Ivor Novello award-winning, Brit Award-nominated band The Feeling first burst onto the scene in 2006 with their debut Top 10 UK hit ‘Sewn’. The band’s debut album, Twelve Stops And Home, followed in June 2006. It was a huge success, selling 1.5 million copies worldwide (with platinum sales of over 900,000 in Britain).
Along with ‘Sewn’, the album also included the bona fide hit singles ‘Fill My Little World’, ‘Never Be Lonely’ and ‘Love It When You Call’. Accompanying airplay made them the most played act on British radio that year, receiving 97,436 spins (or 267 a day). In due course, the band won the prestigious Ivor Novello Award for Songwriters of the Year.
Having originally honed their skills as a covers band playing in French ski resorts, The Feeling also quickly established a reputation as a fantastic live act, something they’ve since demonstrated everywhere from Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage to the Queen’s back garden to Wembley Stadium.
In 2008 the band released their Number One second album ‘Join With Us’, which bagged them another big hit in ‘I Thought It Was Over’. Further albums followed in 2011 (Together We Were Made), 2013 (Boy Cried Wolf) and 2016 (The Feeling) all of which spawned more radio hits and further adoration from their ever-loyal fanbase.
Following that 2016 self-titled album - the most critically-acclaimed release of their career - the band went on hiatus, not knowing what was to follow.
However in 2018, the band decided to play a one-off show at The Apollo Theatre, London to celebrate twelve years since 12 Stops and Home. The show sold out in minutes, and proved to be such a joyous, triumphant occasion that the band and fans were left wanting more. The 12 Years and Home tour was soon put on sale, which again sold out, and marked the band’s triumphant return in late 2018.
Summer 2019 will see the band take their remarkable hits-filled set to festivals up and down the country. The best live band in the UK are back!
