Video of the Moment #1681: Funeral for a Friend

By on Tuesday, 18th November 2014 at 6:00 pm

Funeral for a Friend have revealed a new song from their forthcoming album ‘Chapter and Verse’. ‘1%’ tackles the very real issue of the hard-working people of the world being downtrodden in this depressed economy. Frontman Matthew Davies-Kreye explains:

The idea for the track came from watching the news reports around and after the financial crisis hit; the anger at the banks and financial institutions that lined their own pockets off the backs of the hard working average individual. Theft at the highest level, no sense of remorse, even in the wake of exposure. Hand outs, bonuses, pay increases… It’s like someone rubbing egg in the face of the honest, hard working people who struggle, sometimes with two jobs, raising a family and only just being able to make ends meet.

‘Chapter and Verse’ will be released on the 19th of January 2015. Watch the powerful video for ‘1%’ below. To read our past coverage on Funeral for a Friend on TGTF, go here.

Live Gig Video: Paul Noonan and wife Amy perform Printer Clips’ charity single ‘Hole in Her Heart’ on The Late Late Show

By on Tuesday, 18th November 2014 at 4:00 pm

Bell X1‘s Paul Noonan, who has been recording with his musician friends under the solo project title Printer Clips, has released a brand new duet with his with Amy Van Den Broek. This time though, it’s for a very worthy cause and comes directly as a result from their own experience. The couple’s daughter Aislinn was hospitalised at Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin, Ireland’s largest paediatric hospital, when she was only a few days old. Noonan says these words about the experience:

“When our little girl Aislinn was 9 days old we took her to Crumlin hospital as she had been in pain and in distress for long enough, and we didn’t know what else to do. Turns out she had a bad intestinal infection, and there she stayed for 3 weeks, in the aptly named Nazareth ward.

One of the tests at the time showed that she has a hole in her heart – I remember staring at the screen, watching the tiny hole open and close with her heartbeat, winking at me…

We were really taken aback by the love and tender care she received in Crumlin, and would like to do something for them in return.

So, I’ve written a song called ‘Hole in Her Heart’, and recorded it with Aislinn’s mama Amy.

We’d like to put it out there to raise some money and possibly more importantly awareness of the fact that Crumlin still needs our help in taking care of our kids when they get sick”.

All the proceeds of the single will go directly to Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital Crumlin. It can be purchased from iTunes or as a special Christmas card here. Noonan and Van Den Broek performed a moving rendition of the song last Friday on RTE’s The Late Late Show, and you can watch it below.
