New album: TORPEDO Released: 18 March 2022 via Big Teeth Music Order info: here
LOUDER THAN WAR says: “Written and recorded remotely during the darkest days
of lockdown, it’s shot through with a paranoiac sense of urgency. Packed with musical
curve balls – a gnarly title track slaloms from thrash dirge to stadium anthem, the album’s
redemptive mode is summed up by The Healing, a Britpop-meets-grunge banger that serves
as a reminder that Feeder are still at their peak.” Score: 4/5.
Turn Up The Volume: Big, melodious tunes shot through a giant cannon towards
your Herculean-rock addicted ears. Loud and clear as we know the restless Welsh
rockin’ heroes. A holy bloody magnum record!

. Grant Nicholas (frontman: “We are really looking forward to going out on the road again and playing the new album material. This will be the heaviest Feeder set we’ve played in a while so can’t wait. We may revisit some heavier old school Feeder classics also and touch on some Renegades and All Bright electric stuff.”
Grant Nicholas (frontman): “The song was written and recorded during
lockdown on acoustic guitar. It’s one of the more direct and melodic songs
on the album. Lyrically it touches on the frustration at that time. Not being
able to perform live and all the negativity around on television and social
media about the situation we were all living and dealing with day to day.”
Don’t be mistaken Wall oF Silence isn’t a silent song, but
a firm melody surrounded by a wall-of-guitars commotion.
Grant Nicholas (frontman) about the song written along with the album
during lockdown: “All the emotion and frustration just caused a creative wave.
Dynamically and musically Torpedo felt like the obvious choice for us to drop
first. The chorus has a thread of positivity that brings light to the darker verses.”
