The Feeling are set to hit Manchester during a UK headline tour taking place through march. The six-date run sees the band perform at Manchester’s The Ruby Lounge on 14 March.
The tour comes in support of their new single Spiralling and their self-titled fifth album The Feeling, both released on 4 March. In making their fifth album, The Feeling boldly went where not many bands in the last 30 years have gone before: they decided to record the entire thing in just a few days, as a fully live band.
Following on from Wicked Heart, the first introduction to the new album, first single Spiralling perfectly showcases both Dan Gillespie Sells’ strong vocals and the live recording of the band’s new album in both its sound and the video. Premiered on Radio 2, it is an honest and emotive track that begins delicately before launching into a guitar-led expansive chorus.
Gillespie Sells says; “It meant writing a simple song which didn’t need a lot of additional production to make it work. Just 5 players in a studio and that’s it. We enjoyed the challenge of working this way.”
The Feeling is a raw and passionate album and it’s also why its title is self-titled, because this, more than any of their previous records, is what they really sound like.
“After the success of the album preview tour we’ve decided to take the show on the road to some exclusive intimate venues around the country” he adds. “We can’t wait to share the new album with you, but don’t worry, we’ll still be playing all the hits and old favourites too!”
