Passionate new album

Contractual obligations fulfilled, new sticksmith on board and Feeder have the freedom of their own label.

Unjustly, 2008’s ‘Silent Cry’ sold fewer copies than Salman Rushdie novels in Bangladesh, suggesting time to take stock for album number seven. So back to basics for the Welsh trio, with a return to the post grunge days of yore.

More power chords than you could shake a leek at and an invigorated surge of energy that oozes both passion and belief. Whether it’s enough to turn the tide of diminishing returns is questionable but it stands as their best offering since ‘Echo Park’.
