Oceansize have checked in with the official "Feed to Feed" box set news and pre-order info...
"Here's the official blurb on our forthcoming LIVE 4xCD/3xDVD boxset, 'Feed To Feed':
Here is a record of 3 shows Oceansize played last year to celebrate our tenth anniversary of existence in this star spangled business.
In the illustrious surroundings of Manchester's pokey but precious Roadhouse (where we rocked the foundations many years before our mild and sluggish ascent into not-even-D-list infamy), we performed our three albums live, not to mention a bunch of b-sides and the quite-fucking-long-in-itself-actually 'Music For Nurses' EP. We played virtually every song we've ever written. So that kind of makes it nearly four albums worth, really.
The Roadhouse gigs were the best in our history ('IMHO' as they say on the internet). Sure we've played to much bigger audiences, of literally TENS more, but the Roadhouse, for those nights, was ram-jammed full of rabid, enthused, passionate and downright bespectacled Oceansize fans from all over the world. One chap even chose to piss himself rather than walk 10 paces to the toilet and lose his place at the front of the crowd. That's the level of dedication we inspire.
And so here it is. The inevitable DVD/CD boxset. Clocking in at about 9 hours (!), the whole spine-tingling, throat shredding, bowel loosing thrill of it all is captured here forever. Every bum note. Every forgotten lyric. That bit where i missed a cue cos i forgot where my fucking volume control was. That massive bead of sweat that lingers on the end of Steve's nose for minutes on end. The unflattering camera angles (all 5 of them). Every fucking Oceansize album to date performed LIVE. In your home.
Next, I plan to remove all the mirrors from my house. On completion of this epic project I never ever wish to see my own face again. Enjoy it, for fucks sake.”- Mike Vennart

The audio cds of the boxset will be split as above – but with all encores (over the three nights) compiled separately on a fourth cd.
YOU can pre-order your copy of this utter indulgence at THESE stores -
OR IF YOU ARE ONE OF THE AMERICANS -
Technical shizzle - it's PAL, region free. The DVD's audio are in 5.1, regardless of what the fucking listing says, and despite the numerous and all too fucking frequent attempts at it's correction. Twats.
These are already selling priddy well so get yer skates on; there's only 5000 of the buggers.
