The LaFontaines Share New 'Junior' Single Alpha

Tuesday, 21 May 2019 Written by Laura Johnson

The LaFontaines have shared a new single.

Alpha is the latest to be lifted from their new album, 'Junior', which is due out on June 14 through So Recordings. The day before the band will begin their UK tour in support of the new record, calling in Glasgow, Dundee, Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Birmingham, London, and Manchester, where they'll finish up the run at Night and Day on June 20.

The track fuses rap vocals with a pop-rock musical backdrop. Head below to check out the Scottish trio's performance of it as part of the One Take live sessions at Park Lane Studios in Glasgow. Frontman Kerr Okan said:

“’Alpha’ comes as result of the losses we’ve had recently in this area from young males, predominately of the ‘Alpha’ stereotype. 

"I’ve often struggled with my emotions - anything other than aggression was always seen as a weakness and something that should be locked away. ‘Alpha’ marks the point in my own journey where I realised that there was something real to be gained from embracing the spectrum of emotions - whether you’re male or not.”

The LaFontaines will also appear at festivals in Europe and the UK this summer, including Reading and Leeds in August.

Thu June 13 2019 - GLASGOW St Lukes Church
