Brighton bruisers Fathoms have comprehensively toured throughout the UK and Europe, as well as undertaking successful tours in the USA, China, South Korea and Japan. The fivesome’s current and last album, ‘Counter Culture’ (reviewed here), is bursting from the seams with stocky Nu Metal-esque riffs, rap crossovers, immense choruses, and contagious grooves. Next month, the UK heavyweights bid farewell, and honour their successes in a final send-off tour for their already hearty fanbase.

The band put out this announcement on their Facebook page:

“When we started this band at the end of 2010 we never imagined that our music would make it out of Brighton, UK let alone take us all around the world. Our lives have been hugely impacted by the time we’ve spent making music and touring, and by the people we have met along the way.

It’s been an amazing experience, but we feel like now is the time to close this chapter of our lives and move on. There’s no issues behind the scenes and we’re all still best friends and will continue to be long after the band
is over. Keep your eyes peeled for our new musical projects which I’m sure will blow everybody away! We want to thank everybody who has made this possible, especially our fans who have kept us going for so many years. That’s why we’re stoked to announce that we’re doing a farewell tour, hitting all our favourite cities in the country. Come hang out with us one last time and let’s make these last shows some that we’ll never forget!”
