The LaFontaines never went away, they’ve just had a short time out…

Fifteen years since their inception in Motherwell Scotland, Kerr Okan, Jamie Keenan and Darren McCaughey have long held a unique space within the UK music scene with The LaFontaines sound as instantly recognisable as singer Kerr’s vocals.


Of their new upcoming album Business As Usual set for release this summer, frontman Kerr Okan says “To be a band at this point, 15 years deep, on the verge of releasing our 4th studio album says it all really. To still be going hard at it shows the love we have for the music. To have a fanbase that continues to grow proves we’re not f%@kin’ mental, and to have a live show that is genuinely one of the best in Britain, is the reason we keep selling out shows with no industry backing. This record is far from a farewell; it’s a resolute declaration that it’s ‘Business As Usual”

The LaFontaines third studio album Junior was released via SO Recordings in June 2019 to critical acclaim. The album charted at number 33 in the UK Albums Chart, giving the band their first top 40 record. The bands personality, charm and charisma shines through their output, which coupled with their already unrivalled unique offering has earned them a dedicated, loyal fanbase – who identify with the band through more than just the music.

Across their career, The LaFontaines have performed across the globe with festival highlights including TRNSMT in Scotland, VERY TV Festival in Bangkok, the Radio 1 Dance Tent at Reading & Leeds Festival in England and the NH7 Weekender in India. They have toured everywhere from New York to Paris with the likes of Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda, Anderson .Paak, Don Broco, Deaf Havana and Example to name a few.

Their live shows are their superpower – a guaranteed good time which sees the band connect with their audience on a level that most live acts never achieve. The LaFontaines will head to 5 intimate venues for live shows and album signings, to support the release of their upcoming album, Business As Usual, which is out on 14th June via SO Recordings. They will kick off in their hometown of Glasgow at HMV on 15th June, and then make their way around Dundee, Aberdeen and a sold out Edinburgh, before wrapping things up at an also sold out Kingston’s Banquet Records on 19th June. This will give fans a very special opportunity to see the band up close and personal, and performing the album tracks for the first time in tiny venues and record stores.
