Fatherson Heads to SXSW 2019
Indie rock band Fatherson is thrilled to announce their return to the United States for this year's South by Southwest Music Festival, taking place March 11-17 in Austin, TX. For a full list of showcases and upcoming tour dates, please see below or visit www.fathersonband.com.
Last year Fatherson released their newest album, Sum Of All Your Parts. The band's third full-length album, Sum Of All Your Parts has been heralded by Billboard, Alternative Press, PopMatters, as well as Spotify's New Music Friday playlist, and more. Fans can stream the album in full on Spotify and Apple Music, or purchase it online at ffm.to/sumofallyourparts.
Fatherson have traditionally been a word of mouth band. Attend any of their shows and you will find a room echo with lyrics being sung back en masse by adoring fans. The devotion of their fans saw the last album jump straight in at No. 2 in the Scottish album charts as well as performing strongly in the U.K. Other highlights include packing a 12,000 person tent at T in the Park and playing with Kings of Leon in Vienna.
The band have established themselves as a potent live force, having sold out Glasgow's Barrowlands as well as London's Scala on their previous run of dates. Together with blistering shows and a rabid fanbase Fatherson operate in a distinctly Scottish plane of sentimentally - it is no coincidence they have previously toured with the likes of Frightened Rabbit, Biffy Clyro and Idlewild.
Fatherson first announced their new album Sum Of All Your Parts with the release of "Making Waves" - a song indicative of what to expect from the next FathersonLP. According to Ross Leighton (guitar/vocals), the song "defined how the album would sound" as well as being a "heart on your sleeve slacker tune with a tonne of groove." The single does mark a change of direction for the band - the rousing and anthemic choruses remain but there is a newfound edge best summed up in the stunning video for "Making Waves."
Fatherson is Ross Leighton (guitar/vocals), Marc Strain (Bass), and Greg Walkinshaw (drums). The band released their new album Sum Of All Your Parts on September 14th.
