31 July 2020

Band: FONTAINES D.C. (Dublin, Ireland)
Who: Irish post punk indie gunslingers gearing
up for world domination.
Album: A HERO’S DEATH – the band’s second LP
Released: 31 July 2020

Key phrase: “Sometimes even to live is an act of courage.”Lucius Annaeus SenecaLife

NME‘s verdict: “Usually, when a band follows up their lauded, hype-building
debut album in lightning-fast time, they do so to capitalise on the buzz and double
down on any early promise. Fontaines D.C.‘s second album, the tense, often morose
‘A Hero’s Death’, feels like the antithesis of this approach… It finds the band investigating
their meteoric rise and the punishing, never-ending tour that followed, sifting through
the fragmented pieces that remain.’ 
Full review here. Score: 4/5
