DID YOU KNOW?

Feeder are a Welsh rock band, who formed in Newport, South Wales, during 1992. The band were originally comprised of Grant Nicholas (lead vocals, guitar, piano), Taka Hirose (bass), and Jon Lee (drums). Following Jon's suicide in 2002, former Skunk Anansie and Little Angels drummer Mark Richardson joined in August 2002. Feeder have also been accompanied by touring members Matt Sime (keyboards; 2000–2002), Dean Tidey (guitar, backing vocals; 1998–present) and Dean Deavall (keyboards, backing vocals; 2008-present).

Feeder released their first two albums, Polythene and Yesterday Went Too Soon, in 1997 and 1999 respectively, before the release of their third album, Echo Park propelled them into mainstream popularity in 2001. After their breakthrough year, their drummer Jon Lee committed suicide in his Miami home in January 2002. The band continued, releasing Comfort in Sound at the close of 2002, an album musically and lyrically focused around the band's emotions at the time, which was well-received by critics. This was followed by 2005's Pushing the Senses, while their newest album, Silent Cry, is due to be released in June 2008.

Although Feeder have not reached #1 on any sales-based chart with any of their own releases, they have released five studio albums and two compilations, including a singles album. Those releases have spawned three UK platinum sales awards, two gold awards, and one silver award, with a gold award in Ireland for their singles album. Alongside this, they also have twenty-three top seventy-five singles, and seven top seventy-five albums.[1] Additionally, Feeder hold the distinction as the first act to play in front of 1,500 people or more at any HMV store worldwide, and have also collected Kerrang! awards for "Best British Live Act" (2001) and "Best British Band" (2003).
