Fountains DC Preview North American Tour with Stop on ‘Corden’

Fontaines DC brings Irish post-punk styles to ‘Corden’ to play ‘Roman Holiday’; North American tour soon

Irish post-punk/indie band DC fountains is set to embark on a major North American headlining tour, with the band’s return to the United States in support of last May’s Lean fia.

The third album released by the Dublin-based band, Lean fia came on the heels of the 2020s The death of a herowhich earned the band a Grammy nomination for Best Rock Album.

There’s a consistent intensity to the music of Fontaines DC, courtesy of singer Grian Chatten and his lyricism, rooted in working-class angst and a call for social conscience. Musically, Fontaines DC bathes most songs in a cascade of ethereal guitars and melodies, blending it all into a particularly compelling sound that shines on songs such as “Roman Holiday,” which the band performed on.
