Over the last year, Fontaines D.C. have released four critically acclaimed AA side singles, all of which garnered considerable support both from radio, with the band A-listed at BBC Radio 6 Music for their last single ‘Too Real’.
Now, ahead of their sold-out UK headline tour in April, Dublin's Fontaines D.C. have announced their highly-anticipated debut album, Dogrel, which is slated for release on April 12 via Partisan Records. Alongside the announcement of their new album, the band have also shared a new video (directed by Molly Keane) for the album opener, 'Big'.
Speaking about the video, the band said, “we felt that great ambition was a sickness, and we got Grian's 11 year next-door neighbour to say it to you all because he's got the presence of a hundred frontmen.”
Alongside the new album and single, the band have also announced a new EU/UK headline tour starting on November 19. Fontaines D.C. have toured extensively over the last year supporting Shame on their UK tour and selling out every date their own UK headline tours in December 2018 and April 2019. Similarly, the band have just completed a 20+ run of sell out dates across Europe and Scandinavia, will support label mates Idles on their US tour in April 2019, and are also set to appear at various festivals across 2019 including End Of The Road, Truck Festival, Y Not Festival, SXSW and more.
Dogrel is due out April 12 via Partisan Records. The album will be released on limited edition transparent yellow vinyl, CD as well as all digital platforms.
