With 2015’s debut album Class charting in the UK Top 100 and Scottish Top 10, reaching number one in the UK Indie Breakers chart, and receiving over three million plays on Spotify, The LaFontaines are ready to top that success with the seething power of their second album Common Problem, out on 27th October 2017 via A Wolf At Your Door Records.
The album provides an intense and relatable social commentary. A brutally honest outpouring of angst, Common Problem is a raging reflection on the state of the world today.
“Common Problem is a much darker record than our debut release,” says front-man Kerr Okan. “We’re not as young and naive as we were in our early twenties. We’ve been around the world as a band, seen a lot of things and discovered our one big Common Problem… There is a lot of angst, truth and reality held within this album.”
