Fontaines D.C. recently appeared on the cover of NME for a Big Read interview. Speaking about the struggles they faced while on a seemingly never-ending tour behind debut album ‘Dogrel’, frontman Grian Chatten said: “A few of us were fairly heavy on the gargle, on the booze for a while. We drank almost exclusively whiskey for the whole tour. A pint or so of it before each gig, just to see you through and a bit more then after to help you sleep in the van.

“We weren’t really eating and we were burning the candle at both ends. It became a bit surreal as towns melted into each other and faces started to look a bit strange. It was a surreal environment we created for ourselves.”

The band also recently announced that they would be donating all proceeds from sales of their merchandise to the Black Lives Matter movement and other charities.
