Leading up to the release of their second album ‘Open Book’, Scottish trio Fatherson have a new single available from 14th April 2016.
‘Just Past The Point Of Breaking’ is the follow up to ‘Always’ and ‘Lost Little Boys’ both of which have had considerable plays on the likes of Radio 1, Radio X and Amazing Radio. Having previously announced their biggest shows to date in Glasgow and London, they have now confirmed several festival appearances for the summer with more to follow.
Since their self released debut ‘I Am An Island’ in 2014 the band have continued to gain fans throughout the UK with dates supporting the likes of Idlewild, Frightened Rabbit and Twin Atlantic as well as appearances at festivals including T in the Park and The Great Escape. They then went in to record at Rockfield Studios in Wales with Bruce Rintoul (Twin Atlantic and Eliza and the Bear) in August/September where ‘Open Book’ came together. The album was mixed by Adam Noble (Placebo, Nothing But Thieves, Don Broco). The band ended 2015 with an extensive UK tour with Prides, before heading out on their own run of dates to accompany the release of ‘Always’ in February of this year.
Lead vocalist Ross has described the new single as “a track about finding out that something you missed maybe wasn’t as big a deal as you thought it was at the time.”
