Monday morning has got off to a beautiful start with this week's tip - Gone Fission by the masterful Fatherson. Mixing heartfelt vocals with commanding guitars, they recall strains of Idlewild and Dashboard Confessional delighting audiences far and wide.

Starting life as Energy!, the band met at school in Kilmarnock and have already supported Feeder, Frightened Rabbit and Elliot Minor, been in session for Introducing's own Ally McCrae, plus played sold out shows at the legendary King Tut's in Glasgow.

2012 holds a debut album, supporting The Xcerts on their Scottish dates, plus appearances at multiple festivals culminating at T in the Park this summer.

The single is released on the Where The Water Meets The Land EP and can be downloaded for free on their Facebook page from the 7th May. In the meantime, wrap your ears around this certified crowd favourite.
