Fatherson release a new single, ‘Making Waves’.
It’s taken from the third album from the trio – Ross Leighton, Marc Strain and Greg Walkinshaw. ‘Sum Of All Your Parts’ is due for release on September 14th.
The single is, we’re advised, a good indicator for the next Fatherson LP. 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.”
Marc Strain (bass) goes further when contemplating the shift in band’s sound: “As a band we’re always going to have “rocky” songs but rock music can be very formulaic and boring. We didn’t want this record to just be a carbon copy of Open Book or I Am An Island. Making Waves was the song that made us rethink our process and start to get really excited about this new album.”
The band have announced four album preview shows across the UK, alongside a handful of summer festival slots.
28 Jun – Edinburgh, Sneaky Pete’s
