Their sophomore release will arrive on 31st July.
Irish band Fontaines D.C. have premiered the title track from their forthcoming album A Hero’s Death, via Annie Mac’s Radio One show tonight.
This first sample from the album is filled with uplifting lyricism, with the chorus refrain “Life ain’t always empty.”
“It’s ostensibly a positive message,” Singer Grian Chatten says, referring to the album as a whole. “But with repetition comes different meanings, that’s what happens to mantras when you test them over and over.”
Fontaines’ Mercury Prize-nominated debut LP Dogrel was released to critical acclaim just one year ago, in April 2019.
A Hero’s Death will be released 31st July 2020 via Partisan.
