Feeder Announce Summer Festivals 2012 & Academy Tour
Hot on the heels of the amazing reception to their recent sold out live dates and forthcoming album, Feeder announce a string of huge UK dates for November 2012. Culminating in a show at O2 Academy Brixton, the tour takes in five dates across the country. The band are also confirmed for Isle of Wight, T In The Park and Sonsiphere festivals.
Clearly rising towards a new career peak, 2012 is shaping up to be a big year for the band. Having already sold out a UK tour in January in support of their single 'Borders', Feeder are gearing up for the release of their eighth album 'Generation Freakshow', out April 23rd. The response to the new songs at recent live shows has signalled great things for the album, as has the 500,000 views on YouTube for the 'Borders' video.
'Generation Freakshow' takes the heavier elements of Feeder's previous album 'Renegades' and marries it to the anthemic rock of their much-loved hits. In their career, which spans over two decades, the band have racked up over 25 hit singles, sold in excess of five million records, and released a double platinum singles collection.
