On Saturday (4th October), this year’s UK leg of the Dr. Martens #STANDFORSOMETHING Tour in association with DIY will kick off in Edinburgh with Funeral For A Friend laying waste to the Cabaret Voltaire alongside main support, God Damn.

What do you stand for, Funeral For A Friend?
“The idea that music can break down walls that segregate us in everyday life and can make you feel a part of something larger than yourself, that’s something to stand for. A real sense of community and belonging.”
