Having just completed a triumphant 13-date UK tour which saw sold-out shows up and down the country, Fatherson have announced their two biggest headline shows to date for the week of their new album release ‘Open Book’.
The band play their (adopted) home town of Glasgow and London in June with more live news to come soon. Their current single ‘Lost Little Boys’ is repeating the radio success of the debut release from the album, ‘Always’, with both tracks gaining plays at Radio 1/Radio X and Absolute.
The 12-track album shows the growth and maturity of the band as songwriters whist retaining their already classic sound. With grand anthemic tracks such as album opener track ‘Just Past The Point Of Breaking’ and the touching vulnerability of ‘Younger Days’. It was recorded at Rockfield Studios in Wales with Bruce Rintoul (Twin Atlantic and Eliza and the Bear). ‘Always’ was a good taster for the record with its momentous climb to a climatic chorus and current single ‘Lost Little Boys’ (mixed by Adam Noble (Placebo, Nothing But Thieves, Don Broco) tells a tale of friendship and growing up with a hypnotic drum beat driving the song along.
Alongside the announcement of live shows the band have also released Younger Days as part of the album pre-order.
