In another popular trend that artists are finding themselves taking part in so far this year, the Irish punk band have now joined in and have moved theirs. They have taken the steps of moving theirs to start in March 2021 with the band making their way across England in May of the same year.
The tour is to be in support of the bands second album ‘A Hero’s Death’ which is still scheduled for release this year, unfortunately though, the band will not be able to play it live until next year. The tickets are scheduled to go on sale this Friday and they have given fans the opportunity to get pre-sale tickets if they pre-order the new album.

Good news though, a new single from the album will be debuted by the band tomorrow so this does go some way to make up for the missed time between the album release and the live performances. So far there have been two singles released from the album which have both been met very well across the board.
The new album is supposed to be influenced by bands such as The Beach Boys, Beach House and Broadcast. This is a change from the sound they pioneered on their debut as the aforementioned bands are not particularly known for their punk sound. But trust in the process and I am sure the band knows what they are doing.
Having seen many an artist do this so far this year, it should come as no surprise to fans of the Irish punk outfit that they have had to move their tour dates. Though they would have been expecting it, it does not mean that it will be easy for them to take at the end of the day. Getting news that you will have to wait to see your favourite band is never likely to go down well. Anyway, for the time being I am going to watch Fontaintes D.C. set at Glastonbury in replacement.
