The LaFontaines have announced the release date of their new album – as well as details of a headline tour which includes a visit to Edinburgh in June.
New album Junior will be out on June 14 via So Recordings and it is proceeded by brand new single All In. You can check out the video below.
Tickets for the Motherwell band’s headline tour – which includes a visit to The Caves on June 17 – will go on sale this Friday (March 15) at 10am and will be available via The LaFontaine’s website, www.thelafontaines.co.uk
Proving themselves one of the most exciting bands to emerge from Scotland in recent years, The LaFontaines deliver a unique sound that fuses the guitar swagger of Kasabian, the edgy hip-hop delivery of The Streets and the electronic-pop undertones of Twenty One Pilots to create a style that pushes the boundaries of rock.
Junior is the band’s third album and follows 2017’s Common Problem and their 2015 debut Class, which saw them hit No.1 in the Indie Breakers Chart and make the Top 10 in the Scottish chart.
Renowned for their electrifying live shows, the band have previously been on tour with Anderson Paak, Twin Atlantic and All Time Low and last year were main support to Don Broco across the UK and Europe.
Also with a number of major festivals under their belt including Reading & Leeds, Download, The Great Escape, 2000 Trees, T in the Park, Belladrum, NH7, Secret Garden Party, TRNSMT and Reeperbahn, 2019 is set to be another great year for the band with more exciting announcements to come.
