Third of the Scottish bands featured this week (Tijuana Bibles on Monday and Laykiller Caterpillar on Tuesday - do pay attention) is the increasingly impressive Fatherson. With the long awaited, much vaunted album about to be released (7th April) they're embarking on a UK album release tour and only this morning have released a video for one of the new tracks - 'I Like Not Knowing'. The good news for me is I've had a listen to the album on the QT and I can assure you the hype is not without merit - the bad news for you is, the wait 'til April 7th!

In the meantime 'I Like Not Knowing' - produced by the inimitable Bruce Rintoul - has been released along with a shiny new, well crafted video that involves a lot of running, jumping and splashing for your listening and visual pleasure. It's a lyrically reflective yet musically joyful track and will be well received at the upcoming live shows.

Fatherson are a four piece based in Glasgow and formed in Kilmarnock. They have been making waves in the Scottish music scene following a string of supports with bands such as Frightened Rabbit, Panic! at the Disco, Feeder, Twin Atlantic and Idlewild.

Fatherson have released two singles. “Hometown”, 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. 2012 saw the release of “First Born”, strengthening the band's reputation & helping to build a fanbase all over the country.

Following the inclusion of a song on BBC Radio 1's Introducing playlist, the band performed on the BBC Introducing stage at T in the Park where their set was aired on BBC2. Gaining experience through further festival appearances during the summer culminated in a trip to America for an industry showcase, laying the foundations there for the future.
They completed their year with their biggest headline tour to date packing out venues such as The Garage in Glasgow, the Liquid Rooms in Edinburgh and The Ironworks in Inverness.

In 2013, in-between recording their debut album, the band have been playing around the country including appearances at The Great Escape in Brighton,This Is Fake DIY in London, Stag & Dagger at the ABC 1 in Glasgow and the Main Stage at Rockness. Fatherson play a few selected festivals and shows throughout the summer and are currently planning a UK tour in November.
