The Fratellis Biography

The Fratellis formed in their native Glasgow, SCOTLAND, in early 2005 and inspired by The Ramones, decided to anoint each member with the same last name as the band; Fratelli is the actual surname of bassist Barry, the Pop-Rock act also features vocalist + guitarist Jon Fratelli and drummer Mince Fratelli.

In mid-2006 they cracked the U.K. Top 20 with first single "Henrietta" before catapulting into the top 5 with "Chelsea Dagger". Their debut album, "Costello Music", opened at #2 on the British Sales chart upon its September 2006 release, generating yet another top 10 hit with "Whistle For The Choir". The fact that the Glaswegian trio had their song "Flathead" featured in the iPod ads was a testament to the band's quality; this track peaked at #33 on the U.S. Hot Modern Rock chart and helped lift the group's debut album to #48 on The Billboard 200.

"Here We Stand" was the sophomore album by The Fratellis. Continuing where "Costello Music" left off, the record is packed with anthemic sing-a-long indie but with a slight Rock edge; the 12-song set, which included the U.K top 40 single "Mistress Mabel", was released in June 2008 going straight into the top 5 in Britain but failed to match its predecessor's sales as it reached #80 on the U.S. Top 200 Albums chart.

Latest News:

After a five-years break and working on various other project, the Scottish trio returned to the fray; their third album, "We Need Medicine", is scheduled to be released on October 7, 2013 and the first single, "Seven Nights Seven Days", is a rousing anthem with a classic Fratellis chorus backed by country guitars.
