Fatherson are an alternative-rock band from Glasgow, Scotland known best for their distinct brand of soaring, melodic anthems and blistering live show. Having formed in 2010 at the age of 17, the band have toured relentlessly across Scotland and the rest of the UK, gaining a legion of loyal fans.

This hard work has paid off, with the band selling-out their last Glasgow show - 800 people singing every word. They also attracted over 8000 people to their performance on the King Tut’s Wah Wah Stage at T in the Park Festival in Summer 2014, and have won-over thousands of new fans through support dates with the likes of Frightened Rabbit, Panic at the Disco, Twin Atlantic, Idlewild, Feeder and Lonely The Brave. The band have also become a favourite on the UK festival circuit, having played at Rockness, T in the Park, Brighton's Great Escape, Stag & Dagger, Belladrum and Wakestock.

In 2014, Fatherson released their debut album ‘I Am An Island’ to critical acclaim from some of the UK’s most respected outlets including Kerrang!, Rock Sound and Clash as well as airplay from major radios stations including BBC Radio 1 (Zane Lowe, Greg James, Huw Stephens), BBC Scotland, and XFM. Lead single ‘I Like Not Knowing’ was also voted ‘most loved’ on BBC Radio 1’s Review Show, winning them a playlist spot on the show and several spins since.

The band made their first foray into mainland Europe in September 2014, supporting fellow Scots We Were Promised Jetpacks on a month-long tour covering the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and France with a follow-up headline tour expected in February 2015 to support the German release of ‘I Am An Island’.

Fatherson have been announced in the first wave of acts to showcase at SXSW in Austin, Texas in March 2015.
