Following the release of their critically acclaimed debut album, Dogrel (which charted at #9 in the UK album chart, and landed them a Mercury Prize Nomination), as well as a sold out US tour with labelmates Idles; Fontaines D.C. are making their mark. The band continue their rapid upward trajectory with the announcement of their biggest headline show to-date at London’s O2 Academy, Brixton on February 25.
The band have toured extensively over the last year selling out every date of their own EU and UK headline tours in December 2018, January 2019 and April 2019. They also have further North American headline dates lined up for September with support from label-mates Pottery, before returning to tour the EU and UK across November (sold out 6 months in advance) and December later this year.
Assembling whilst still at college in Dublin a mere three years ago, from the ruins of early nowhere bands, and having discovered a shared love of poetry and a common zeal for authentic self-expression, the evolution of Fontaines D.C. has been swift, sure and seemingly effortless. “I think there's an authenticity to what we do, and people have been starved of authenticity for too long,” Chatten said on Irish radio.
