Fatherson have been making a name for themselves in Scotland for sometime now – selling out their last Glasgow show, over 500 people singing every word. And that infectious support has pulled them out above their peers, cultivating a dedication amongst their fanbase that trancends the norm. They’re a group that are important to those who know, and 2014 – with the release of their debut album, announced for 7th April via A Modern Way, and further shows south of the border – will see that importance spread signifcantly.
The band have supported the likes of Idlewild, Frightened Rabbit and Twin Atlantic and “I Am An Island” will be coming April 7th on A Modern Way. “I Like Not Knowing” has been the first recording from the album sessions to see the light of day, and contains exactly the kind of propulsive, anthemic rock that their fans have come to expect from the band.
Fatherson have also been included in a compilation released in the last week by Radio 1’s Ally McCrae called New Moons: Volume 1. They feature alongside other buzzed about groups including Slaves, Laurel and Tall Ships.
The band were recently main support to one of 2014’s most widely touted bands, Lonely The Brave and recently announced their own UK tour for April.
