Rock group Feeder's new album has been heavily influenced by the death of their drummer Jon Lee.

Lee committed suicide in January 2002, and his former bandmates claim their loss "will never go away".

Frontman GRANT NICHOLAS says, "Losing Jon was a terrible thing to happen and that pain will never go away and all the memories and feelings have given me a lot to write about.

"Maybe if anyone has lost someone, they will be able to relate with some of these new songs. The new album is all about making us appreciate what we've got really."
