The LaFontaines are back on tour in November.
The Scottish band, featuring singer Kerr Okan, guitarist Iain Findlay, guitarist/keyboard player Darren McCaughey, bassist John Gerard, and drummer Jamie Keenan will be hitting the road in support of their new album ‘Common Problem’.
The follow-up to their 2015 debut LP ‘Class’ is released on 27 October and the group’s tour reaches London’s Boston Music Room on 21 November.
“‘Common Problem’ is a much darker record than our debut release,” says Okan. “We’re not as young and naive as we were in our early twenties. We’ve been around the world as a band, seen a lot of things and discovered our one big Common Problem…
“There is a lot of angst, truth and reality held within this album.”
Produced by Joe Cross, who’s worked with The Courteeners, the 12-track LP is billed as “an explosive, angst ridden record, darker than the last and laced with truth and reality”. It has a lot to live up to, as their debut album charted in the UK Top 100 and Scottish Top 10, reached number one in the UK Indie Breakers chart, and hit over three million plays on Spotify.
In the live arena, The LaFontaines have sold out headline shows at Glasgow’s Barrowlands and ABC, played London’s Koko, and the main stage at T In The Park. This year alone, they’ve performed at The Great Escape, Reading and Leeds Festivals, TRNSMT, and Download.
