The Irish band have not released any new music since 2022’s third album ‘Skinty Fia’ (except for a cover of Nick Drake’s ‘Cello Song’ for a compilation album), but it seems that may soon be about to change.  

In the new 30-second clip, frontman Grian Chatten is seen topless and in bright green trousers, with a black, swollen eye and heavy cuts and bruises all over. He is petting a pig, while the mystery song plays over the top. 

Watch the clip below:

I wanna see you alone / I wanna sharp the stone / I wanna bounce the bone / I wanna mess with it”, Chatten sings in rapid fire delivery over a tight, metronomic rhythm, with heavy, chiming guitar chords joining in towards the end of the excerpt. 

In December, the band teamed up with Massive Attack and Young Fathers to release a limited edition 12” single to support Médecins Sans Frontières in their relief efforts in Gaza. 

“Fontaines DC join millions across the world in demanding an immediate ceasefire and a permanent end to Israel’s brutal occupation of Palestine,” they wrote at the time. 

“Since October, Doctors Without Borders have been on the ground in Gaza, where every human is an IDF target, risking their lives to give vital care to the thousands injured by Israel’s indiscriminate attacks on the starving and defenceless. We feel utterly helpless in what we can do at this point, however we do hope our small contribution to this record can raise some desperately needed funds for Doctors Without Borders in Gaza. Ceasefire Now. Free Palestine.” 

Chatten opened up in an interview with NME last year about suffering mental health issues while touring, revealing he previously experienced “fits of anxiety and rage”. 

The Irish musician, who released his debut solo album ‘Chaos For The Fly’ last summer, reflected on how his attitude to touring has evolved over the years. 

“Around ‘A Hero’s Death’, I was really struggling to reshape myself to fit this new kind of lifestyle, and I was dealing with fatigue… and mental illness; the depression that occurred,” he explained. 

“The anxiety was pretty intense as well. I was just sick of not fucking living anywhere for five years. I didn’t even think about the fact that half a decade had passed without me feeling like I belonged anywhere outside of a tour bus.” 

Chatten later also appeared on Kneecap’s single ‘Better Way To Live’ in November last year.
