Fatherson are an alternative-rock band from Glasgow, Scotland known best for their distinct brand of soaring, melodic anthems.

Having formed in 2010 at the age of 17, the band have been striking a resonant chord with crowds at home in Scotland these past three, four years. Two singles (‘Hometown’, ‘First Born’) secured national support and airplay from Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, Zane Lowe and Greg James.

They were followed in 2014 by the band’s self-released debut album, I Am An Island and there was an unexpectedly packed-out show in the 12,000-capacity King Tut’s tent at T In The Park.

Further afield, they have played with Idlewild,Twin Atlantic, Lonely The Brave, We Were Promised Jetpacks, Enter Shikari, Frightened Rabbit and recently completed a comprehensive UK tour with Prides, their music mining an emotional and energetic hinterland somewhere in between those bands.

In November 2015 the band launched the first single taken from their follow up record, ‘Always’, securing further support at Radio 1 & Radio X, amongst others.

2016 will see the first fruits of the Scottish trio’s new deal with major label indie imprint Easy Life / Sony RED (home to Lower Than Atlantis, Arcane Roots and Black Peaks). It’s an album that is set fair to propel Fatherson from intense and intensive fanbase to extensive one.
