Scottish three-piece alternative rock outfit, Fat Goth, are returning with their first album since 2014 and their fourth in total, titled Enorme! and scheduled to be out on May 5th 2017 via Hefty Dafty Records.
Fraser Stewart, the trio's vocalist and guitarist, thinks of the new album as the band's angriest effort yet and explains: "We live in a world where sociopolitical discourse, injustice and prejudices are rife and appear to increase on a daily basis, resulting in such dire circumstances becoming ‘the norm’ and subsequent headlines being met with continual indifference and fatigue. Thanks to social media, we all have a platform where we can spout our outrage and condemn the things we see as wrong, but when everyone is doing the exact same and simply preaching to their respective choirs, there is no debate, no engagement and ultimately no resolve. We fight amongst ourselves allowing hatred and ignorance to cloud our judgement while those responsible continue to fly high and way out of reach of significant scrutiny and accountability. Thematically this is what Enorme! attempts to illustrate."
