"Shatter" is a song by the British rock band Feeder. "Shatter" was first released as B-side to "Tumble and Fall" and as a bonus to the Japanese edition of Pushing the Senses; it has since been included on the band's compilation album The Singles. Released in October 2005, the single was backed up with "Tender" from the fifth studio album Pushing the Senses, the combination reaching number 11 in the UK Singles Chart. "Shatter" appears in the end credits of the English language dub of the Russian film Night Watch (Russian: Ночной дозор, Nochnoy Dozor).

Style[edit]

"Tender" is a piano-driven ballad, with guitar, bass and drums.

"Shatter" charted at #57 on the top 100 UK airplay chart. "Tender" reached #55 but did not pick up as much audience figures overall, due to not being given very much radio play due to "Shatter" being the main track to promote the release.

Music video[edit]

The video for "Tender" is a band performance video, and first appeared on the "Depot sessions" section of the Pushing the Senses DVD bonus disc.

Reception[edit]

The single peaked at number 11, and became Feeder's 10th Top 20 single. The video for "Shatter", reached number 1 on the UK 3 download chart. The song was a live regular between 2005-2009, with it later making a return to setlists in 2017 due to fan votes on their Facebook page. It is one of the most popular tracks on The Singles amongst fans; a compilation that has sold over 517,000 copies in the U.K. alone as of October 2016.

Media usage[edit]

The two tracks on the single are played during the end credits of the English dub of Night Watch. "Shatter" was originally a part of the Gran Turismo 4 Original Soundtrack.
