Straight from Scotland is a band that has been kept a Scottish secret for far too long. Fatherson recently released their third album Sum Of All Your Parts along with a set of new videos to accompany the release of their new album. The album was produced by Claudius Mittendorfer, whose previous credits include Weezer, Interpol, and Franz Ferdinand. The series of videos recently released with the new album include “Making Waves”, “Charm School”, and “Reflection”. You can check out “Making Waves” here:
Fatherson have traditionally been a word of mouth band. The devotion of their fans saw the last album jump straight to No. 2 in the Scottish album charts as well as performing strongly in the U.K and playing with bands like Kings of Leon and Biffy Clyro. The band has sold out shows like Glasgow’s Barrowland and the London Scala.
On the new album, the band shares:
“We’re really excited to finally have ‘Sum of All Your Parts’ out there in the world! With the help of producer Claudius Mittendorfer, we feel we’ve created our most exciting and honest album yet. The vast majority of every recording on this album was the three of us together in our room, trying our best – and we hope everyone who follows our band love it as much as we do.”
The sound of Fatherson brings faith back to the lost art of a good rock song. The kind of good music that digs down deep to the soul level. They are the unforgettable moment of that 90’s feel good song in a millennial world. 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. The album is available for purchase HERE.
And If music is not your forte then maybe you can sharpen up your cooking skills with the band because they recently released the first episode of their cooking show, how awesome is that!
I'm a photojournalist who is passionate about music. I love the adrenaline of shooting live concerts. Photography has given me the opportunity to photograph some of today's most legendary bands, and entertainers. When I'm not photographing music you can find me on the runway shooting New York and Philadelphia Fashion Week.
