29/10/10: FEEDER RETURN IN JANUARY - RENEGADES LIVE 2011

FEEDERS are back! 'Renegades'the title of their latest and seventh studio album released last May, is a statement of intent for the Cardiff band who, for the umpteenth time, had to undergo a change of drummer, after Mark Richardson was called to order by his Skunk Anansie. No fear: the two founders Grant Nicholas (vocals and guitar) and Teka Hirose (bass) they promptly recruited the excellent Karl Brazil that we will see on stage at the Magnolia in their only Italian date on 31 January. With them we will also hear from the trusty Dean Tidey, the 'fourth' Feeder, who has always been the band's session man.

Beloved and revered in the UK, where they have gone twice platinum and three times gold, FEEDER have developed a powerful and melodic sound over the past decade, achieving great success with their second album 'Yesterday went too soon', followed by the even more acclaimed 'Echo Park' and 'Comfort in Sound', the latter an absolute masterpiece of modern British rock.

In 2006, 'Feeder - the Singles' was released, a collection that testifies to the trio's ability to write rock hits as few can.

Over the years, the three rockers have been on the main stage of major UK festivals, such as Glastonbury, Reading, Download, Isle of Wight and others, imposing themselves for the great charge of their performances.

Although born and bred in Cardiff, it is impossible not to notice the somatic features of bassist Taka Hirose, who has rightfully entered Asian music history for being the oriental musician to have sold the most records in England.

In Italy, FEEDER have a big fan: Eldorado Bennato, with whom they collaborated at the Neapolis Festival in 2003. After four years of absence, here at last is a new date in Milan, at the Circolo Magnolia on 31 January 2011, the only concert in our country within the tour of the latest album, 'Renegades', which has brought Grant Nicholas and his bandmates closer to the aggressive sound of the early days.
