Screamfeeder. A noisy pop/indie rock band from Australia. Lovers of loud and beautiful music since they were each conceived, they have been compared to all the greats; Husker Du, The Jam, The Replacements and The Who. Contradictions and dualities abound within Screamfeeder, and therein lies their beauty.
They’re the band you grew up with, whose songs are imprinted into the DNA of every music-lover who came of age in the 90’s and 00’s. A band of eternally-youthful fuzz-pop darlings who, however improbably, have continued to play together for 30 years and somehow have not only gotten
better, but have become even more loved.
A band that combines loud with beautiful, intense with joyous, chaotic with precise and pulls it all together in a way that very few acts ever manage.
Two tours cancelled in the last two years mirrors most musicians’ recent experiences, but 2021 saw Tim and Kellie write a bunch of new songs, their first set since 2017’s Pop Guilt, and the band came knuckled down to create a new album. Entitled simply Five Rooms, it was released to unanimous
acclaim in May 2022. It’s another Screamfeeder classic, mixing sharp pop hooks with slower wallof-guitar anthems, a record unlike anything else on offer at the moment and proof that great songwriters never lose their touch.
“After five years of waiting, Brisbane alt-rock icons Screamfeeder have returned with their triumphant new
album, Five Rooms… it’s Screamfeeder at their very best.” (Rolling Stone)
Five Rooms was recorded with producer Anna Laverty (Courtney Barnett, Camp Cope) and mixed by Beau Sorenson (Superchunk, Bob Mould) and Travis Harrison (Guided By Voices, Built To Spill), who have delivered a thoroughly
modern rock record that fairly bursts out of the speakers. The album features a 50/50 split of Tim and Kellie songs, highlighting their songwriting chemistry as well as differences. Kellie’s songs are epic, hypnotic and grandiose. Tim’s are short, sharp and punchy. All the songs have a raw, immediate feel; after 30 years you can tell Screamfeeder really like standing in a room, rocking out together.
After a power-packed series of rapturously-received shows across the country in June 2022, Screamfeeder will return to the live stage in December 2023 with more to come in 2024. You might want to be there to see for yourself what everyone is saying – this band is at the peak of its live
Screamfeeder believe in writing good songs and performing them like their lives depend on it. Old school? Shit yeah, and proud of it.
“Five Rooms is a thunderous and evocative album: filled with a certain melodic sweetness that is
underpinned by a raw, organic instrumentation with shades of light and darkness, subtle at times, fuzzy and
muscular at other times. This is a band at their very best, showing creativity has no use by date.” (Backseat
