Funeral Advantage Premiere "Please Help Me" at PopDust

Posted on January 31st, 2017

Listen to the title track from Funeral Advantage's 'Please Help Me' EP streaming now at PopDust!

"The title track plays with classic dream pop convention to create a floaty track that's as piercing as it is soothing. Kershaw's vocals, marked by a hushed tone, works as a resigned whisper in a song that's bursting with energy."

Please Help Me is out February 24th. Pre-order it here!

Funeral Advantage to Release 'Please Help Me' EP; "CEOT7K" Streaming at Consequence of Sound

Posted on January 11th, 2017

Today we're excited to finally announce Funeral Advantage's new EP, 'Please Help Me'. The new EP follows 2015's 'Body Is Dead' LP and will be released on February 24 on limited vinyl and cassette tapes. The first single "CEOT7K" is streaming at Consequence of Sound.

Funeral Advantage have been mostly hermetic since the release of 'Body Is Dead', the band’s 2015 debut album. With the exception of some sporadic touring through the US and Canada, Tyler Kershaw (Funeral Advantage’s sole member) has kept to himself, writing and recording what would be the next chapter of Funeral Advantage – a new EP entitled ‘Please Help Me’.

If 'Body Is Dead' came from a place of hope, 'Please Help Me' comes from a place of desolation and confusion. Written during the disintegration of a long term relationship, the record works through the existential feelings of hopelessness and meaninglessness that followed.

Posted on December 7th, 2016

We're so honored to announce that we are reissuing Koji's Spring Song, Vol. 1 on vinyl for the first time ever! Emotionally charged, delicate, full, folky and undoubtedly punk, Spring Song, Vol. 1 taps into an urgency that's both uplifting and uniquely poignant.

Spring Song, Vol. 1 is a collection of 10 live songs recorded in living rooms, basements, and punk houses across the East Coast, and was actually Koji's first release with Run For Cover Records, though it was only available on CD at the time.

The record is strictly limited to a one-time pressing of 300 copies spread over two variants – half translucent green / black, limited to 100 copies, and a solid translucent green, limited to 200 copies. Orders will ship late-January 2017, with a digital download of the record delivered to your inbox immediately.
