Forming in Kilmarnock, Scotland, in early 2010, Fatherson immediately captured hearts with their raw, honest alt-rock sound. Inspired by Scottish stoicism as much as their own personal turmoil, debut album I Am An Island and its 2016 follow-up Open Book were masterclasses in full-throttle rock songwriting, garnering support slots with the likes of Biffy Clyro, Frightened Rabbit, Idlewild and Twin Atlantic, as well as further dates alongside the likes of Kings Of Leon, Augustines and more.
