The Fratellis just released their highly anticipated new album, We Need Medicine, through BMG. In celebration, the band embarked on a full US tour, selling out most stops along the way, and peaked at the top ten in alternative radio.
Now, the band reveal their striking, retro-flavored video (by Brendan Kennedy) for deliciously catchy We Need Medicine album cut, “She’s Not Gone Yet But She’s Leaving,” which you can watch below.
The Fratellis made a triumphant return to the road in the US this fall, making stops in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles & more. The band’s live show was praised as “a good old rock and roll show that was a damn good time” (WAWSTSF) & as sending “everyone’s hands up in the air and feet off the ground” (JUMP Philly). As summarized by Rukkus, “their ability to command the stage and awe their crowds is incomparable.”
The full length We Need Medicine album was preceded by a special digital EP, featuring the studio version of “Seven Nights Seven Days” & two live album tracks- “She’s Not Gone But She’s Leaving” and “Whisky Saga,” recorded at Glasgow Barrowlands.
The Fratellis are back with a new album We Need Medicine, slated for release on October 8 through BMG. The new single I posted a couple weeks ago, “Seven Nights Seven Days” exemplifies The Fratellis’ innate ability to write rousing anthems; fast paced, with country guitar hooks and distinctive vocals – topped off with a memorable, to-the-point catchy chorus. The video has just been released and was shot on the streets of North London and directed by Alex Williams. The slapstick dark romance mini-film stars renowned British actor and director, Nick Nevern who has starred in multiple films and TV shows, most recently he wrote, directed and starred in “The Hooligan Factory”.

The Fratellis are back! After a 5-year release hiatus, the band is thrilled to announce their third full-length album We Need Medicine, slated for release on October 8 through BMG. An 11-track record of bluesy rock anthems, it was recorded in Glasgow’s West End and produced by Jon Fratelli and Stuart McCredie, who also mixed the record.
Lead by driving percussion, “This Old Ghost Town” is an upbeat summer-perfect track, while the darker “Rock n Roll Will Break Your Heart“ tells a tale of regret and love lost. “Seven Nights Seven Days” is a rousing jam with a deliriously catchy guitar hook, pounding keys and classic Fratellis snarling vocals. Check out “Seven Nights Seven Days” now!
