Fontaines D.C. become the latest band to collaborate with MelodyVR.
Virtual reality is about as good as it’s going to get for the rest of 2020 as far as live music goes, and thus Fontaines D.C. have added their name to the list of artists who have teamed up with MelodyVR for a live-streamed gig.
This one is to take the Dubliners back to London and the O2 Brixton Academy on November 23rd. Airing from 8.30pm UK time, tickets are on sale now over at Live Nation.
It’s this kind of thing which Fontaines have been restricted to since the release of their second album A Hero’s Death earlier this year; ‘what happens when people start to talk to each other again, a jigsaw of a human being put back together’, according to Live4ever:
“Some of the material pre-dates the release of Dogrel – the bass-surging Televised Mind, I Was Not Born’s raging punk – but in tone neither are a conscious attempt to link past to present.”
“Any of that hubris is scraped away, replaced with a tenderness that comes from honesty, candid truth which makes Oh Such A Spring, Sunny and No as good a places to begin a relationship with this ‘new’ group of people as Big or Boys From The Better Land were. It’s an oddly baptismal kind of change.”
