THE FEELERS GO NO.1
Posted: Fri Nov 24, 2006 6:09 pm
The Feelers brand new album ‘One World’ lands the double jackpot.

The Feeler’s fourth studio album ‘One World’ has debuted at #1. It is their first chart topper since second album Communicate opened at the top spot in 2001.

And to complete the double, ‘One World’ has been certified platinum barely a week after it hit the shelves.

the feelers head into summer with a #1 album under their belt, a multi-format radio hit tucked in there as well AND a New Zealand-wide summer tour in the offing.

This wave of success has prompted an outpouring of praise from NZ On Air head honcho Brendan Smyth, who credited the band for helping take New Zealand music on radio to giddy new heights over the last 10 years…

“We spotted the feelers at a very early stage and back then we barely had 2% Kiwi music on the radio. Now, 10 years later and with 20 airplay hits under their belts – 8 of them #1 Rock Airplay songs – we are nearing 20%. Coincidence? I don’t think so”.

The Feelers Release Brand New Single 'One World'
Posted: Thu Oct 12, 2006 3:11 pm
"One World", the title track off The Feelers 4th Studio album has hit the airwaves at full force, proving that The Feelers are as strong as ever...

After only 4 weeks at radio it is already one of the most played songs in the country...

The Feelers have had great success to date, selling over 150,000 albums nationwide, and being the most played NZ Artist since Radioscope has been taking note (6 Years)...

With the instant success of the first single "One World" and a great response from the video, The Feelers are sure to have the success they have had with their previous albums...

The Brand New Album "One World" will be released on November 13th...

I've done Weapons Of The War and The Fear so I'll copy them to you.

I'm also making a Word document that has all the lyrics if you want that at some stage. I'm halfway done with that.

Actually I'm looking at making a site for music lyrics so if anyone is interested then please let me know by way of e-mail.

My address is: lowededwookie@gmail.com

If I get enough interest I'll set the site up very quickly and we can all start adding lyrics.

It won't just be New Zealand stuff though.

Playground Battle Tour
Posted: Sat May 1, 2004 11:33 am
With a new single out and yet another outrageously successful album to their name, The Feelers - unquestionably New Zealand’s hardest working, not to mention notorious, live band - are on the road again.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last 6 years you don’t need telling that The Feelers are one of New Zealand’s most successful bands since releasing their debut album, 'Supersystem', in August 1998.

'Supersystem' went on to multi-platinum sales and spawned four huge hits, 'Pressure Man', 'Supersystem', 'Space Cadet', and 'Venus'. The band went on to win the APRA Silver Scroll for most played song two years in a row for 'Venus' and 'Supersystem', and highlighted singer & guitarist James Reid as one of New Zealand’s best songwriters.

'Communicate', The Feelers second album, and another multi-paltinum hit and produced the five top 10 singles, 'Astronaut', 'Communicate', 'As Good As It Gets', 'Fishing For Lisa', and 'Anniversary'.

'Playground Battle' the trio’s third album released in November 2003 shows no sign of abating the trend having already reached platinum status. The monster rock hit of summer, 'Larger Than Life', and current single 'Weapons Of War' are both a hell of a lot heavier than much of The Feelers previous work and superbly suited for a band that thrives on classic kiwi hard rocking

As is the norm for The Feelers, there is no doing things by half. The Playground Battle Tour takes in 18 cities from Auckland to Invercargill.

Adding to the firepower this time round is support band Opshop who release their debut album 'You Are Here' during May on the back of two rock radio hits 'Nothing Can Wait' and 'Secrets'. For Opshop guitarist Tim Skedden there will a bit of déjà vu – he was second guitarist in The Feelers touring unit throughout the 'Supersystem' and 'Communicate' years!

Last word is left to The Feeler’s powerhouse drummer Hamish Gee: "Playground Battle is an eclectic album, and it has got quite a live feel because when we play live we like to get our balls out a bit." Exactly.

Tickets on sale now from Ticketek, selected Sounds stores, the venues or usual outlets.

James Reid, Anika Moa Tour Cancelled
Posted: Sat Aug 31, 2002 6:11 pm
UNFORESEEN circumstances - that was the official explanation given by their publicists for why the national tour by Anika Moa and solo Feeler James Reid has been cancelled.

Specifically, Reid's band had extended their promotional jaunt in Britain and the US, meaning he just couldn't make the 23 dates due to start this Tuesday in Putaruru which had been booked since the beginning of August.

Well, no, not quite. The decision to pull the tour was because its ticket sales were poor, promoter Brent Eccles confirmed to TimeOut, adding that the scale of the tour proved too ambitious.

However, there are plans for Moa - who has been warming a lot of television studio couches lately to promote the shows but cancelled her appearance on The Panel tonight - to tour nearer summer.

Thanks to NZHERALD for this story.
