2020’s A Hero’s Death saw Fontaines D.C. land a #2 album in he UK, receive nominations at the GRAMMYs, BRITs and Ivor Novello Awards, and sell out London’s iconic Alexandra Palace. This Blood Records exclusive edition of their new album 'Skinty Fia' comes pressed to animated zoetrope picture disc, hand numbered on a first-come-first-served-basis. Used colloquially as an expletive, the title roughly translates from the Irish language into English as “the damnation of the deer”; the spelling crassly anglicised, and its meaning diluted through generations. Part bittersweet romance, part darkly political triumph - the songs ultimately form a long-distance love letter, one that laments an increasingly privatised culture in danger of going the way of the extinct Irish giant deer.
Please note that Blood Records is a pre-ordering platform and this record is due for release on 22/04/2022. All images for illustrative purposes.
