1. ‘SUM OF ALL YOUR PARTS’ IS OUT 14TH SEPTEMBER
‘Sum Of All Your Parts’ is our third studio album which comes out this September. We are super excited to release this into the world. I think it will turn some heads with regards to the direction we have taken with our band – we’ve moved into some new and interesting places which I hope everyone will enjoy.
2. THE RECORD WAS RECORDED LIVE AND IN ORDER
When we went into the studio to track this record, we had spent so much time in the rehearsal room that it only felt natural to set up in a similar way at the studio to replicate the live atmosphere that shaped a lot of the songwriting. Choosing the track-listing in advance meant we could record the whole thing in order which allowed us to be a little more creative with blending the songs together to make the whole record feel like one cohesive piece of music.
3. THE ARTWORK FEATURES EVERY SONG
We worked closely with our graphic designer friends to create something new and memorable for this album. We felt strongly that the song titles should take pride of place on the front cover – we really want people to listen to every song on this record, so it makes sense to push every song as hard as the album title.
4. COLLABORATION RUNS THROUGHOUT THIS RECORD
We were extremely lucky to get to work with so many talented people throughout the process of making this album. Claudius Mittendorfer (Weezer, Franz Ferdinand, We Are Scientists) produced and recorded the album which was an absolute joy – we had been a big fan of all his work so to make the whole record with him was really cool. We don’t want to give too much away, but there may be some guest appearances and curveball moments on this album that people won’t expect.
5. WE’VE A UK AND EUROPE TOUR FROM 2ND OCTOBER
Touring is the lifeblood of this band. We all thrive on stage playing live – it’s just the best way to enjoy music. We are very excited to play these new songs to people and take this new record to as many places around the world as we possibly can!
Taken from the October issue of Upset. Fatherson’s album ‘Sum of All Your Parts’ is out now.
