Fontaines D.C. Announce Massive UK, Ireland Tour Dates; How To Get Tickets

They're stepping up a level...

Fontaines D.C. have confirmed plans for a huge UK and Ireland tour this Autumn.

The Irish band are back, and they’ve wiped the slate clean. New album ‘ROMANCE’ is out on August 23rd, and it contains a number of ‘firsts’ – it’s their debut for new home XL Recordings, and it’s their first with producer James Ford.

New single ‘Starburster’ is out now, alongside an ambitious Aube Perrie-directed video. A pivot towards the left-field, CLASH reviewer Richard Bowes thrilled at the results:

Tender yet bruising, structured yet scattered, ‘Starburster’ is an ambitious a song as its title, not so much a left turn as a whole new direction. Fourth album ‘Romance’ lands at the end of August. Be excited. 

Looking ahead, Fontaines D.C. will go on tour this Autumn. Opening in Wolverhampton on November 20th, dates include London’s enormous Alexandra Palace on November 22nd, and Glasgow’s OVO Hydro on December 4th.

Tickets for all headline dates go on general sale at 10am next Friday (April 26th). For first access to presale tickets, fans can pre-order the album by 3pm on April 23rd via .

Presale tickets are also available through artist presale via Ticketmaster (10am BST this Wednesday – April 24th) and Spotify presale (10am BST next Thursday April 25th).
