Feeder are sharing more new music from their forthcoming double album Black / Red which is set for release on 5th April 2024 on Big Teeth Music via Townsend Music / Absolute Label Services.

Black / Red completes a trilogy of albums joined to 2022’s UK Top 5 album Torpedo. New double A-side single 'The Knock' / 'Soldiers Of Love' is out now.

Talking about the new songs, vocalist, guitarist and writer Grant Nicholas says: "The Knock ‘is one of the more direct, up-tempo songs on the Black / Red album. It’s really a song about a highway or road of life and the journey in which it can take us on and the challenges we face along the way.

When writing ‘Soldiers Of Love' I remember having a very clear visual image for the song, almost like a film soundtrack. It’s the first time we’ve recorded bagpipes on a Feeder track as we felt they would add to the slight Celtic feel of the song. It was originally going to stay more of an acoustic style track but I felt the song could be more cinematic and grander sonically

"Songs across Black / Red carry with them the same sense of wide-open space, freedom and possibility, aligned with an optimistic energy that first lit the fuse for Torpedo. Cohesive and connected rather than a concept, Black / Red is a continuation of Torpedo’s conversation but at the same time a full stop on a prolific songwriting period that encapsulates a very specific moment in time for the band. Feeder’s first ever double album became the perfect way for them to not only realise what these songs mean together in the present day, but also to show the breadth of a sound they’ve honed across the decades, taking in muscular riffs, sky-scraping melodies and heartfelt sentiment.

Expanding about the new album, Nicholas continues: “I really wanted the album to be split in two parts for the listener, CD1 and CD2, black and red rather than be one long player, almost like a musical production with an interval. Making it was a very creative time for me as a writer and a real labour of love. Making the Black / Red album for me personally was a musical pilgrimage and I feel the end result is undeniable Feeder.”

Black / Red is released on 5th April 2024 and will be available on digital, CD and vinyl. Pre-order here.
