Fresh from supporting Mike Shinoda at The Roundhouse this weekend, The LaFontaines have announced the release of their new album, Junior, which will be out on June 14th via So Recordings. The band have also released the brand new single ‘All In’, accompanied by a new video, which is the first taste of what’s to come.
“’All In’ goes directly at the eternal conflict of the unsettled mind. Everything’s a contradiction. ‘Either coming up or going under/ I’ve wasted days wishing I was younger’,” frontman Kerr Okan says.
“All In’ is brooding, a darker tone reflects the contemporary anxieties of connecting in an age of digital facades and false truths. The sound is a progression of the band’s voice that is a sign of things to come on their upcoming record.”
As well as opening for the aforementioned Mike Shinoda last weekend, The LaFontaines will this week be heading out on a full UK tour supporting Deaf Havana. The band then have a UK headline tour in June to support the release of the new album. Tickets for the headline tour will go on sale this Friday 15th at 10am and will be available via the LaFontaine’s website.
