Glasgow trio Fatherson today return with their first new material in 3 years. Their new single, aptly titled End Of The World, was composed over Zoom during last year’s lockdown and is, other than the title might suggest, a carefree and easy-going synth-track. Check it out below.

“If it’s my last day on earth, I’m doing whatever I want” singer Ross Leighton croons over a relationship coming to an end. He comments on the track:


End Of The World is about going through tough times and coming out the other side. Suddenly you realise that you’re actually fine. So what if someone doesn’t love you anymore? Nevermind that life isn’t as it used to be. It’s definitely a bit tongue-in-cheek. If the world really was ending, you’d want to forget all the shit that’s been thrown at you and go out and have fun.

Produced by Steph Marziano (Hayley Williams, Mumford & Sons) End Of The World sees them push further into new, more melodic territory and is accompanied by a stunning and uplifting new video, which sees the band working in an ice cream shop. Singer Ross remembers making the video:

We had such a fun time making this one that we wanted to share the joy. Will there be ice-cream at our gigs? Actually, that’s not a bad idea, as long as it’s not left to us to clean up.
