Bittersweet, provoking and absolutely massive third LP from the Dublin post-punks.

Description

2020’s A Hero’s Death saw Fontaines D.C. land a #2 album in the UK, receive nominations at the GRAMMYs, BRITs and Ivor Novello Awards, and sell out London’s iconic Alexandra Palace. 

+ Indie LPs are pressed on yellow OR red vinyl.

+ Deluxe is 2 x black heavyweight vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with alternative artwork and printed inner sleeves. Includes 20-page lyric booklet.

Now the band return with their third record in as many years: Skinty Fia. Used colloquially as an expletive, the title roughly translates from the Irish language into English as “the damnation of the deer”; the spelling crassly anglicized, and its meaning diluted through generations. Part bittersweet romance, part darkly political triumph - the songs ultimately form a long-distance love letter, one that laments an increasingly privatized culture in danger of going the way of the extinct Irish giant deer.

"If their debut album Dogrel was a love letter written in and to Dublin, and follow-up A Hero’s Death a dissociated masterpiece, written on the road as the band navigated being away from their home turf, then Skinty Fia is a self-assured amalgamation of the two. Channelling their achievements so far and combining them with a desire for expansion, Skinty Fia also doesn’t forget where it came from."
