Filmed by Collective Dublin and captured within 2FM Radio’s studio in Montrose, Dublin – a sweeping space usually the reserve of orchestra performances - “A Night At Montrose, Dublin” will air on Monday 3rd August at 8pm BST / 9pm CEST / 3pm EDT. Fontaines D.C. will perform new album A Hero’s Death (released July 31st via Partisan Records) in its entirety for the very first time, along with selected tracks from their award-winning debut Dogrel. A live Q&A with the band will also mark the occasion. Viewing globally is easy - a link will be emailed to anyone pre-ordering the album via the store.
