Fontaines D.C. share their latest single ‘Too Real’ before heading on tour with Shame this week. The noisy punk band from Ireland have spiralled into publicity recently which has seen them sign a record deal with Partisan Records. They follow in the footsteps of the fellow post-punk band Idles. They will be heading on tour in America to support Idles next year. The band has also announced tour dates for the UK next year.

The single had its premiere today on one of the hottest radio shows out there. Steve Lamacq gave it a spin on his Radio 6 show in which he called it “poetic and powerful”.

Speaking of the video to accompany the single, director Hugh Mulhern, says it is made up of “low-brow visuals inspired by Buster Keaton, James Joyce, The Dubliners and Jim Henson to discuss high- brow ramblings of some stout swilling stereotypes.”

Too Real’ will be released on a double A-side single which includes ‘The Cuckoo Is A Callin’’. The single will be released on 21st Dec and can be pre-ordered here.
