Not a lot of Irish bands have been as prolific in their early career as Fontaines D.C. Their first album 'Dogrel' was released in 2019, followed shortly by Grammy-nominated 'A Hero's Death' in 2020.
Now, their new record, 'Skinty Fia' is on the way, looking to follow on from the acclaim of their first two.
'Skinty Fia', produced by Dan Carey, will be released on April 22. The post-punk outfit also announced new tour dates across North America in the spring.
As well as the album announcement, the band also released its first single 'Jackie Down the Line', accompanied by a music video directed by Hugh Mulhern, who has previously worked with Inhaler, Kojaque and For Those I Love. Mulhern also directed Fontaines’ video for 'A Hero's Death'.
The band will also be performing the single live on 'The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon' tonight, January 12.
Fontaines D.C. consists of Grian Chatten (vocals), Carlos O'Connell (guitar), Conor Curley (guitar), Conor Deegan III (bass), and Tom Coll (drums). The band members hail from all around the country but met in BIMM in Dublin, forming in 2017.
The band are currently gearing up for an extensive year of touring, starting in Europe in February. They are then following that up with dates across the U.S in spring, before heading back to Europe for the rest of the summer.
