DEATHSTARS were formed in Strömstad, Sweden in 2000 – born of a variety of influences ranging from black and death metal, to rock ’n’ roll and industrial. They’ve released four full-length studio albums to date; Synthetic Generation (2003), Termination Bliss (2006), Night Electric Night (2009), and The Perfect Cult (2014). The band has stated that Synthetic Generation was a bit of an experiment and challenge, the members all having come from underground extreme metal bands, which was more familiar territory at that point.Termination Bliss garnered the group immediate attention, the band touring with Cradle Of Filth in 2006 in its wake - whilst follow-up Night Electric Night launched them internationally, lauding them enormous praise and landing them a tour with Rammstein in arenas throughout Europe. Latest album The Perfect Cult saw them continue their impeccable run – welcoming their first ever North American tour, and sadly the departure of Cat Casino, who has now returned to the fold.

A Manchester Academy 30th Anniversary Celebration - Feeder

A Manchester Academy 30th Anniversary Celebration

Friday 28th May

Academy

Commemorating three-decades of storming rock’n’roll shows in the North, the Academy are very pleased to announce a special celebratory show in the new year from a band who have earned a special place in its history.

On 28th May 2021, the venue will welcome Welsh indie-rock mainstays: FEEDER.

Having blown-away crowds on its turf some 12 times since their formation, The Academy has been a reliable haunt and regular pit-stop for Feeder at all stages of their twisting career. 

From their incendiary first visit as a fledgling grunge upstarts on the Kerrang Twist Tour of 1996 (supporting Lodestar and Crazy Gods), to taking the stage as bonafide world-conquering arena slayers on the ‘Tallulah’ tour of 2018; Feeder have proven themselves time-after-time and are established favourites with the Academy crowd.

Returning to the venue in 2021, expect a roller-coaster ride down memory lane with a set packed with the innumerable anthems that have lined their extraordinary career. With 10 celebrated studio albums
