"Just the Way I'm Feeling" is the second single to be released from Feeder's fourth album Comfort In Sound. The single was due to be released on 6 January 2003, almost a year to the day the band's drummer Jon Lee committed suicide in his Miami home. Technical glitches on many on the CD's were found when they came back from the pressing plant, which caused a delay in release. To make up for this the band decided to hold an in-store at HMV, which created the biggest in-store signing event in their history, when 1,500 copies were sold of the single (all the stores stock at the time) and were all signed by the band on the same day, with an acoustic set also performed. This saw the store being closed to the general public and was repeated two years later when the band appeared at the same store on Oxford Street for a signing-only event for their 5th studio album Pushing the Senses, when the store was closed yet again.
Renegades is the seventh studio album by the British rock band Feeder. It will be released on July 5, 2010. It will be the first in a series of two albums released in 2010 by the band, with this album being the follow-up to 2008's Silent Cry which was their last album on The Echo Label and also their last with drummer Mark Richardson before he returned to Skunk Anansie. The album will represent a similar musical style as seen on 2008's Silent Cry, and will feature more songs using electric guitars while completely moving away from acoustic as seen on their previous two albums. The album was promoted to the fanbase in early 2010 by announcing a series of gigs under the side-project name Renegades, with the shows being mainly to showcase the new songs that would be on the album and use the name change to state that the gigs will not be Feeder shows, but more like "A band within Feeder" as explained by frontman Grant Nicholas and to also bring attention to attendees of the shows, not to expect any of the band's hits.
Pushing the Senses is the fifth album by the British rock band Feeder. It was released on Echo, PIAS and Pony Canyon on January 31, 2005 in the United Kingdom, Europe and Japan. It was a top five album in Feeder's native United Kingdom, and its lead single "Tumble and Fall" was a top five single. In the Republic of Ireland the album peaked in the top twenty. This made the album Feeder's most successful in terms of peak chart positions. The album represented a similar musical style as seen on 2002's Comfort in Sound, and featured more songs written on a piano and also had as described by frontman Grant Nicholas as more of an "organic" sound than that of the latter. Inspirations were that of John Lennon within some of the songwriting. Pushing the Senses received a Welsh Music Award in 2005 for "Best Album". The album was certified gold in the UK, becoming a modest commercial success.
The album was given a low-key promotional build up due to the death of their late drummer Jon Lee. Before the albums release the band played a small number of festivals at Reading/Leeds, and Gig on the Green. The Reading and Leeds shows seen one of the most talked-about events of that year's festival, in which the tent was overcrowded beyond its allowed capacity, and seen many people having to watch from outside as a result. Kerrang! magazine gave a rating of 5/5 (KKKKK), for the band's performance. Before these three were played, a warm-up show at the Portsmouth Wedgewood rooms took place two days before Reading. All of the festival shows were played on the second stage, to maintain the low-key status of the shows and albums build-up. Before being invited to the Reading/Leeds festival, the bands original plan was to release the album and not play any shows during the year, with the airplay of the albums first single "Come Back Around", to promote the album on pre-release. The single got its first airplay on BBC Radio 1's "The Evening Session" show, and was A-listed by the station. The song was originally recorded as an instrumental demo in 2001, with the lyrics shortly written afterwards. After the death of Jon Lee, Grant Nicholas re-wrote the lyrics to relate to their friend and colleague's death, when the final version was recorded with Mark Richardson on drums. A completely instrumental version of the album was issued to TV & Radio media.
