Welsh post-hardcore act Funeral for a Friend will be releasing their sixth studio album early next year. The band's upcoming 2013 full-length, 'Conduit,' will be the follow-up to their 2011 effort, 'Welcome Home Armageddon.'

Funeral for a Friend rose to prominence in 2003 with their debut album 'Casually Dressed & Deep in Conversation,' as well as the 2005 sophomore release, 'Hours.' Now that nearly 10 years has passed since their debut, the Welsh musicians are also set to unveil the music video for new song 'Best Friends and Hospital Beds' on Oct. 10.

The band shared their excitement about the upcoming release:

Five people on a stage, a conduit for the message and the music, delivering that to people who want to listen in, be a part of whatever it is that we're doing and being involved. It's purely about delivering the message. After 10 years of being a band, we see how much what we've done has effected people who care about our stuff. Whether it's lyrics or whatever, these songs transcend us and become something more to a lot more people. It sounds lofty I know but that’s how it feels to us when we meet the folks who dig our band and who treat these songs with so much love and respect. It blows our minds constantly.

'Conduit' will be Funeral for a Friend's first release on The End Records. The disc is set for a Jan. 28 release in Europe with a Feb. 5 release reported for the United States.
