The performance follows the release of their mysterious new video.
The Irish band previously played on the hugely popular American late-night talk show in 2019 and 2021.
Taking to social media last night, Fontaines D.C. shared the news alongside some cryptic images – including lead singer Grian Chatten wearing a set of antlers and playing the accordion.
As we previously reported, the band are premiering a mysterious new video this evening at 6pm. All that's currently known about the video is the title card – and a new matching profile image on Instagram – which reads 'Skinty Fia'.
'Skinty' also happens to be the name of Fontaines D.C.'s drummer Tom Coll's newly launched label, Skinty Records, through which he released a compilation of traditional Irish music, Goitse A Thaisce, last year. The logo for Skinty Records features a deer – or a 'fia' in Irish. The band have further hinted towards the deer connection through more images of Grian wearing antlers, as well as an image of a fawn, on Instagram.
