Label is home to Arctic Monkeys and Hot Chip
Fat White Family have a signed a record deal with Domino.
The label is home to Arctic Monkeys, Hot Chip and Franz Ferdinand.
The band released their 2013 debut, ‘Champagne Holocaust’ and 2016’s ‘Songs For Our Mothers’ via American indie label Fat Possum.
Of the signing Domino boss Laurence Bell said: “Anyone with a nose for genuine rock & roll already knows that Fat White Family are plainly the most exciting, influential and talked about band to come out of this country in the last few years. We are delighted, if slightly nervous, at the prospect of taking them to the next level.”
The label was founded in 1993 and celebrated their first Number One album in October 2005 with Franz Ferdinand’s ‘You Could Have It So Much Better’.
Earlier this year, Fat White Family guitarist Saul Adamczewski quit the band.
“I think going on the road drove him a little bit crazy” said frontman Lias Saoudi at the time. “He belongs in a room with instruments and a guy that hits record. That’s when he’s at his best.”
The singer didn’t rule out the possibility of the pair reuniting in the future, saying his departure was on good terms. “We’re not at each other’s throats or anything like that,” he said. “It was a very turbulent time and there was a huge amount of pressure on both of us and it took a bit of a toll on our relationship.
“But we’re still friends and I can envisage us working on things together in the future. I’m not ruling that one out and it’s no kind of diabolical split. It’s just time, pressure and fulfilling your obligations, and there’s too many of those.”
Earlier this year, Lady Gaga also admitted she was a fan of the band.
The US pop star shared a series of videos and pictures on her Instagram from a gig the band played in New York.
