Feeder have dropped a new song, Magpie.

Driven by a pounding beat, the grunge guitar-drenched rocker leans hard into an industrial aesthetic and will appear on the band's upcoming album, 'Torpedo', due out on March 18 via Big Teeth Music.

It follows the previously unveiled title track. Lead singer and guitarist Grant Nicholas commented:

"I first wrote the riff to Magpie at home during lockdown on my Gibson J45 acoustic. I had an almost heavy dance groove idea in my head when writing it and also when approaching the production, and how to capture this feeling and sound.

"The lyrics were mainly written on my daily walks and runs to Finsbury Park during lockdown. It was a very observational process for me and mentions my childhood superstition for Magpie birds that I had spotted every day. The song's chorus touches on the frustration that I think we all feel, and especially felt at that time, about the future in general. It also addresses the impact social media and how it can affect peoples' belief, dreams and mental wellbeing.

"We are all kind of servants to the system in some way and our own feelings and emotions - it’s just how each person deals with them in their own way.

"It’s definitely one of my favourite tracks on the 'Torpedo' album and was fun to write and record some big riffs."

Feeder will support the record with a previously announced UK tour next spring. Tickets are on sale now.
