The band play the Garage in London tonight (17th April), and have added even more dates in the UK for 2020.
Fontaines will play Newcastle and Nottingham next January. The dates will follow an extensive UK tour in November, on which shows have already began to sell out. They’ve also upgraded the Liverpool and Birmingham shows of their November run.
‘Dogrel’ currently sits in the top five of the UK album charts.
The band are set to follow their UK tour with a North American run in support of Partisan labelmates IDLES.
