Fontaines D.C. have announced new UK tour dates for May 2021. The new dates will also include the band’s biggest headline UK show to-date at London’s Alexandra Palace.
Tickets will go on sale tomorrow.
The news of the tour follows the announcement of the band’s much anticipated second LP A Hero’s Death, and comes on the heels of their performance on Later… with Jools Holland earlier this month – watch their remote performance HERE.
A Hero’s Death was produced in London by Dan Carey (Black Midi, Bat For Lashes). The band announced the album alongside the title track, which features a music video starring Aidan Gillen (Game of Thrones, The Wire, Peaky Blinders).
The band have also recently shared the opening track from the album. With its lonely intensity, I Don’t Belong stands in stark relief to the swagger that kicked off their debut album last year (Big). The song is also accompanied by a music video directed remotely by FDC bassist Connor Deegan III.
The band perform at the 02 Academy in Leeds on May 11th 2021, and the 02 Academy in Sheffield on May 18th 2021.
