An original incarnation of the band was formed in 1992 under the name of "Reel" by the remaining members Grant Nicholas, Jon Lee and Simon Blight of electroacoustic group Raindancer, after the departure of their guitarist John Canham, although Simon Blight departed in 1992 to make way for Taka Hirose in 1994, after the band had used many session bassists from 1992 to 1994. Feeder's lineup after signing with The Echo Label in the same year of their formation consisted of Grant Nicholas (guitar/vocals) Jon Lee (drums) and Taka Hirose (bass), while demos sent out to radio and venues to gain gigs still featured session bassists. In January 2002, Jon Lee died by suicide at home in Miami. Former Skunk Anansie drummer Mark Richardson began to record and play with the band before being made an official member. In May 2009 he left Feeder to reform Skunk Anansie. Since Richardson's departure, Feeder have variously employed drummers Karl Brazil, Damon Wilson, Tim Trotter, and Geoff Holroyde for recording and touring work.

Feeder's music has been inspired by a wide variety of artists and styles, including The Police, Nirvana and Smashing Pumpkins. The band's sound was radically changed from that of Rain Dancer on their debut release the Two Colours EP (1995), but has since introduced more acoustic aspects to their music, including elements of pianos and string orchestras.

Feeder garnered media attention in 2001 for their third album, Echo Park and its lead single "Buck Rogers", which later become a UK Top five single. In 2002, the band released their fourth album Comfort in Sound, being their first since the loss of their drummer Jon Lee earlier in the year. The album touched on many themes of loss and coming to terms with death, although it also explored themes of positivity. Comfort in Sound is Feeder's most successful studio album to date, selling over 507,277 copies in the United Kingdom between October 2002 and October 2017.

After the campaign for their 2006 singles compilation was complete, the band would later drop out of mainstream radio attention, while still charting six more top 20 albums with the latest being 2019's Tallulah, making the top 5.

  • Unlike the band's other videos, the video for "Side By Side" is a compilation of video clips from various Japanese news media agencies of the destruction caused by the 2011 Tsunami, and as such, has no single director.
  • ”Just a Day II”, is a remake of the original video, to raise awareness of the front line workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. Two people from the original video make a second appearance.
