Fontaines D.C. have shared a dark, surreal video for the title track of their forthcoming third album, Skinty Fia, and announced new winter tour dates for the UK and Ireland.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, frontman Grian Chatten describes Skinty Fia as a song about "a doomed, paranoid relationship with influences of alcohol, drugs, and paranoia" and its accompanying video finds the vocalist picking his way carefully through a hedonistic, and increasingly dark and surreal, party scene. 

"I hated you away from the very start," he sings. "I seen you sticking to your smile, it’s gone and broken my heart."

Watch the video below:
