Fontaines D.C. Announce 2021 European Tour Dates 

4th July 2020 | Category: Concerts

Fontaines D.C. have recently announced UK tour in support of their upcoming second album ‘A Hero’s Death’. The new album comes out on July 31, 2020. 

Now the band has announced an extensive run of European tour dates for next year.

Their European run will begin in early March 2021 and finish a month later, before they head out across the UK in May.

They have also shared another new track from their second album on June 30, ‘Televised Mind’. It follows the album’s title track, which was released upon its announcement last month, and recent second single ‘I Don’t Belong’. 

Grian Chatten, frontman of Fontaines D.C. said in a press release:

“This song is about the echo chamber, and how personality gets stripped away by surrounding approval. People’s opinions get reinforced by constant agreement, and we’re robbed of our ability to feel wrong. We’re never really given the education of our own fallibility. People feign these great beliefs in order to appear trendy, as opposed to independently arriving at their own thoughts.

We were listening to a lot of the Prodigy and the Brian Jonestown Massacre, specifically their song “Open Heart Surgery.” I was interested in extrapolating those types of chord progressions and capturing this droning, hypnotic feel. That last line repeated over and over [“What ya call it”] is a buffer expression that people used here in Dublin. It’s sort of like “umm” or “well…”—it’s what people say when they’re distracted.”

The band also recently announced that they would be donating all proceeds from sales of their merchandise to the Black Lives Matter movement and other charities.

Once the tickets for Fontaines D.C. upcoming shows go on sale, you’ll be able to purchase them here.
