Still working on that hot first release.



We Feed Alone was formed in 2009 by Eric Straton (Drums) and Doug Wagner (Vocals, Guitar).  Steven Gillis (Filter, Naked Raygun) was approached by them to record and produce their debut album. 


The album was worked on intermittently from 2010 to 2012.  There were several critical steps, which included the formation of a full band that needed to be addressed to make the album what it is.  From Gillis’ perspective, “There was no other option than to be patient with this project.  These guys are the real deal who came to me with some really great songs and I remember the steps we took on the Filter records (Title of Record and the Amalgamut) to do things the right way.  Each stage, from pre-production to getting the right sounds and great performances couldn’t be rushed or sacrificed without jeopardizing the end product.  We were picky with every detail to get the album sounding as good as we could. Bands as good as We Feed Alone don’t walk into your studio every day.”


Regarding song content, Doug Wagner (vocalist/songwriter) comments on his lyrical content as “a reflection of my feelings and emotions relating to life and love.  I write songs about relationships, about my friends fighting wars, about injustices on Chicago streets, and about the way I perceive the world changing around me.”


The full five piece band was completed with the addition of Scout Hughes on bass, Erling Johnson on lead guitar, and Jeff Schwier on rhythm guitar.  With the completed lineup, We Feed Alone was able to finish the debut album and begin performing shows in the summer of 2012.
