Irish Post-Punk Band's Sophomore Album On Vinyl LP!

Rolling Stone's The 50 Best Albums of 2020 - Rated 33/50!
Paste's The 50 Best Albums of 2020 - Rated 40/50!

2021 Grammy Award Nominee:
• Best Rock Album: A Hero's Death

Barely a year after the release of their acclaimed debut album Dogrel (which charted Top 10 in the UK, earned a Mercury Prize nomination, Fallon performance, and #1 Album of the Year positions for BBC 6Music and Rough Trade), Fontaines D.C. have returned with an intensely confident, patient, and complex sophomore album. A Hero's Death arrives battered and bruised, albeit beautiful - a heady and philosophical take on the modern world, and its great uncertainty.

In a world full of bands straining to be good enough, Fontaines D.C. aim for the skies - these Dublin punk lads flat-out want to be your favorite band, nothing less. Result: The year's most full-throated, stouthearted, old-school-guitar rabble-rousing. Irish to the core (the 'D.C.' stands for 'Dublin City'), they rush through their second album, A Hero's Death, with a Clash-y spirit, a slashing Gang of Four guitar attack, and Pogues-worthy humor. When Grian Chatten snarls 'I Was Not Born,' he's throwing down the gauntlet to challenge all other bands on both sides of the Atlantic.
-Rolling Stone, The 50 Best Albums of 2020, Rated 33/50
Fontaines D.C. sound far gloomier, both sonically and lyrically, but also more mature and pointed. Their gothic tendencies are heightened, and new reference points are introduced: Pet Sounds-era Beach Boys, Scott Walker and Leonard Cohen.
-Paste Magazine, The 50 Best Albums of 2020, Rated 40/50
