"Tumble and Fall" was the first single released from British rock band Feeder's 2005 album Pushing the Senses. It reached #5 in the UK charts, the group's highest placed single along with "Buck Rogers".

The song features backing vocals from Fran Healy and Dougie Payne from Travis, who both sing the backing vocals in the final chorus.[1] It was revealed by Fran that the band were recording what would be their fifth studio album The Boy With No Name in a nearby studio room. At the same time Feeder were recording what would be Pushing the Senses and ended up working with Feeder for this track.

CD1 of the single features the popular "Shatter", which was later released as a single itself after a fans petition was put forward, and was planned to be on the album but was finally not included as the record company believed it wouldn't fit in with the feel of the rest of the album, despite Grant Nicholas' protests.[2]

Despite reaching the top 5 and equaling "Buck Rogers" chart placing, it would become the smallest selling top 5 single of the 2000s, with 19,400 sales and is seen by many fans as the band's worse song to be released as a single.
