Fontaines DC have announced their anticipated third album which is titled Skinty Fia and will be out April 22 via Partisan. (Pre-order our exclusive translucent red vinyl edition.) For it, they once again worked with producer Dan Carey. Used colloquially as an expletive, album’s title is an Irish phrase that translates to “the damnation of the deer,” whose meaning has been Anglicized and diluted over the years. The extinct Irish giant deer represents Ireland’s identity for the band, and what it means to be Irish in 2022, even as they move away from home, is a theme explored on the album.

The first single from Skinty Fia is the driving “Jackie Down the Line,” that comes with a colorful video directed by Hugh Mulhern. Watch that, and check out the tracklist, below. Fontaines DC will also be on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday, January 12 where they will perform another new song off the album.

We’re excited to partner with the band on an exclusive variant of Skinny Fia pressed on 140g translucent red vinyl and limited to 1500 copies worldwide. Pre-order yours HERE.

The band have also announced a North American tour for this spring which is with fellow Irish group (and Partisan labelmates) Just Mustard. The tour includes NYC’s Brooklyn Steel on April 26, Asbury Park’s Wonder Bar on April 23 and Los Angeles’ Regent Theatre on May 18.

Tickets for the whole tour go on sale Friday, January 15 at 10 AM local time and all dates are listed below
