BIOGRAPHY

 

Do not box them in to one genre.. this is a great sound. How is this band unsigned? -Greg James, BBC Radio 1 Since their first jam together in a small, dirty rehearsal space somewhere in the suburbs of Manchester, the three talented musicians soon found a unique style, “…mixing driving riffs with electronic samples and pulsing beats that result in organic dance rock(Kerrang! magazine), leaning on their enormous variety of influences. Having originally grown up amongst the picturesque landscape of the Lake District, The Feud are were formed in Manchester, UK.

Their debut single In Between The Lines, released in June 2010 has had much critical acclaim and praise, attracting attention from all over Europe. The summer of 2010 saw The Feud set sail on their first self-funded, self-run tour, playing across the UK then to head into Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands and the Czech Republic soon after to open the main stage at the Czech Republic’s biggest festival, Rock for People, playing alongside acts such as The Prodigy, Editors, The Subways & Muse. The Feud returned to mainland Europe in December 2010 for a handful of special, sold out shows, including headlining the beautiful Lucerna Bar in Prague.

It’s rave o’clock… this band are really, really good… some amazing driving beats
– Fearne Cotton, BBC Radio 1

The Feud have since embarked on a nationwide support tour in the UK to sell-out crowds. As a result, the band are quickly gaining a reputation for having a raucous, energetic live show. Jamie Walker, guitarist and vocalist, explains, “when we play a show, we want the audience to leave feeling like they’ve been to a club and a rock gig rolled into one“. Stephen, bassist and backing vocalist, adds, “the goal with our music is to make you mosh your head and wiggle your ass at the same time, delivering a show filled with energy“.

The Feud can generate monster energy… it is an incredible sonic force that pumps the crowd to get crazy. And they do… 9/10

In May 2012, The Feud’s single It Ain’t Right was handpicked by BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens and chosen as his pick of the week, which lead to airplay on daytime shows on BBC Radio 1 through the month. Click here to see BBC Radio 1’s blog entry about The Feud
