The Feds

The Feds


The Feds are a loud, hard rock band from Dallas, TX. At a time when the hard rock genre is becoming more and more fomulaic, The Feds prove that you can still create rock interesting and daring enough to make you put up the devil horns without feeling like an idiot.



Dallas, Texas - A Touch of Panic, the brand new Tribunal Records release from The Feds, is the most significant and inspiring Feds record to date. A Touch of Panic hits stores August 7, 2007.

As longtime friends who met in the Dallas rock scene, The Feds have strived to constantly challenge themselves and their fans with each of their albums. The band’s latest, A Touch Of Panic, is no exception.

“We’ve never had any rules attached to our songwriting. We try to leave all apprehension and fear at the rehearsal room door. I think that’s why we continue to evolve as musicians. Everyone in this band truly loves music,” says front man, Matt Slider.

This kind of open-minded work ethic is definitely a testament to the track list for A Touch Of Panic. High-energy songs like “Saturday Girl”, “Housefire” and “Alive” grip tight with Slider’s testosterone fueled screams and the combination of Matt Wright and Jason Jones’ guitar prowess. These songs are complimented by rich, layered tracks such as “Apartment Song”. “Seven (If You Run)” and “From You, To Me” - which portray The Feds in a whole new light - one that burns bright as soon as they step on any stage.

After playing nearly 150 shows in 2006 alone, The Feds have plans to tour even more in support of A Touch Of Panic. Having recently added new bass player, Dave Shafer, to compliment the thunderous pounding of drummer Ben Jeffries, The Feds have created heart-pumping rock and roll at it’s best . . . claiming no allegiance to fashion while paying tribute to the history of rock.
