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.

Now the band return with their third record in as many years: ‘Skinty Fia’, released on Partisan Records. 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.
