Fatherson are a four piece who have been making waves in the Scottish music scene following a string of supports with bands such as Frightened Rabbit, Feeder, Twin Atlantic and Idlewild. 

The group have operated under the name Fatherson since December 2011 and have released two singles. “Hometown”, released through King Tuts Recordings showcases the band’s ability to write anthemic indie songs that will be running around your head for weeks to come. April of this year also saw the band release “First Born”, which allowed the them to work on their previous success, building a fanbase all over the country.

Thanks to their inclusion on BBC Radio 1’s Introducing playlist, Fatherson made their second appearance at T in the Park in 2012 on the BBC Introducing Stage. Their set was broadcast on BBC 2 and was the highlight of a summer full of festivals for the band.

Following this Fatherson embarked upon their largest headline tour to date, packing out venues around Scotland such as The Garage in Glasgow, Liquid Rooms in Edinburgh and The Ironworks in Inverness. The band rounded off their 2012 with a trip to the USA to take part in a music industry showcase and returned to play as main support to Admiral Fallow in Glasgow's famous Barrowlands.

2013 has hit the ground running for the band, with work in full force for their debut album, Fatherson will be playing shows throughout the UK.
