Following a hugely successful 2016, which saw the British rock heroes achieve their 7th top 10 album, play a rapturous sold out UK tour and a host of festivals, FEEDER (Grant Nicholas & Taka Hirose) today announce a full UK tour in support of their forthcoming album FEEDER – THE BEST OF’. The announcement comes hot on the heals of their majestic ‘Homecoming’ show at Chepstow Racecourse on August bank holiday weekend, where the band played a greatest hits set to a packed out, sun drenched crowd in Grant’s home town – the first time the band had ever played there.
The 2018 UK Tour, the bands biggest for 10 years, proving their popularity is showing no signs of slowing down, kicks off on March 7th in Bristol and ends in London at Brixton Academy on March 17th. The tour will see the band playing tracks from the new Best Of, spanning an impressive 21 years of releases, and FEEDER first played Brixton Academy in October 1999 with this being bands first time back there since their sold-out headline show 5 years ago.
Following lead singer/guitarist and songwriter Grant Nicholas’s critically acclaimed solo releases, and FEEDER’s 2016 hit album ‘All Bright Electric’ the FEEDER frontman says he feels re-invigorated, and in the best creative space of his life. Adding “I remember sitting in a classroom at school aged 11 drawing pictures of flying V guitars and dreaming of being in a band, a band that could fill arenas and stadiums. The dream came true and here I am 25 years later with Feeder and still riding the rock and roll train. It’s hard to believe that Swim, the first mini album, was released 21 years ago. It feels like yesterday.”
