Biography

FEILED

In the year 2003 there was only Anton Laurila and his vision of a band playing melancholic, melodic rock. Soon enough he had gathered a band around him, and they released their first ep, Lost, in spring 2003. It was recorded in a studio with roses all over it… They obtained some cult following, and quite a few young girls lost their hearts to Feiled…

Anton was convicted that his songs had the ability to move people around the world, and he focused on making even better songs about his perception of the world around him.

Feiled was among the first bands to use MySpace to gather up a fan base. With the help of to the superb songs and MySpace, they soon had a remarkable ground level following in Europe, and Feiled fan sites popped up in Italy, Poland, Mexico and Germany.

In Finland the awareness of Feiled grew, and in autumn 2004 Poko Records signed the band on to its Gaga Goodies label. The first album, Midnight Poems, was full of heart-rending classic rock songs with plenty of melodrama. It was produced by Mr Janne Joutsenniemi (Suburban Tribe), and was released in April 2005. It was followed by some touring around Finland and the release of numerous hit singles.

In the summer 2006, Anton met a man who played an integral part in the Feiled saga: Nick Triani. Together they chose the best songs out of the material Anton had written for the second Feiled album, and the band began hectic rehearsal and pre-production sessions with Nick. The outcome of these sessions is Testify – the album, which Anton had always wanted to make. With this glorious album and the all-new line-up, the band is now ready to to do what it does best: to play loud and addictive rock’n’roll gigs. Anton has still kept his vision and talent intact, and finally Feiled sounds like – Feiled.

“With this album I want to show my love for all the musical styles I feel represent me as a person. In Testify, there are elements of punk, goth, pop, Jeff Buckley, Elliot Smith, Mew, Muse, Cure, metal, progressive rock and rock’n’roll, I think Testify is quite a schizophrenic album, but in a good way. Just like I am. Killing and loving in the same package.” Anton Laurila

Lyrics

Invincible

Written By: Feiled

The air is full of promises, floating like bubbles in my head
I blink my eyes and watch them disappear
should I, follow the trail of fear,& confront, what lies deep down there
my con-sense is clear, salvation is here

We are invincible
we seem unbreakable
we need a miracle
to wake us from this dream, to change the air we breathe

The time I`ve been waiting for you
has felt, like eternity to me
I cross my hands and pray for a moment of peace

I would like to feel the way you do
to see this all, like through your eyes
but the prize that you ask, is too high for me

chorus

Always be yourself she said, never pretend she said
affection never delivers easy
the world is out there she said, claim your place
but what if this world`s, supposed to tear me apart
