Earlier this May, tens of thousands of fans were shocked and saddened when Feed Me announced he would be retiring from touring. He cited various projects, mainly in graphic design, for his departure. Gooch later clarified his ambiguous tweets in a Facebook message, and stated he was only taking a hiatus and would resume touring.
The sad spirits will be lifted today with the news of a full album from Feed Me, as well as a brand new label. This is what Jon himself had to say about the new album, titled Calamari Tuesday.
“This is my first full-length album. It represents a journey through various styles of music, 2 years of intensive touring around the world in a variety of incredible locations, and the construction of my live show and imaginary friend, from sketches into tangible reality. It’s something I now see as a collaboration between me and Feed Me. It’s very serious.”
The first single ''Rat Trap'' was released on iTunes on the 9th of September.
