Fontaines D.C. have shared a brand new track.
Titled ‘Roy’s Tune’, the fresh cut comes alongside a new video, directed by Liam Papadachi and featuring actor Dafhyd Flynn, which you can check out below.
Guitarist Conor Curley explains: “It’s sung to Ireland – from a mindset of frustration, depression, and a loss of innocence.
“I used to work in the service industry, at a small burrito place in Dublin, and I’d walk home at night because I couldn’t afford public transportation. Grian and I didn’t have any money, so we were sharing a double-size bed in the same converted office block. One night on my way home I was walking by The George, which is the biggest gay nightclub in Dublin, and a guy was getting kicked out by the bouncers. He kept yelling at them, “I’m gonna kill you stone dead!,” and that turn of phrase stuck out to me.”
The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming debut album ‘Dogrel’, which is set to arrive on 12th April.
