Fontaines D.C. have shared a new single and video, 'Roy's Tune'

Fontaines D.C. have released a new single.

'Roy's Tune' is another socially charged track taken from the groups upcoming debut 'Dogrel', out April 12th on Partisan Records. Alongside the track they also released an accompanying video directed by Liam Papadachi and features award-winning actor Dafhyd Flynn.

Talking about the song, guitarist Conor Curley said: “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.”
