The Funeral Portrait’s “Generation Psycho” Captures A Creeping Fear Of The Future

Combining Rock with Emo Pop-Punk, The Funeral Portrait is also a theatrical-leaning band focusing on a place where “weird kids can let loose.” The band have today released the new single Generation Psycho,” a sarcastic take on our current cultural climate, accompanied by a horror-inspired video. “Generation Psycho” will be featured on the band’s debut album due later this year via Better Noise Music

The album was co-produced by Johnny Andrews (Three Days Grace, Motionless In White, Halestorm) and Josh Landry, aka Lø Spirit (Motionless In White) while mixing and mastering was completed by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Arch Enemy).

Vocalist Lee Jennings shares:

‘Generation Psycho’ is a statement piece from our band, a song about the out of control feeling so many people have about our culture, our society, and our government. The song captures the creeping fear of the future, of being outcasted and abandoned, and of falling through the cracks. We are hoping to connect with the disenfranchised and struggling with this song, the people who don’t know where to turn for help or guidance. We want to offer solace for people in this situation, so they know they are not alone in their fears, worries, and anxieties for themselves & their loved ones. So often it does feel like the whole world has gone crazy. We are no strangers to it and empathize with the experience.

The Funeral Portrait is made up of Lee Jennings (vocals), Cody Weissinger (guitar), Caleb Freihaut (guitar/auxiliary), Robert Weston (bass) and Homer Umbanhower (drums). They have built up a fanbase, called The Coffin Crew, and they dedicate their live performances to their crew as “devotion ceremonies”. The “devotion ceremonies” consist of full theatrical stage décor, costumed actors and more. With previous tours alongside acts including Shinedown, Underoath, Skillet, Bad Wolves, From Ashes To New, Starset and Pvris under their belt, and a main stage set at Inkcarceration Festival, the band will be touring across the U.S. this Fall.

The band will next be seen opening for Horror Rock band Ice Nine Kill for their “Silver Scream Concert” on September 9 in Lynn, MA which takes place amidst Ice Nine Kills’ horror convention, Silver Scream Con.

They will then make their way to Greenville, SC on September 13 to join the “Emo Dreams Tour” with Icon For Hire, Conquer Divide and Concrete Castles. The tour will make its way across the U.S. and a stop on September 22 in Toronto, ON before wrapping up on Halloween, October 31 in Memphis, TN.
