Fatherson return to Clwb following a sold out show and packed Sŵn Festival set in 2019!

The upwards trajectory of Fatherson’s blossoming career serves a heartening reminder that the hype machine is no substitute for talent, authenticity and graft.

This is a band afforded no shortcuts to get where they are today, a success story built on word-of-mouth conversions. And they wouldn’t have it any other way. Attend any Fatherson gig and you’ll find a room echo with lyrics being sung back en masse by adoring fans. 

Formed 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, and garnered support shows and tours with their north-of-the-border brethren in Biffy Clyro, Frightened Rabbit, Idlewild and Twin Atlantic, as well as further dates alongside the likes of Kings Of Leon, Augustines, Enter Shikari and more.

Their third album Sum of All Your Parts (2018) saw the band reach new levels of critical acclaim, with extensive support from BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac, Clara Amfo, Huw Stephens and Phil Taggart, culminating in a European arena tour supporting Lewis Capaldi.
