The First Official Single Off The New Album

‘Wall Of Silence’ completes a trio of incredible tracks

‘Wall Of Silence’ has become the third single to be taken from Feeder’s upcoming album ‘Torpedo’, with ‘Magpie‘ and title track ‘Torpedo‘ being released over the summer to huge acclaim from their fan base and music critics. Whilst the latest offering isn’t quite as loud and raucous, it still packs a monumental punch, and shows exactly what Feeder are capable of. They can knock you off your feet with a track that is maxed out with dirty guitars and pounding drums, or they can turn down the gain, give the drums less of a thrashing and still manage to blow your mind.

‘Wall Of Silence’ is by no means a relaxing or acoustic track, and is still laden with pounding drums and chunky riffs for the chorus, but in the verses everything’s a bit more dialled back and strategic, allowing for a crescendo to build as the chorus comes out of nowhere to hit you square in the face and take your breath. The vocals follow the same pattern to, there’s a certain relaxed tone to them for the verses, but as the chorus hits, those signature raspy vocals come back in full swing and are the icing on the cake for this, the third single from their forthcoming album ‘Torpedo’ which releases in March 2022.

Singer and guitarist Grant Nicholas says: “Wall Of Silence was written and recorded during lockdown on acoustic guitar. I had an almost 80’s influence for the verses both melody wise and rhythmically. We mixed real drums in the verse with some overlaid percussion, synths and drum machine percussion to add a subtle electronic feel. It’s one of the more direct and melodic songs on the Torpedo album. Lyrically it touches on the frustration at that time, not being able to perform live and all the negativity around on television and social media about the situation we were all living and dealing with day to day. I think we all hoped for positive news each day and it was hard to deal with the unknown, fear and negativity. If you can’t say something positive or constructive then basically don’t say it. That’s certainly the way I felt at the time dreading the next announcement and headline.”

Torpedo is released on March 18th 2022 and will be available on digital, CD and vinyl. Pre-order here.
