FONTAINES D.C (Ireland)
Handsome Tours are proud to announce Dublin’s acclaimed post-punks Fontaines D.C. will make their Australian debut this April. This second Melbourne show has been added due to overwhelming demand.
Their debut, Mercury prize-nominated album, Dogrel (released in early 2019), spits, snarls and snaps with the very best of ‘em, but it also yearns, like the greatest Irish music must do. Their Mercury Prize-nominated debut earned the band incredibly high praise in the likes of Pitchfork, NPR, New York Times, Rolling Stone and many more. The Guardian even went as far as calling it a ‘perfect debut’.
The band have toured extensively over the last year, selling out their last three UK and EU headline tours, as well as supporting IDLES on their sold out US tour.
Tickets to Fontaines D.C. go on sale Thursday, 23 January at 10am local.
If their rapid upward trajectory is anything to go by, these tickets will move just as swiftly.
