Feelies

"Legendary NJ avant-pop the Feelies have announced 2011 tour dates which will follow the release of a new studio album. After a 19 year break, the Feelies are back with Here Before, an album of all new original material on Bar/None Records. The new album touches on different styles from the Feelies' long history while adding new grooves and musical ideas to the mix. Electric and acoustic guitars melt together in archetypal Feelies fashion on songs like "Nobody Knows" and "Should be Gone. " Elsewhere there are slabs of driving garage rock like "When You Know" and "Time Is Right" and the down-tempo "Bluer Skies," and harmonically rich "Later On."

Here Before was recorded at Water Music in Hoboken, New Jersey produced by Feelies founders Glenn Mercer and Bill Million. Besides Glenn on rhythm/lead guitar and lead vocals, and Bill on guitar and vocals, the album features Feelies mainstays Brenda Sauter (bass, vocals), Stanley Demeski (drums), and Dave Weckerman (percussion)." - PR

The newly announced shows are happening in May and June, and there aren't many of them, but one is at The Bell House in Brooklyn on May 13th. Tickets are on sale. All dates below...

The Who is Roger Daltry and Pete Townsend. What does it have to do with the Feelies?

their new ablum will pale in comparison to their old stuff. why embarrass yourselves?

what's the deal with the carlos soundtrack? the film makers would have exclusively used feelies music, but the band did not want to be associated with a terrorist. the soundtrack was great even with one feelies track.

I hope the new album will be at the same level with the old ones. I'd like to see them.

Great news, new album even better. Sweet.

Saw Pavement and they didn't have a new album last year...

I hope they make it to the midwest, chicago please.
