Following the release of their critically acclaimed debut album ‘Dogrel’ (#9 in the UK album chart) as well as a sold out US tour with labelmates IDLES, an electrifying performance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and yet another BBC 6 Music A listing for their fan-favourite single ‘Boys In The Better Land’; Fontaines D.C. have now shared a new video for album track ‘Sha Sha Sha’.
Directed by Hugh Mulhern (Boys In The Better Land, Too Real) the video takes place in the same circus company (Duffy’s) as featured on their critically-acclaimed debut album ‘Dogrel’s artwork.
Check out the video for ‘Sha Sha Sha’ – BELOW:
The band have toured extensively over the last year supporting IDLES on a sold-out 30 date US tour and Shame on their last UK tour as well as selling out every date their own EU and UK headline tours in December 2018, January 2019 and April 2019. They also have further North American dates lined up for September with Pottery before returning to tour the EU and UK across November and December later this year.
Having sold out most of their forthcoming November UK tour dates as far as 6-months in advance, the band have also begun to line-up tour dates for 2020 with two of their highest capacity shows so far announced for January already. The band will also play a vast array of festivals across spring/summer 2019 including their first Glastonbury appearance next week as well as Citadel, End Of The Road, Truck Festival, Y Not Festival, Dour Festival, Oya Festival and many more. Full list of dates below.
