Fresh from their storming Belladrum appearance and having recently supported Rag ’N’ Bone Man at the Edinburgh Summer Sessions, Scottish rockers The LaFontaines are set to return to the North East in spectacular fashion – taking over The Cluny in Newcastle on 19th September for a live performance.
Proving one of the most exciting bands to have emerged from Scotland in recent years, The LaFontaines boast a unique sound that fuses the guitar swagger of Kasabian with 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 – all of which can be heard on their brand new single Up, which has already been receiving rave reviews from Radio One.
The band’s 2015 debut Class was their first statement, reaching number one in the Indie Breakers Chart the week of its release and making the Top 10 in the Scottish charts. They went on to tour with bands including Anderson Paak, Twin Atlantic and All Time Low, as well as playing at major festivals including Reading, Leeds, Download, The Great Escape, 2000 Trees, T in the Park, Belladrum, Secret Garden Party, TRNSMT and Reeperbahn.
Rapidly becoming one of the North’s leading live acts – a band Kerrang have dubbed ‘Kings of the North’ – The LaFontaines have spent the last two months touring as main support to Don Broco across the UK and Europe. Now they’re stepping back out, once more, on their own to headline a run of shows across the country this autumn.
And two lucky Living North readers can be among the first to see the band tour their brand new music by winning one of two pairs of tickets to see The LaFontaines live at The Cluny in Newcastle on 19th September.
