Feeder Releases Two New Songs “The Knock” & “Soldiers of Love”
London-based rock band Feeder, consisting of Grant Nicholas (lead vocals/lead guita) and Taka Hirose (bass), released two new songs “The Knock” and “Soldiers of Love” on November 24, 2023.
The songs were taken from their upcoming double album “Black / Red”, following the release of “Playing With Fire” and “ELF” last month.
The band lead singer Grant Nicholas said of the songs, “'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.”
He continued, “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.”
- The new album completes a trilogy of albums joined to the 2022 album “Torpedo”. It is set to be released on April 5, 2024.
Grant Nicholas said of the album, “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.”
He added. “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.”
