THE FEATURES Tickets
Acclaimed alt-rock quartet, The Features, are heading over from Tennessee in September to play gigs in Manchester and London.
Tickets will be available on Aloud.com from 9am on Friday July 6th.
2011 album 'Wilderness' is an amalgamation of influences and inspirations - spanning elements of Krautrock, indie, psychedelia, and classic AOR - to conjure up The Features' own inimitable, indescribable sound.
"I feel like we walk this fine line," says singer/guitarist Matt Pelham. "We're not weird enough for a certain crowd and we're a little bit too out there for the other crowd. We fall in the middle somewhere between mainstream and hipster, which puts us in this weird place, but we're all pretty happy to be here."
The album,followed 2009's acclaimed 'Some Kind Of Salvation', (released on Kings of Leon's label, Serpents and Snakes, a venture with music publisher, Bug Music), began coming together upon The Features' return home after a lengthy 2010 tour alongside Manchester Orchestra.
Since releasing The Beginning EP in 2003, The Features have assembled quite the catalog of accomplishments, spanning single releases on the UK's trendsetting Fierce Panda label, two well-received albums, and a long history of tours as headliners as well as supporting such like-minded artists as their pals Kings of Leon.
"We've always kept moving with new material," Haas says. "Even when we rehearse, we tend to not go through old songs. I've seen a lot of bands that rehearse the material down to where I think everyone would get bored of it. When we get together, even if it's to rehearse for a tour, we tend to work on new ideas."
"That's the exciting part for us," says Pelham, "to be in a practice space, creating a song. The more we do that, the more fun we have as a band. We like touring and playing live, but the creative process of putting a song together is the rush for everybody. So the more we can write and create, the more excitement there is within the band."
