Not too long ago I told you about the split 7″ that would be released featuring Funeral For A Friend and Boysetsfire covering each others songs. I am so excitebike for this split it’s unbelievable. I also stated that I wasn’t a huge fan of Boysetsfire, but the bands just released their cover of FFAF‘s “10:45 Amsterdam Conversations” and it’s great. They totally captured the song in all it’s glory and still made it theirs. Check it out below. Continue reading
