Fontaines D.C.

Fontaines D.C. will visit the Bonus Arena, Hull this November for their upcoming tour.

General tickets will go on sale Wednesday, 30 March 2022. 

Fontaines D.C. released a second track from their highly anticipated new album Skinty Fia. “I Love You,” was met with international acclaim and joined the first single, “Jackie Down The Line,” in building widespread excitement for the band’s third album. Today, the beloved Irish band - who just took home the trophy for “Best Band In The World” at the 2022 BandLab NME Awards - released the album’s titular track “Skinty Fia,” accompanied by a music video.

Skinty Fia,’ the title of the much-anticipated third album by Fontaines D.C, translates to English as “the damnation of the deer.”

There’s definitely a spiritual thread between the three albums,” front man Grian Chatten considers with trademark gentle intensity, reflecting on the “huge personal growth" that has accompanied their travels. “We’ve now found homes, places to live, and nurtured our relationships. The songs are different because we’ve got greater emotional tools.”

Skinty Fia’ is very much a product of the people that made it, the Ireland they grew up in and the country left behind. Perhaps uncommonly in these times, it’s an album that begs to be listened to not a few tracks at a time but in full length sittings, as its rich, profound content reveals more with every listen.

There’s a bravery about it and it’s just really expansive, musically and lyrically,” considers Chatten, fondly. “The songs have more scope and are fully-realised. You might say we’re all really proud of it.

Fontaines D.C. are:

Carlos O’Connell (guitar), Conor Curley (guitar), Conor Deegan III (bass guitar), Grian Chatten (vocals) and Tom Coll (drums).
