Fontaines D.C. are set to play an exclusive virtual release show for their new album – and you’re invited!

The live-streamed event is to celebrate the release of the Irish post-punks’ hotly anticipated second album A Hero’s Death, which is due out on Friday 31 July on Partisan Records.

The show will see the album performed in its entirety for the first time, along with selected tracks from their much-loved, award-winning debut Dogrel, which was our favourite album of 2019.

The event – from a venue which is usually the reserve of orchestra performances – will also feature a live Q&A session.
