Screamfeeder ready to rock
FRIDAY the 13th might be unlucky for some but if you're a 90s music fan, you're in for one of your luckiest days of the year.
Noisy three-piece Screamfeeder will perform at Studio 188 next Friday on the first stop of their national tour.
Vocalist and guitarist Kellie Lloyd said the band was excited to be back together performing new music.
"We haven't put anything out for about 10 years," she said.
"We've never really stopped playing. Tim has another band and I've got my solo career.
"We are a band that's always been known an exciting live band and I think we're playing better than we ever have before. I think we've hit a new gear so we're feeling good."
Lloyd said the band's new music was a mixture of old and new.
"We changed our approach for each record. This time around the idea was to go back to our original style but there was no solid plan," she said.
"I think anything creative is usually influenced by your surroundings and the lyrics of out first new song, Alone In The Crowd, is about social anxiety which I discovered I was experiencing.
"I'd describe out sound as melodic, guitar-driven rock 'n' roll."
The seasoned performer said the band was in the process of re-releasing their previous eight albums.
"We're re-releasing out back catalogue on vinyl so all of our previous records are coming back out which is really exciting," she said.
"It's great having people tell us how they discovered the songs and what they meant to them.
"We're also writing new stuff and plan to have another album out next year."
Screamfeeder will perform live at Studio 188, located at 188 Brisbane St on Friday, November 13 from 7-9pm.
Local artists 1:1:1 and The Roof, the Walls & Everything will support the band.
Tickets cost $10 online or $14 at the door.
