Atlanta’s Theatricore band, The Funeral Portrait, announced the arrival of their brand new album, A Moment of Silence, due out December 16th, 2016. The band consists of vocalist Lee Jennings, guitarist/vocalist Juergie Sandstorm, guitarist AJ Pekarek, bassist Chris King, and drummer Stephen Danzey. A Moment of Silence balances a combination of rock and roll, heavy metal, and theatricore, producing crafted tunes of love, loss, anger, and grief.
The band's lead vocalist describes the process behind the album: "We went into recording A Moment Of Silence trying to display a more dangerous and honest side of The Funeral Portrait. Everything on this record is real and played from the heart." Lead guitarist Juergie echoes: "A Moment of Silence is a story that explores one man's journey through the afterlife. In this universe there is eternity after death, but there is no god and there is no heaven. This man has been told his entire life that when he died, God would greet him at the gates of heaven. Now he must drift and observe, waiting for the truth to reveal itself."
