Ahead of the June 14 release of latest album Junior, Scotland’s The LaFontaines have shared the video for their brand new single, Alpha. You can watch it here.
Boasting groove-laden backbeats, a suave rap flow reminiscent of Mike Skinner and a gigantic pop chorus, Alpha displays the band at their very best – melding genres together to deliver a powerful and awe-inspiring punch.
“Alpha comes as result of the losses we’ve had recently in this area from young males, predominately of the ‘Alpha’ stereotype,” says frontman Kerr Okan.
“I’ve often struggled with my emotions – anything other than aggression was always seen as a weakness and something that should be locked away.
“Alpha marks the point in my own journey where I realised that there was something real to be gained from embracing the spectrum of emotions – whether you’re male or not.”
From opening for the legendary Mike Shinoda to winning over audiences countrywide during their UK tour supporting Deaf Havana earlier this year, The LaFontaines are showing no signs of slowing down.
The band also embark on a UK headline tour in June to support the release of their new album.
Tickets for the tour are on sale now, and are available via the LaFontaine’s website – thelafontaines.co.uk
