Here are our highlights from today's album release schedule.
UK rockers Feeder will be touring the UK in March 2018, in support of their forthcoming greatest hits collection, The Best Of Feeder.
Last year saw the band release their seventh Top 10 album All Bright Electric, as well as selling out a UK tour and appearing at various festivals. With 21 years now behind them, their greatest hits collection celebrates some of their classic tracks.
“I remember sitting in a classroom at school aged 11 drawing pictures of flying V guitars and dreaming of being in a band, a band that could fill arenas and stadiums,” recalls frontman Grant Nicholas. “The dream came true and here I am 25 years later with Feeder and still riding the rock and roll train. It’s hard to believe that Swim, the first mini album, was released 21 years ago. It feels like yesterday.”
Due on the 29 September 2017, the record features iconic tracks such as Just The Way I’m Feeling, Buck Rogers, Feeling a Moment and Lost & Found. The band are drawing from a commercially successful history, that has seen them drop twenty Top 40 singles since their 1997 debut album, Polythene.
“After the success of ‘All Bright Electric’ it felt like the perfect time to release a Best Of, to remind people of our story so far, and the music we have created over the years,” Grant adds.
Announcing the record in early August, Feeder have recently unveiled Figure You Out, taken from the collections new material; one of nine new songs to appear on the studio album. They join 22 other tracks from across the band’s career, ranging their full back-catalogue of nine albums.
