fun live act.”
