This item is scheduled to be released on 22nd April 2022.

Format

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.

Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
