If you haven’t had the pleasure of seeing Fatherson live, you really need to treat yourself. They’re everything you want from a live band: authentic, passionate and more atmospheric than a studio record can achieve. Read all about the gig in my review at Punktastic and see where this ranks on my 2017 Gig Leaderboard.

From the review: “Fatherson take to the stage with no backdrop bearing their name and no backing track to perform to, relying solely on the raw talent running throughout the band. Playing a mixture of songs from Open Book and their debut We Are An Island, Fatherson don’t play a note out of place, particularly front man Ross Leighton, whose vocals are sublime for the entirety of the set.”
