Reliably informed


Many of us can say we spent the last two years indoors, in fear and in sweatpants. Thankfully, Glaswegian alt. rock three-piece Fatherson have spent their time wisely and crafted a brand spanking new album entitled Normal Fears, which is now ready to be unleashed onto the unsuspecting public. Fatherson are due to appear at The Cluny on Wednesday 18th May (rescheduled from March at Northumbria Uni) for what is sure to be a cathartic and cleansing evening of alt. rock that is as powerful as it is tender.

Fans of Biffy Clyro and fellow Glasgow brethren Twin Atlantic will find some of the best elements of each in Fatherson’s music. However, it would cheapen the band’s efforts to just lump them in with other Scottish alt. rock heroes – truthfully I can see a world with them playing on the same bill as local boy Sam Fender and they wouldn’t be out of place in the slightest.

Fatherson haven’t graced the North East since 2019, but the region still echoes with their honest authenticity; each of their songs grow into anthemic thunderstorms that drench the listener and shroud them in charm and uplift. There won’t be a soul in Newcastle that isn’t revitalised by Fatherson’s warming glow and certainly not a dry eye in the house.

Fatherson play The Cluny, Newcastle on Wednesday 18th May.
