‘Skinty Fia’ is the follow-up to the band’s 2020 BRIT and Grammy-nominated sophomore album ‘A Hero’s Death’.
Since dropping their 2019 debut ‘Dogrel’, which was one of the most highly lauded releases of the year and won them a place on the Mercury Music Prize shortlist, Fontaines D.C. have earned a reputation for being one of the most exciting young bands around.
The group features Carlos O’Connell on guitar, Conor Curley on guitar, Conor Deegan III on bass guitar, Grian Chatten on vocals and Tom Coll on drums.
