The event organisers have been in touch to let us know that Fontaines D.C. on Tuesday 14 December 2021 at 7:30pm has been rescheduled. The event will now be taking place on Wednesday 8 February 2023 at 7:30pm at Forum Melbourne.
A message from Fontaines D.C.:
“We’re mad to come to Australia. To explore a place none of us have ever been to, and that so many of our friends and family have moved to. Unfortunately, we won’t be able to do it this year. We’ve been trying for a couple of years now, but restrictions keep stopping us. We’re hoping to be able to come over in February of 2023 now. Please know that we really want to come and play. Love to the upsidedowners - Fontaines D.C. x”
Fontaines D.C. met as a quintet in Dublin, influenced and driven in equal measure by the rich history of their hometown’s counter-culture, their response has been to make concise and immediately authentic indie-punk that has done anything but fall on deaf ears.
Their debut album, Dogrel (released in early 2019), spits, snarls and snaps with the very best of ‘em, but it also yearns, like the greatest Irish music must do. Their Mercury Prize-nominated debut earned the band incredibly high praise in the likes of Pitchfork, NPR, New York Times, Rolling Stone and many more. The Guardian even went as far as calling it a ‘perfect debut’. The band have toured extensively over the last year, selling out their last three UK and EU headline tours, as well as a sold-out US tour.
“One of guitar music’s most essential new voices” – NME (★★★★★)
“An inspired debut album from a special band” – CLASH (9/10)
“By striving to find romance and poetry in grim times, Fontaines D.C. have made a record to fall in love with” – Q (★★★★)
“Yes, you do need to see them ASAP” – NME
