Following the release of their third album, ‘Junior’ The LaFontaines have announced an massive Autumn European tour. The tour precedes a sold out run of dates earlier in the year, plus massive festival slots throughout the summer, including Reading & Leeds Festivals.
Junior is the band’s third album which broke them into the Top 40, and follows 2017’s Common Problem and their 2015 debut Class, which saw them hit #1 in the Indie Breakers Chart and make the Top 10 in the Scottish chart.
The LaFontaines fuse the guitar swagger of Kasabian with the no nonsense delivery of The Streets. Their songs pull from the same rock foundation as Twenty One Pilots but with a working class bravado and punk angst added to the mix. Their live shows are akin to the likes of The Beastie Boys setting off fireworks after a Scottish Cup Final. There is no band in the world quite like The LaFontaines.
Over the last 3 years alone, they have supported the likes of Anderson Paak, Kaiser Chiefs, Mike Shinoda, All Time Low and Rag ‘n’ Bone Man.
Their live show is their greatest asset and the band have gained fans from Motherwell to Mumbai with their energetic and bold live performances. There is simply no one else like The LaFontaines – a band who personally guarantee that if you attend one of their shows and don’t have “the fuckin’ best time”, they’ll give you your money back…
