Through the summer of 2021 Feeder have been teasing the first music from their upcoming new album Torpedo. The album’s opening previews – title-track “Torpedo” and “Magpie” - both led with heavy, grinding riffs that made way for sky-high choruses. Today, the album’s first official single “Wall Of Silence” is announced. “Wall Of Silence” sees the band continuing to grapple with finding their way out of the dark and into the light. It is a song that simultaneously captures the feeling of the world going into a form of stasis - as lockdowns took hold, streets emptied, and music stopped – along with the hope for better news as a way to move forward. Singer and guitarist Grant Nicholas explains: “Wall Of Silence was written and recorded during lockdown on acoustic guitar. I had an almost 80’s influence for the verses both melody wise and rhythmically. We mixed real drums in the verse with some overlaid percussion, synths and drum machine percussion to add a subtle electronic feel. It’s one of the more direct and melodic songs on the Torpedo 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. I think we all hoped for positive news each day and it was hard to deal with the unknown, fear and negativity. If you can’t say something positive or constructive then basically don’t say it. That’s certainly the way I felt at the time dreading the next announcement and headline.” Listen to “Wall Of Silence” on DSPs here and watch the visualizer below. Torpedo is released on March 18th 2022 and will be available on digital, CD and vinyl. Pre-order here.

More about new album Torpedo The celebrated, multi-platinum-selling, rock band Feeder have hit a resurgent run of three consecutive UK Top 10 albums with 2016’s All Bright Electric, the 2017 Best Of, and 2019’s Tallulah. Looking ahead to 2022, it is with some momentum that the band will release new album Torpedo into the world. Momentum has been something in short supply for many artists over the last 18 months. For Feeder, the ensuing numbness of early-stage lockdowns inevitably led to an uncharacteristically uninspired period for the band and songwriter Grant Nicholas. Feeder, however, have always been masters of marrying the light and the dark - illuminating the shadowy corners of their world to uncover something poignant and uplifting - meaning it was not long before conditions became a perfect storm for inspiration’s lightning to strike, and two albums’ worth of music materialised. Torpedo signals a band refreshed, inspired by the new and not resting on the strength of their considerable successes. Like so much of the band’s high points, Torpedo is a communal experience that considers the processes through which we deal with what’s in front of us. Musically it acts a connecting thread between all they’ve journeyed through to date, and all they can still become in the future. Feeder will also be touring the album through the UK in 2022. Full dates below. Tickets are available here.
