Televised Mind - Dave Clarke Remix

    Dave Clarke says of the remix:

    "Fontaines D.C., what can I say except they exude authenticity and I am a fan, so one day in Rotterdam mid July 2020 I got an Instagram direct message from the label offering me the vinyl as they spotted I was a fan. Within a day it was established that a remix also made sense too, so in corona out the blue came something wonderful.”

    Matt says: What's with Fontaines D.C enlisting all these top drawer dancefloor stalwarts to mix their tracks?! Are they all closet pill heads?! (I think so :P). I'm not complaining; I love Fontaines D.C, I love Dave Clarke - it's not strawberries and cream - more like marmite, scrambled eggs and beans - it shouldn't work but it does!!

      On 14th July 2020, Fontaines D.C. played a selection of songs from their 'Dogrel' and 'A Hero's Death' albums live at Kilmainham Jail as part of the Other Voices Courage Series. It is an old cliche for historians to ask ëif these walls could speak, what would they tell us?

      Fortunately, the walls of Kilmainham Gaol tell us exactly how they feel. Faded with time, but still stubbornly there, are the messages of Ireland's revolutionary generations. Over one door are the quoted words of Patrick H. Pearse, poet and leader of the Easter Rising, thundering Beware of the Risen People. Perhaps the most evocative piece of graffiti in the prison reads simply A Few Men Faithful and a Deathless Dream.

      The album arrives on 180g heavyweight black LP in a gatefold jacket. Dublin historian Donal Fallon has written an essay on Kilmainham Gaol which is featured on the back cover. Includes an exclusive poster. The product does not come with a download code.

      A Hero's Death/I Don't Belong

        Barely a year after the release of their hugely acclaimed debut album 'Dogrel', which earned a Mercury Prize nomination and Album of the Year 2019 at both BBC 6Music and Rough Trade record store, Dublin’s Fontaines D.C. have returned with an intensely confident, patient, and complex follow up album. 'A Hero's Death’ was released on 31st July 2020 via Partisan Records – it arrives battered and bruised, albeit beautiful - a heady and philosophical take on the modern world, and its great uncertainty.

        The 7” features two tracks from the album – “A Hero’s Death” and “I Don’t Belong”. I

        A Hero's Death

          Barely a year after the release of their hugely acclaimed debut album 'Dogrel', which earned a Mercury Prize nomination and Album of the Year 2019 at both BBC 6Music and Rough Trade record store, Dublin’s Fontaines D.C. have returned with an intensely confident, patient, and complex follow up album.

          Martin says: Following the moody brilliance of the universally lauded ‘Dogrel’ was never going to be easy. Such a weight of expectation! Add to that a relentless schedule that goes with maintaining the momentum of success and a lifestyle that stretches minds and bodies to the limit (all too often beyond) and Fontaines D.C. could well be forgiven for buckling under the pressure. They certainly weren’t immune. Instead of blunting their creativity however, they channelled the world weariness and cynicism into their music, giving darker breadth and depth to the snarl and vigour of their debut. Grian Chatten is as poetic and articulate as ever, his wry observations irreplaceable, but here they are shot through with defiant nihilism and a wish for independence, from everything and everyone.

          They cite the Beach Boys as an influence on this album, but, while their chopping, post punk growl certainly has added harmony and changes of pace for sure, this ain't surfing weather. Where they do throw in a ballad, the gorgeous drunken drawl of “No” that closes the record, it's under leaden Dublin skies. The glorious, rolling sneer of “Televised Mind” and the tortured glam of the title track are perhaps other standouts, but then this album is full of them. All killer, certainly that.

          ‘A Hero's Death’ is absolutely and identifiably Fontaines D.C., it couldn't be anyone else, but it’s a leaner, more layered and brooding upgrade. If ‘Dogrel’ was a victory, ‘A Hero's Death’ is a reflection on the cost. It’s just magnificent.

          After a handful of singles (all of are included here), one of the most talked about new bands of the last 12 months finally release their debut album. Their visceral pop has drawn comparisons to Idles amongst others, but what really stands out and sets them apart is their roots. Straight from the off, there is no doubt where they’re from; Irish through and through. Their hometown of Dublin is a constant reference point throughout from it’s literary past to modern day life in the city. Considering the band have only actually been a band for three years, this is a remarkably assured debut that’s hard to ignore.

          Andy says: One of the year's most eagerly awaited albums did not disappoint when it arrived in April. A punk/post punk rock'n'roll band who actually sing about stuff, this record hits with the power of an early Smiths, Arctic Monkeys or even Oasis (more in attitude than anything else). It's like a poem to Dublin, getting out as much as revelling in, and singer Grian Chatten is the most authentic frontman we've heard in a long time.
