Fontaines D.C. confirmed a while ago that they had finished recording their second album, the follow up to last year's critically acclaimed debut 'Dogrel' - and it seems we'll be getting the first track of it not too far away!



They've been saying that the new album has been inspired by The Beach Boys, so I can't wait to hear where those influences come in.

I imagine this will be big commercially. Radio 1 late to the game with their debut singles only removing 'Liberty Bell' the other week so I imagine this will get a lot of rotation on daytime playlists.

Randomly, 'I Don't Belong' released yesterday, but they've said nothing about it on social media at all! It's another good one though.

Whilst I really like A Hero's Death I'm not sure it's as good as almost all of Dogrel, which is pretty much perfect. Interested to hear the new one.

I've just got round to seeing it and very good it was too. I've loved most of what I've heard from the so far (which is quite a lot). A Hero's Death is very reminiscent of 90s Irish band A House.

'I Don't Belong' is the first song from them that's really grabbed my attention, lovely stuff.

I've seen them twice and they're great so will definitely hope to get a ticket for this. Leicester on a Monday I guess it has to be.

This album is going to be really special I think, an early review from Q gives it 5 stars!

Didn't immediately click with 'Televised Mind' on first listen the other week but I have revisited it and glad that I have as it's grown on me a lot, I think I'm actually liking it even more than 'I Don't Belong' now.

I don't know if this is even the vibe they're going for but I find these two songs kind of weirdly relaxing in their simplicity? I relistened to 'A Hero's Death' as well and I'm still not as into that one and I think it might be because there's a little too much going on in it - it's like Fontaines D.C. are at their best for me when they put the least amount of effort into their songs laugh.gif maybe I am way off but regardless they have successfully scratched an itch that I'm not getting from any other guitar music recently that I can think of.
