Fontaines D.C. are a Dublin post-punk band made up of Grian Chatten, Carlos O’Connell, Conor Curley, Conor Deegan III and Tom Coll. In April 2019 they released their debut album Dogrel, to huge critical acclaim and have recently released their follow-up, A Hero’s Death. With eagerness, fervour and sincerity their politically-minded, dynamic, chant-worthy songs depict male vulnerability, detachment, death, rebirth, the depth of the human soul and the dark perils of modern living. They really know what they’re talking about, the least we can do is listen.
Here is their manifesto.
