Their first post-Jon Lee material is strongly influenced by him...

FEEDER‘s new album is due for release in October.

The album, which is the band’s first since the suicide of drummer Jon Lee, has been given a provisional release date of October 21. It will be preceded by a single, ‘Come Back Around’, on September 29.

As previously revealed on NME.COM, the follow-up to ‘Echo Park’ is being recorded with ex-Skunk Anansie drummer Mark Richardson, although the group are yet to confirm him as the replacement for Lee.

Track titles include ‘Child In You’, ‘Godzilla’, ‘The Way I’m Feeling’, ‘Forget About Tomorrow’ and ‘Comfort In Sound’.

Speaking to Kerrang!, singer Grant Nicholas said that the album has been influenced by Lee’s suicide.

“There’s a lot of lyrics that I think were definitely fuelled by emotions that I felt, or that we all felt. I didn’t really analyse it, I didn’t even know I was doing it sometimes”, he commented.

The band return to the live arena at the Carling Weekend festivals at the end of August, and are also planning a small club show as a warm-up at the Portsmouth Wedgewood Rooms (August 20).
