The last year has seen Fontaines D.C. release three hotly received double A-side singles, all of which were named as singles of the week by Rough Trade, and garnered early support from the likes of Steve Lamacq and others on BBC 6 Music, as well as earning plaudits from DIY, Stereogum, KEXP, Fred Perry Subculture, London in Stereo, Rolling Stone, So Young and every major Irish publication. Similarly, the band have played a vast amount of shows across Europe, Ireland and the UK earning a reputation for their brooding and trenchant live performances, supporting the likes of IDLES, Metz, The Horrors, Girl Band and The Lemon Twigs, as well as playing festival slots at Primavera Pro, The Great Escape, Dot to Dot, Electric Picnic, Nox Orae, Cabaret Vert, Off Festival,Poland, Hard Working Class Heroes, London Calling, Dutch Design Week and Other Voices. Fontaines DC will also go out as support to SHAME on their full UK Tour in November 2018 as well as their own UK Run of Sold out Shows.
