Today, Fontaines D.C. are announcing a very special album release show in support of their highly anticipated new offering A Hero’s Death. Filmed by Collective Dublin and captured within 2FM Radio’s studio in Montrose, Dublin – a sweeping space usually the reserve of orchestra performances – “A Night At Montrose, Dublin” will air on Monday 3rd August at 8 pm BST / 9 pm CEST / 3 pm EDT.
Fontaines D.C. will perform new album A Hero’s Death (released July 31st via Partisan Records) in its entirety for the very first time, along with selected tracks from their award-winning debut Dogrel. A live Q&A with the band will also mark the occasion. Viewing globally is easy – a link will be emailed to anyone pre-ordering the album via the store. Fans will receive their link 1 hour before the performance begins (7 pm BST). The deadline to get involved is 9 pm BST on 2nd August. Get access to the performance by pre-ordering the album HERE.
