Following a hugely successful Big Top Headline slot at this summer’s Isle of Wight festival, British rock heroes FEEDER (Grant Nicholas & Taka Hirose) announce their stunning new studio album ‘All Bright Electric’. The band’s 9th album will be released via Cooking Vinyl on 30th September 2016.
The first single from ‘All Bright Electric’ will be ‘Universe of Life’ which fans can receive instantly when pre-ordering the album from today. Pre order the album here
‘Universe of Life’ is a low-slung, blistering onslaught of huge riffs that paves the way for FEEDER’s confident new sound. It’s a true statement of intent representing an even bigger, more exciting FEEDER who have found a fresh lease of life in making this breathtaking new record. ‘Universe of Life’ is delivered today and can be embedded far and wide from the following link.
In support of their first release since 2012’s ‘Generation Freakshow’, FEEDER also return to the UK and Ireland with a 14 date tour after a four year hiatus.
Following lead singer/guitarist and chief songwriter Grant Nicholas’s recent, critically acclaimed solo releases ‘Yorktown Heights’ and ‘Black Clouds’, which saw Grant play a host of shows with a very different, ‘lo-fi’ line up, the FEEDER frontman says he feels re-invigorated, and in the best creative space of his life.
Nicholas added: "I wanted the album to really capture Feeder’s heart and soul. For us the journey the music takes the listener on is still so important, and that is what still drives me to make the best music we can. Recording ‘All Bright Electric’ felt as exciting as making our first album ‘Polythene’. I hope people enjoy this record as I think it's our most complete to date”
FEEDER first shot to fame when their debut EP ‘Swim’ was released to huge critical acclaim in 1996. Since then they’ve had 25 Top 40 hits with the likes of ‘Feeling A Moment, ‘Just The Way I’m Feeling’, ‘Just A Day’ and ‘Buck Rogers’ and amassed over 5 million record sales along with 3 Platinum and 2 Gold Albums.
FEEDER’s autumn tour will see the band revisit some of their biggest hits whilst also performing tracks from their forthcoming – and long-awaited – new studio album ‘All Bright Electric’.
FEEDER kick off their tour at O2 ABC Glasgow on September 28th and visit a number of the UK’s best-loved venues such as the O2 Ritz in Manchester, London’s Roundhouse and Nottingham Rock City before concluding at The Lemon Grove in Exeter on the 20th October.
