Hit of The Week: Fontaines DC ‘Jackie Down The Line’

 Fontaines DC have announced their third album ‘Skinty Fia’, set for release on 22nd April on Partisan Records.

Revealing first single ‘Jackie Down The Line’ alongside the news, the record is said to show the band “addressing their Irishness from afar as they recreate new lives for themselves elsewhere”.

Introducing… Chubby and the Gang

West London five-piece Chubby and the Gang are balanced by two energies. For every moment of punk imperfection, there’s an intricate flurry of detail!

Made up of musicians from across the consistently thriving and criminally overlooked UK hardcore scene, Chubby and the Gang marinate its characteristic speed and sick-of-it-all energy in a mixture of 50s pop sounds. The result is a prickly take on the older, more melodic genres that punk derives from, chewing them up and spitting them out into something mangled but revitalised.

Through sheer force of strength, their debut album Speed Kills pummelled its way out of the local hardcore scene and across the Atlantic, where it was met with a landslide of critical acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork and Rolling Stone.

Now, they have unleashed their brand new single ‘Lightning Don’t Strike Twice’, which will be part of a double A-side 7” with new’un ‘Life’s Lemons’ released on 28th May via Partisan.
