FEELS Share Video For Find A Way + Start European Tour This Week!
FEELS today shared the video to Find A Way, the latest song to be taken from their recent, much acclaimed second album, Post Earth.
Talking about the track, the band said: So much is at stake right now! We’re all wondering what’s gonna happen. Scientists have all these grim predictions for the future if we continue down the path we’re headed...there’s still hope but humanity really has to step it up and make some drastic changes. Will we?
Watch the video here.
Find A Way is the fourth song released from the new album, following Awful Need (“quietly anthemic” -- Clash Magazine), Car (“The track has a rebellious attitude” -- Stereogum), and Post Earth and follows some stand-out praise from the likes of The LA Times, The Financial Times and Pitchfork amongst others.
The track was produced by Tim Green (the former guitarist of punk iconoclasts Nation of Ulysses, who has worked with Sleater-Kinney, Bikini Kill, Joanna Newsom, and Jawbreaker, among others).
Their latest album, Post Earth, is a call to arms, interspersed with frustration and hope. “It wasn’t intentional to write a politically charged record,” says bassist Amy Allen, who constitutes FEELS with Laena Geronimo (guitar/vocals), Lay (guitar/vocals), and Michael Perry Rudes (drums). “But the way the world is functioning right now made it impossible to write about anything else. We all need to figure it out; we’re running out of time. The golden age is over.”
Maybe FEELS did not start their second album with a conceptual agenda, but they definitely intended to speak out: “If you have any kind of platform, you should use it for good,” Lay states. Geronimo continues, “If our wildest dreams came true, the album would sound exciting to people while also inspiring awareness and action against hate, prejudice, greed, the destruction of our environment…apathy's not cool and toppling oppression could be fun if we do it together!"
Finally, having completed a short U.S. tour in December of last year and most recently an incendiary home-town album launch show at the Echo in Los Angeles, the band head over to Europe and the U.K. this week to begin an extensive run of shows before which they play a Marc Riley session on 6Music this evening. They then return to the U.S. for a tour with Ex Hex between April 17th – May 5th.

Recent praise for Post Earth: A precision Sleater Kinney-ish rewiring of new wave guitar with cool, no-wave delivery – 4/5 Mojo
The LA quartet’s second album is more musically focused and emotionally unsettled, its once shaggy sound sculpted into post-punk precision.-- Pitchfork, 8/10
Geronimo and Lay are standout guitarists, with wide genre interests...and a combustible, captivating stage presence. Rudes and Allen lock into assertive rhythms that nod to the Stooges and Black Sabbath, with detours into dreamier Cure terrain and, occasionally, pure grinding noise. -- The Los Angeles Times
They’ve crafted a terrific out and out rock record – 4/5 DIY
