Fontaines D.C. have shared the title track of their anticipated third album, Skinty Fia (pre-order on exclusive translucent red vinyl). "Skinty Fia" is an Irish phrase that means "the damnation of the deer" and is used to display disappointment or annoyance. In this case, frontman Grian Chatten uses it to express his feelings of towards the "mutation' of Irish culture abroad -- the albums' artwork features a deer pulled out of its natural habitat and placed in a house.

Chatten told Rolling Stone the song itself is about "a doomed, paranoid relationship with influences of alcohol, drugs, and paranoia. … I'm sure in some way, that’s how I feel being here, that there’s this doom ringing in my head and I don’t know why." You get that same feeling listening to the magnetic, dark, and danceable song which features a hypnotic, fluid vocal from Chatten. Likewise, the video, directed by Hugh Mulhern, is set in a surreal club that feels somewhere between Eyes Wide Shut, Midsommar and The Wicker Man. Watch that below.

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

The band will also be on tour this spring with Just Mustard and play two nights at NYC's Brooklyn Steel, on April 26 (sold out) and April 27 (tickets). Updated tour dates are listed below.
