Fatherson are an Indie rock 3 piece from Glasgow. Formed in 2010 they quickly achieved a sizeable following around the city's vibrant music scene. An EP release in 2011 was followed by what is seen by many as their signature song 'First Born'. Their 2014 debut album 'I am an Island' charted at No 5 on the iTunes indie chart and was championed by radio heavyweights such as Zane Lowe, Huw Stephens and Ally McCrae. Since the album release, the guys have been busy touring, writing and recording. With a new album recorded at Rockfield Studios complete, the guys are genuinely excited by what may be their finest work to date. We managed to spend an afternoon with them at the Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg on September 24th 2015, where they were one of only a handful of bands to play multiple slots.
How was your gig last night?
Ross Leighton (Vocals/Guitar): It was great, really, really good fun.
Marc Strain (Bass): Really good fun, we played Hamburg almost a year ago with 'We Were Promised Jetpacks'. Last night's venue was in the same building so it was quite nice to be back there. The gig was for Napster, it was a kind of party thing. Really loud!
