Handsome Tours is thrilled to present the long awaited debut of Dublin's Fontaines. D.C.
 
Fontaines D.C. met as a quintet in Dublin, influenced and driven in equal measure by the rich history of their hometown’s counter-culture, their response has been to make concise and immediately authentic indie-punk that has done anything but fall on deaf ears.

Their debut album, Dogrel (released in early 2019), spits, snarls and snaps with the very best of ‘em, but it also yearns, like the greatest Irish music must do. Their Mercury Prize-nominated debut earned the band incredibly high praise in the likes of PitchforkNPRNew York TimesRolling Stone and many more. The Guardian even went as far as calling it a ‘perfect debut’. 

The band have toured extensively over the last year, selling out their last three UK and EU headline tours, as well as a sold-out US tour.

“One of guitar music’s most essential new voices” – NME (★★★★★)
“An inspired debut album from a special band” – CLASH (9/10)
“By striving to find romance and poetry in grim times, Fontaines D.C. have made a record to fall in love with” – Q (★★★★)
“Yes, you do need to see them ASAP” – NME


All tickets originally purchased from 170 Russell will be honoured on 11 December 2020 at Croxton Bandroom.
