    Fontaines D.C. have revealed the title track from their upcoming third album, Skinty Fia, along with an accompanying video and expanded tour dates that run all the way into next year. Check out the video and the band’s full itinerary below.

    As the namesake of the London-based, Irish-raised five-piece’s next project, “Skinty Fia” provides the perfect opportunity to elaborate on the deeper meaning behind the album’s title, which derives from an Irish phrase that translates to “the damnation of the deer.” In a statement, frontman Grian Chatten calls it the “correct expression of his feelings towards the ‘mutation’ of Irish culture abroad. The song explores the idea through the lens of a relationship doomed by paranoia, alcohol, and drugs.”

    Sonically, the new single also gives the clearest view of the band’s latest direction, with their usual dark, gloomy tones punched up by a clubby, industrial beat and their typically driving, jangled guitars subdued with an almost-dissociative restraint. The video, directed by Hugh Mulhern, matches the impersonal, outsider mentality of the song as Chatten navigates a surreal, strobed-out bacchanal without a hope of finding any connection.

    Meanwhile, the band’s massive European and North American tour will stretch through the rest of 2022. It’s now boosted with upgraded venues in Denver and Ohio along with a full Ireland and UK leg added in November. Grab your tickets to the previously announced dates here. Tickets for the new UK/European leg go on sale Wednesday, March 30th at 10:00 a.m. local time; snag yours here.

    Skinty Fia will be released on April 22nd via Partisan Records and is preceded by the singles “Jackie Down the Line,” which they recently performed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and “I Love You.” Pre-orders are ongoing.
