The news of the tour follows the announcement of the band’s much anticipated second LP “A Hero’s Death”, and comes on the heels of their performance on Later… with Jools Holland earlier this month – watch their remote performance HERE.
‘A Hero’s Death’ was produced in London by Dan Carey (Black Midi, Bat For Lashes). The band announced the album alongside the title track, which features a music video starring Aidan Gillen (Game of Thrones, The Wire, Peaky Blinders). Watch HERE.
The band have also recently shared the opening track from the album. With its lonely intensity, “I Don’t Belong” stands in stark relief to the swagger that kicked off their debut album last year ("Big"). The song is also accompanied by a music video directed remotely by FDC bassist Connor Deegan III. Watch HERE.
‘Dogrel’ debuted Top 10 on the UK album charts, earning Fontaines D.C. a Mercury Prize nomination, #1 Album of the Year positions from BBC 6 Music and Rough Trade, a performance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and numerous sold out tours in the UK and abroad – including triumphantly selling out London Brixton Academy in just 1 week. The Guardian (who gave the album 5 stars) praised ‘Dogrel’ as being “brilliant, top to bottom,” The FADER called Fontaines D.C. “One of the most exciting new bands around,” and NME (who also gave ‘Dogrel’ 5 stars) called them “One of guitar music’s most essential new voices.” Watch a clip from their instantly legendary Glastonbury set HERE.
