I don’t know much about FATHERSON, I have to be honest.
But I DO know that several people have been suggesting to me that they are ‘the next big thing’ to come out of Scotland. I also know that they come from Kilmarnock, home of ‘the last big thing’ to come from Scotland – Biffy Clyro, of course.
They have supported / toured with the likes of Idlewild, Panic At The Disco and Feeder, and were announced as winners of ‘The Best Rock / Alternative Band’ at the recent Scottish Alternative Music Awards.
FATHERSON are playing six shows in Scotland this month (fresh from having just supported Frightened Rabbit at the HMV Picture House.
14th Jam Jar, Dunfermline
15th Ironworks, Inverness
16th Tunnels, Aberdeen
17th Electric Circus, Edinburgh
18th The Doghouse, Dundee
23rd Grand Hall, Kilmarnock (hometown show)
(Tickets available here.)
The band have also been confirmed for a special one-off single launch performance at The Apple Store, Buchannan Street, Glasgow on Thursday 12 April at 7pm.
Here’s the video for their new single ‘First Born’ which is due for release on 9th April. I suspect it may not be the last you’ll see / hear from them!
