Rock band Fatherson have released their brand new album, Sum Of All Your Parts. Fatherson’s third full-length album, Sum Of All Your Parts has recently been featured on 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.
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.”
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.
The band recently 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.”
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.”
