Fontaines D.C. have announced a surprise intimate gig in New York set to take place next week.

The Dublin band – comprised of Grian Chatten, Tom Coll, Conor Curley, Conor Deegan III  and Carlos O’Connell – took to their official social media to announce their one-night-only gig on May 8 at Brooklyn’s Warsaw venue. Tickets for the gig are sold out but fans can check to see if any more are released or resold here.

Fontaines D.C. will be playing to a crowd of 1000 at the legendary ballroom venue. It will also mark the first show of their new era leading into their fourth studio album ‘Romance‘ which is due for release on August 23 via XL Recordings (pre-order/pre-save here).

The Brooklyn gig comes ahead of their newly announced ‘ROMANCE’ European, UK and Ireland tour.

The European leg is due to kick on November 1 in at Sagres Campo Pequeno in Lisbon, followed by dates in Madrid, Berlin, Paris and more, before they wrapped up at AFAS Live in Amsterdam on November 16.

From there, the band will continue on to their remaining dates, which includes two nights at London’s Alexandra Palace.

The band recently released ‘Starburster‘, the lead single of ‘Romance’. In a glowing five-star review of the track, NME called it the Dubliners’ “most experimental work yet” adding that Fontaines D.C. had “taken a perfect left turn” to usher in their next chapter.

It continued: “Leaning on the Massive Attack trip-hop noir vibes first hinted at on [2022 album] ‘Skinty Fia’’s title track, ‘Starburster’ is a pensive art-rock beast that fuses elements of electronica and hip-hop more akin to their fellow striking countrymen (and recent collaboratorsKNEECAP.”

In other news, the band are also scheduled to make appearances at GlastonburyReading & Leeds, Pukkelpop and Sziget among other festivals across the season.

Last week, footage resurfaced of a pre-fame Fontaines D.C. performing a cover of The Strokes‘ ‘Reptilia’ in 2014.
