The iconic Feeder return with new single ‘The Healing’, taken from their forthcoming album ‘Torpedo’

After a meditative period of writing and solace, multi-platinum-selling rock band Feeder have released the opening track from their forthcoming new album, ‘Torpedo’, set for release on March 18th via Big Teeth Music. The single follows recent tracks Wall of Silence, title-track Torpedo and ‘Magpie’.

The world has changed since the band’s last album, yet Feeder’s new material comes on the back of a resurgent run of three consecutive UK Top 10 albums with 2016’s ‘All Bright Electric’, the 2017 ‘Best Of’, and 2019’s ‘Tallulah.

The track is paired with an equally probing music video, which sees the band playing on a sunlit high-rise roof, the urban skyline behind them. As aerial shots reveal a seemingly deserted city below, it prompts fans to consider the state of the modern world and where we find ourselves now. Black and white cinematography and lush, expansive cinematic string arrangements give way to signature crunching guitars. 

It’s a fresh and modern track, making bold first steps into the emerging post-pandemic world. Singer and guitarist Grant Nicholas explains: “When writing The Healing I definitely had a rock musical /film track in my head. I wanted to take the listener on a real journey with this song. It touches on the current world and climate we live in and also the issues and situations we are facing from day to day. I guess It’s a call to arms or a wake-up call about coming together to make change and to think about the future and the next step.”

Feeder will also be touring the album across the lengths of the UK, from Glasgow’s Barrowlands to London’s O2 Academy Brixton in April and May 2022.
