LATEST UPDATE: NEW DATE
The past year in music surely belonged to the Grammy nominated Fontaines D. C. and their Prague show at Roxy was highly anticipated. Due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak the upcoming tour has been postponed, however we are glad to confirm a new date: 27th March 2022. “The five of us want to say to you as a fan, that we hope you’re keeping safe and sane through all of this.” All tickets already purchased are valid for the new date. This will be a show worth waiting for, however if the new date does not suit you, please contact your ticket provider by 9th April 2021.
The current Irish guitar scene is in mint condition, as evidenced by the success of postpunk influenced Fontaines D.C.. Their 2019 debut took on the disillusionment of the young generation. Barely a year since Dogrel earned them a spot as one of the most acclaimed new bands of 2019, Dublin’s Fontaines D. C. returned with A Hero’s Death on 31st July. Arriving battered and bruised – albeit beautiful – the album is anything but a re-hash of the swaggering energy from their first record.
