    A Hero's Death is the second studio album by Irish post-punk band Fontaines D.C.. The album was released on 31 July 2020 through Partisan Records, less than 18 months after the release of their debut album Dogrel. Grian Chatten: “To me the idea of a hero’s life is someone who pursues their morals and ideas right until the end.” Fontaines D.C. have spoken out for the first time on their surprise Grammy nod, likening the landmark moment to receiving “a phone call from space”. The Dublin post-punk heroes secured a Best Rock Album nomination for ‘A Hero’s Death‘ – which received a four-star review from NME earlier this year — during the nominations announcement for the 2021 Grammys earlier this week (November 24) . While they face tough competition from The Strokes, Michael Kiwanuka, Sturgill Simpson and Grace Potter, Fontaines D.C. say they are still trying to take the news in — telling NME that their nomination is just a “mad thing”.

    DRIVE TIME BEST OF 2020 The jet-black comedy of their follow-up A Hero’s Death does nothing to detract from this view, instead geometrically expanding their cantankerous field of vision. Heady, funny, and fearless, A Hero’s Death is a maudlin and manic triumph, a horror movie shot as comedy, equal parts future-shocked and handcuffed to history. Memorable tunes and unforgettable phrases erupt like brush fire over the course of 47 minutes, the mood migrating at a moment’s notice from insouciant nihilism to full-blown rage to radical empathy. As one does these days. https://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/fontaines-dc-a-heros-death/
