Fontaines D.C. have returned with the announcement of their forthcoming new album A Hero’s Death.
To coincide with the album news, the band have released the self-titled lead singer which Grian Chatten, the lead singer of the band, described as “a list of rules for the self” before adding: “Principles for self-prescribed happiness that can often hang by a thread.”
Chatten continued: “It’s ostensibly a positive message, but with repetition comes different meanings, that’s what happens to mantras when you test them over and over. There’s this balance between sincerity and insincerity as the song goes on and you see that in the music video as well.
“The idea was influenced by a lot of the advertising I was seeing – the repetitive nature of these uplifting messages that take on a surreal and scary feel the more you see them.”
