Is it 2006 again?

No. It’s not, actually. It’s 2020 and The Fratellis are back with a new, massive album and some tasty tour dates for you. Following a 2018 tour with Madness, the 3 boys got back in the studio for their latest creation: Half Drunk Under a Full Moon.

Lead vocalist Jon had stated that the band intended to take 2019 as a hiatus after a busy year. However, after a few cryptic Instagram posts earlier this year, they have announced their sixth studio album that will be released 8th May 2020, alongside a tour in which Manchester Academy is the first stop.

Fun fact: The Fratellis name is taken from the criminal family name from The Goonies. Viva la Mama Fratelli (the best fictional character to date).
