How does a band go on if one of their members commits suicide? Feeder, whose album Polythene was voted Kerrang!’s best album of the year in 1997, went through this tough time. After the death of their drummer in 2002, the remainder of the band around Grant Nicholas stayed out of the public eye for over a year, working their way through the mess that was their feelings. What sprang from this was Comfort in Sound, which turned out to be more mellowly melodic, including a string orchestra and piano tunes. After the three following albums Pushing the Senses, The Singles and Silent Cry and the departure of then-drummer Mark Richardson, Feeder started touring as their side project Renegades which is also the title of their seventh studio album. Feeder is back. A new album for 2011 under the title of Chronic Dysfunction is already in the making and the band is touring Europe with their seventh album. Their style cannot really be classified but would range somewhere between post-grunge, alternative and indie rock with some very agreeable pop titles. Scream your lungs out to the otherwise fast-paced, emotional and energetic songs. It would be a venal sin to miss one of the not-so-underground-anymore-indie-legends of the early 2000s. So, pack your not-so-teenage angst and slouch on into the Knust.
