Fontaines D.C. have confirmed another festival appearance ahead of the expected release of their second studio album this year.

The band amount to one of the biggest names on the latest Great Escape announcement, with Nasty Cherry, Ashnikko, Demob Happy, Pa Salieu, The Magic Gang and Gracie Abrams some of the others added to the event in Brighton, UK between May 13th-16th.

Fontaines’ new album is set to swiftly follow their debut Dogrel – Live4ever’s #1 of 2019. “Are they punks? Are they indie? Are they crafty sons of a city being erased before them? Yes to all,” our review reads.

“Opener Big is anti-ambition, Chatten growling, “My childhood was small/But I’m gonna be big” like that was a pair of boots waiting to be filled. Effortlessly they transition into the playground, the knockabout strut of Sha Sha Sha taking on all comers while on Roy’s Tune, Chatten is almost singing and the melody is almost pretty, the way people sometimes hear something different to the person next to them, but this time the blanket covers everyone, like a mass hypnosis of good.”
