The Fratellis announce 2014 tour dates
The Fratellis released their highly anticipated new album, We Need Medicine, in October , shortly after, made a triumphant return to the road in the US with sold-out shows across the country. The Scottish bandâ€™s live show was praised as â€œa good old rock and roll show that was a damn good timeâ€ (WAWSTSF) & as sending â€œeveryoneâ€™s hands up in the air and feet off the groundâ€ (JUMP Philly). As summarized by Rukkus, â€œtheir ability to command the stage and awe their crowds is incomparable.â€
New single â€œSheâ€™s Not Gone Yet But Sheâ€™s Leavingâ€ finds the band in virgin territory, both musically & stylistically. â€œItâ€™s a song we have to dance to, and we donâ€™t dance very well,â€ frontman Jon Fratellii said. â€œI think itâ€™s a departure from where we were before.â€
Fans who werenâ€™t able to catch The Fratellisâ€™ electrifying performances in 2013 will have a handful more chances early this year, as the band has just announced that they will take to the road for a run of dates, including shows in Atlanta, Orlando, Seattle & Toronto.
