Fontaines D.C.'s Skinty Fia is one of the most anticipated albums of the spring (pre-order on limited edition, transparent red vinyl), and after having chewed on "Jackie Down the Line" for a month or so, we now have a second single. Using layered, shimmering guitars, the band lay down a dark mood on "I Love You" before the song builds to a full-on roar.

Frontman Grian Chatten says it's "the first overtly political song we've written," adding, “It's standing in the center of our beloved home country as a multitude of things are brought to tragic ends in an apocalyptic state of affairs. That's how it feels to me, and what I felt when I wrote it.”

You can watch the video, directed by Sam Taylor and featuring an intense, magnetic performance by Chatten, below.

Skinty Fia is due out April 22 via Partisan and you can preorder it now on translucent red vinyl, limited to 1500 copies and available exclusively in our shop.

Fontaines D.C. will be on tour this spring with Just Mustard and just added a second NYC show at Brooklyn Steel on April 27 (Their 4/26 Brooklyn Steel show is sold out). All dates are listed below.
