UK rock/rap quartet The LaFontaines has unveiled their video for the anti-conformist single “Armour.” The video features their sold-out headline show at Glasgow’s Barrowlands where you get to witness the Mad Crowd Disease that these four lads can cause:

“‘Armour’ was the last song we recorded for Common Problem. Two days before the record went to the mastering stage we were sitting with our originally planned 11-track album, but we just had a sense that something was missing. At this point I still felt like I had something left to say on the record. With ‘Explosion,’ and ‘Asleep’ I had opened and ended a conversation, but I hadn’t yet fully explained myself – ‘Armour’ was the punch line. ‘Lost dreamers who bowed out with no merit/when life hits hard like a right hook they forget it.’ Our producer Joe Cross (The Courteeners) added the vocal chops in the verse and it gave me something new to bounce off. The next day I drove down to Manchester to record the lead vocal.” explained vocalist Kerr Okan.

The track is from LaFontaines new record Common Problem, which was released back in October 27, 2017. The LaFontaines will be supporting Don Broco on their spring/summer dates, so check them out:
