Die Shellsuit, Die!

An Alternative Music Magazine


’...one of the best unsigned British modern rock bands around...’ - Fireworks Magazine Hailing from the South of England, Feud spit out highly alluring tuneage that meshes the hard-hitting delivery of Nirvana (ala Bleach era) with the song-writing sensibilities of Weezer.

Quite rightly, Feud have gained wide recognition for their energetic and noose-tight live performances. The engaging riff monsters are now set to push the envelope further in the shape of their stunning debut album ‘Waterdog’, out 19th September 2011.

The band marks its earliest origins in the country of South Africa, where brothers Greg & Guy Combrinck began work on songs that would eventually make their way across continents to land in the UK and become the framework for Feud. Setting about to put a band together, the Combrinck brothers hunted for members with a kindred passion and intent. After a relentless search, Ian Harper (Guitars/Vocals) and Tom Syrett (Bass) were brought into the fold, and quickly proved their worth, impressing their own footprint into the band’s already accomplished sound.

During the past four years, Feud have cut their teeth playing a host of shows throughout the UK, sharing stages with everyone from Bad Manners, Cancer Bats, Young Guns, Jettblack and Days In December. Along the way, the band picked up critical praise and rave reviews for their debut release, the four-track EP “Out From The Inside.” The record was sculpted at Outhouse Studios (Funeral for a Friend, Enter Shikari) and racked up solid worldwide sales. Praise for the EP release, along with Feud’s captivating live performances, earned the band a place on the 2007 Reading Festival bill, as well as an appearance on the BBC Three Channel.

Taking their influence from a variety of artists ranging from U2 to Nirvana, but most notably Stone Sour and Foo Fighters, Feud distil and break their music down into something that’s both honest and all-encompassing on impact. The dynamic four-piece have now pooled their sound to tape and set loose their greatly anticipated debut full length album ‘Waterdog’ this September. The record instantly marks its arrival, packing a hefty blow to the senses. Rammed with blistering guitar riffs, crushing rhythms and contagious rock anthems, ‘Waterdog’ is a truly honest and potent modern rock record. Everything is now in place for the rising riff-slingers to fight for their place as one of the truly exciting bands of 2011!
