The LaFontaines have released their new single Alpha ahead of a tour promoting new album Junior which stops of at Manchester’s Night and Day.
Junior will be released on 14 June, with The LaFontaines performing a Manchester gig less than a week later.
New single Alpha is accompanied by a ‘one take’ video recorded at Park Lane Studios.
Speaking about the track, frontman Kerr Okan commented, “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 head out on a seven date UK tour in support of new album Junior in June. The album is the band’s third album and follows 2017’s Common Problem and 2015 debut Class.
The LaFontaines are also set to perform at Reading & Leeds festival this year.
