The Fratellis released their highly anticipated new album, We Need Medicine, in October on BMG and, shortly after, made a triumphant return to the road in the US with sold-out shows across the country. The Scottish band’s live show was praised as “a good old rock and roll show that was a damn good time” (WAWSTSF) & as sending “everyone’s hands up in the air and feet off the ground” (JUMP Philly). As summarized by Rukkus, “their ability to command the stage and awe their crowds is incomparable.”
” …an urgent and exhilarating shot of rock & roll…” – Rolling Stone
“…energizing and rowdy…” – Paste Magazine
“…disheveled hair, a red electric guitar and lungs full of energy…” – American Songwriter
“…their ability to create anthem-like tracks separates them from their peers…” – MTV Hive
New single “She’s Not Gone Yet But She’s Leaving” (above) finds the band in virgin territory, both musically & stylistically. “It’s a song we have to dance to, and we don’t dance very well,” frontman Jon Fratelli said. “I think it’s a departure from where we were before.”
Fans who weren’t able to catch The Fratellis’ electrifying performances in 2013 will have a handful more chances early this year, as the band has just announced that they will take to the road for a run of dates, including shows in Atlanta, Orlando, Seattle & Toronto.
Stay tuned for more news from The Fratellis coming soon!
