Justin Curfman, an award-winning animator/filmmaker from Atlanta, Georgia, had written and produced pieces of music that never found a place in any of his films. With support from guitar/bass player, Todd Caras and percussionist, Danny Hunt, Justin Curfman formed a band to rearrange the pieces as songs and play them live. The band took their band name from one of their songs' titles, "Feeding Fingers" (which was inspired by a dream where Curfman witnessed girls standing in a single-file waiting to put their fingers into small holes drilled into white walls in a white room, where behind the walls, men would wait to eat the girls' fingers.)
The group released their first full-length album Wound in Wall in 2007 as a joint effort between Stickfigure Records, and Justin Curfman's media company, Tephramedia. The album was well-received and drew comparisons to the earlier works of The Cure, Joy Division, Echo & the Bunnymen, Siouxsie and the Banshees and Cocteau Twins. Because of these comparisons and acceptance of post-punk and the Gothic subculture in the Eastern world, the band's most prominent audience was in Middle- to Eastern-European countries.
Since the release of Wound In Wall, Feeding Fingers has consistently performed live in America and has appeared on several radio broadcasts (including two apprearances National Public Radio) and in entertainment and arts magazines, weeklies, and newspapers.
A music video for "Fireflies Make Us Sick," a track off the Wound In Wall album, was completed in 2010 (3 years after the album was released and a year after their second album was released). The music video was directed by award-winning digital artist, Steven Lapcevic. The video premiered at Ultra Music Festival in 2010.
Their second album, Baby Teeth, a more collaborative effort than being solely composed by Curfman, was released in the US in January 2009, and internationally in March 2009. This album was a joint-effort between Stickfigure Records and Tephramedia with co-operation for European distribution and promotional outlets, such as NetManagement Musik Verlag and PromoFabrik, based in Germany. This album reached #16 on the Global Gothic Chart and found a place on the Alternative Top 100 in Portugal. Baby Teeth was also ranked #4 on the Best of 2009 at Gothic Paradise. This album, unlike Wound In Wall, helped Feeding Fingers finally reach a US audience through college radio stations. Despite the acclaim, Justin Curfman mentions in a 2010 interview that Baby Teeth was "very dense and bleak and just filled with confusion," and plainly refuses to ever repeat anything like it again.
In March 2010, Feeding Fingers embarked on their first European tour (playing in The Netherlands, Romania, Poland and Italy, where they shared the bill with Nitzer Ebb.) Feeding Fingers were also invited to play at Wave-Gotik-Treffen, the world's largest goth festival, but had to pull out shortly after the band line-up was released because of "matters beyond [their] control".
On April 2010, Justin Curfman announced that a live album is in the works and to be released in May 2010. In the same interview, Curfman also hinted to a future relocation. As of May 2010, Justin Curfman resides in Germany.
On May 19, 2010, Anything But Water, the band's first live album, was digitally released.
The band's much anticipated third album, titled, "Detach Me From My Head", was released on September 28, 2010. This album was produced by legendary radio personality, Jim "Coyote J" Battan and Feeding Fingers' chief manager, David Israel Nunez.
