22 – Southampton – Joiners
24 – Manchester – Sound Control
25 – Gloucester - Underground Festival
In November 2015, the band announced they were taking a break and issued the following statement :
“For the last six years FTR has encompassed the five of our lives, and we have seen and done things that we never thought possible. But behind the scene, normal life carries on, and we all try and juggle the band with our other commitments in life (families, wives, mortgages, businesses etc). The older we have got, and the more successful the band has grown to be, the harder the juggling act has become.
It has come to light in the last few weeks that for some in the band, committing to any more is an impossible task. We need to take a breath from being FTR, to see through an increasingly large mountain of personal commitments so that we can continue with the band next year.”
With their last performance being none other than Reading and Leeds Festival’s main stage, it’s safe to say that the boys have some unfinished business to attend to with frontman, Lee Tobin warning fans of the forthcoming chaos.
“Guys, what can we say? It’s been a while! Playing live has always been a huge part of Feed The Rhino and it’s been way too long. In September, we will be hitting the road to reunite with you. Make sure you don’t miss out. Trust us when we say these shows will not disappoint. Body Armour may be required!”
Before the band’s break, they had just unleashed their new track, “Featherweight” along with a ground-breaking 360˙ video. This was their first new offering since 2014’s juggernaut record “The Sorrow and The Sound”. The band are rumoured to be locked away finishing up where the song left of.
Ticket’s for the band’s newly announced shows will be on sale from Friday 8th July through: www.myticket.co.uk.
