Feed The Rhino Are Back After 12-Month Hiatus

One of the UK’s best hardcore band, Feed The Rhino are back following a 12-month absence.  Kent bruisers, FEED THE RHINO have announced 4 intimate comeback shows and a new festival appearance.

SEPTEMBER
20 – Bristol – Exchange
21 – London – Boston Music Rooms
22 – Southampton – Joiners
24 – Manchester – Sound Control
25 – Gloucester – Underground Festival

In November 2015, the band announced they were taking a break and cancelled a support slot tour with Sikth, they issued the following statement :

“For the last six years FTR has encompassed the five of our lives, and we have seen and done things that we never thought possible. But behind the scene, normal life carries on, and we all try and juggle the band with our other commitments in life (families, wives, mortgages, businesses etc). The older we have got, and the more successful the band has grown to be, the harder the juggling act has become.
It has come to light in the last few weeks that for some in the band, committing to any more is an impossible task. We need to take a breath from being FTR, to see through an increasingly large mountain of personal commitments so that we can continue with the band next year.” 

With their last performance being none other than Reading and Leeds Festival’s main stage, it’s safe to say that the boys have some unfinished business to attend to with frontman, Lee Tobin warning fans of the forthcoming chaos.

“Guys, what can we say? It’s been a while! Playing live has always been a huge part of Feed The Rhino and it’s been way too long. In September, we will be hitting the road to reunite with you. Make sure you don’t miss out. Trust us when we say these shows will not disappoint. Body Armour may be required!”

Before the band’s break, they had just unleashed their new track, “Featherweight” along with a ground-breaking 360˙ video. This was their first new offering since 2014’s juggernaut record “The Sorrow and The Sound”. The band are rumoured to be locked away finishing up where the song left off.


Ticket’s for the band’s newly announced shows will be on sale from Friday 8th July through: www.myticket.co.uk.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
