The Fratellis continue reformation with new album and spring 2013 UK tour
Posted: 4th December 2012
Scottish 'Chelsea Dagger' outfit to perform handful of April shows, tickets on sale Thursday 6th December
The Fratelli's sparky debut album 'Costello Music' achieved over 1 million sales and spent nearly two years in the Top 100 Album Chart, losing out on a #1 slot by being up against the latest Justin Timberlake vehicle and Scissor Sisters' second album 'Ta-Dah'. The catchy singles 'Chelsea Dagger', 'Whistle for the Choir' and 'Henrietta' all earned The Fratellis festival slots and sell-out shows.
Tellingly, the follow-up 'Here We Stand' didn't repeat the debut's success and the band went into hibernation in 2009. Bassist Barry snuck off to be in The Twang and Jon continued as a soloist and occasional member of Codeine Velvet Club.
After a few years spent on various projects, including Jon's solo efforts, The Fratellis have finally reformed. Permanently. Earlier in 2012, they debuted (again) at a charity gig in Stirling, the Loopallu festival and for a short UK tour in the autumn.
2013 heralds the completion of their third album and a UK tour, starting in Camden on 11th April and continuing on to Birmingham, Manchester, Bristol etc until winding up on home-soil in Glasgow on the 19th. Tickets go on sale from 9am on Thursday 6th December with prices starting at £18, rising to £20 for London and Glasgow.
