The Dublin band are set to premiere a brand new single on Annie Mac's show.
Fontaines D.C. have announced that their highly anticipated new single is arriving tonight – with an exclusive premiere on Annie Mac's BBC Radio 1 show, 'Hottest Record In The Word', at 7pm.
Last week, they teased the imminent arrival of new music with a short clip featuring Aidan Gillen as a talk show host.

The single will be the first taste of new music from the Dublin band since the release of their debut album Dogrel last year. The album catapulted Fontaines D.C. to international acclaim – reaching No.4 on the UK albums chart; landing them a performance slot on The Jimmy Fallon Show; picking up nominations for the Mercury Prize and the Choice Music Prize; and topping Rough Trade's annual list of the top 10 albums of the year. Capping off a landmark year, Fontaines D.C. also graced the cover of the Hot Press Annual – and took home the prestigious title of Hot Press Album of the Year.
