Dublin’s Fontaines D.C. have had an incredible year to say the least. Their debut album ‘Dogrel’ was shortlisted for the Mercury Prize, top 10 in the UK album charts, album of the year at Rough Trade and BBC Radio 6 and a string of highly successful shows across the continent.
With 2020 just starting the band released the music video for fan favourite ‘Liberty Belle’. The video has footage from the bands sold out tour dates with live footage from their recent sold out shows at Vicar Street, Dublin.
Speaking about the track frontman Grain Chatten says, “Liberty Belle is a lament to the death of old Dublin, written by people who couldn’t afford the new one.”
