June 25th, 2023

Fontaines D.C.’s vocalist Grian Chatten made his debut solo appearance on Later…With Jools Holland last night (June 17) – check out footage Above!

Chatten released his first solo single ‘The Score’ in April and took to Jools Holland on Saturday night to perform follow-up track ‘Fairlies’.

“I wrote ‘Fairlies’ in intense heat,” Chatten explained at the time. “Partly in Jerez, Spain, partly in LA a couple of days before a Fontaines D.C. tour kicked off. It was a quick write, and I believe I celebrated each line with a beer.”

Chatten is set to release his debut solo album ‘Chaos For The Fly’ on June 30. The album is co-produced by Dan Carey, who has helmed all three of Fontaines D.C.’s albums to date.

In August, Fontaines D.C. will head out on the road to support Arctic Monkeys on their 2023 North American tour. According to guitarist Carlos O’Connell, the band are planning to “go back into the mindset of writing” after that run of shows.
