Having just wrapped their first North American tour since 2019 and a short run of intimate sold-out record store shows in the UK, Fontaines D.C. have shared a video for their latest single Roman Holiday. Lifted from their new album ‘Skinty Fia,’ which debuted at #1 on both the UK and Irish Official Album Charts, the track’s 70s heist-inspired video is “the result of attempting to challenge the monarchy and watching too much of The Rockford Files,” according to director Sam Taylor. It captures the band on a road trip with a bear in tow through a retro lens. Watch the video for Roman Holiday via YouTube below.

The band, who made their NPR Tiny Desk Concert debut during their recent US run of shows, as well as a three song performance on CBS This Morning’s Saturday Sessions and their first in-studio TV performance – at NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers – since the start of the pandemic, have announced a new slew of US dates beginning this September with Primavera Festival in Los Angeles. For this second run of ‘Skinty Fia’ shows, the Grammy-nominated band will make stops in Atlanta, Nashville, Boston + more, before heading onto their highly anticipated UK dates in November.

The new dates will follow an extensive string of EU and UK festival appearances with the band already having played at BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend last month, where they also performed their latest single Roman Holiday to packed-out crowds – Watch here.
