The Feeling are back with a new album, a new label and a whole new lease of life.
Boy Cried Wolf is out on October 7 – and the band will be heading to the North East soon after to showcase their new music.
The band’s frontman, Dan Gillespie-Sells, can pinpoint the precise moment that Boy Cried Wolf came into being.
He had returned to London alone after spending Christmas 2011 in the English countryside, his five-year relationship in tatters, his head in turmoil.
Sitting alone in the East London pub he bought and converted into a home/studio, Dan plonked himself down at the piano and wrote a song.
The result, You’ll See, promises to be one of the highlights of an album which, like The Feeling’s multi-platinum 2006 debut, Twelve Stops And Home, the band recorded and produced themselves.
Dan says it’s a record fuelled by liberation from their former record label.
“We were just in our little bubble again,” says Dan.
“There was this sense that there wasn’t any pressure on us now to be anything other than what we are.” The Feeling – made up of vocalist Dan Gillespie-Sells, bassist Richard Jones, guitarist Kevin Jeremiah, keyboardist Ciaran Jeremiah and drummer Paul Stewart – are embarking on a UK tour next month which sees them play Sage Gateshead on October 21.
Tickets are £18.50. For details visit www.sagegateshead.com.
