Fontaines D.C. met as a quintet in Dublin, influenced and driven in equal measure by the rich history of their hometown’s counter-culture, their response has been to make concise and immediately authentic indie-punk that has done anything but fall on deaf ears.
Their debut album, Dogrel (released in early 2019), spits, snarls and snaps with the very best of ‘em, but it also yearns, like the greatest Irish music must do. Their Mercury Prize-nominated debut earned the band incredibly high praise in the likes of Pitchfork, NPR, New York Times, Rolling Stone and many more. The Guardian even went as far as calling it a ‘perfect debut’.
The band have toured extensively over the last year, selling out their last three UK and EU headline tours, as well as a sold-out US tour.
Tickets on sale now. If their rapid upward trajectory is anything to go by, these tickets will move just as swiftly.
“One of guitar music’s most essential new voices” – NME (★★★★★)

“By striving to find romance and poetry in grim times, Fontaines D.C. have made a record to fall in love with” – Q (★★★★)
“Yes, you do need to see them ASAP” – NME
