Today, Dublin’s Fontaines D.C. have shared a new video for their fan favourite single ‘Liberty Belle’. The video celebrates an incendiary 2019 for the band which saw them release their debut album ‘Dogrel’ to critical acclaim, earning plaudits from a vast array of major publications, receiving nominations for esteemed awards and appearing in a number of album of the year 2019 lists, including Louder Than War (#1), Dork (#5), Upset (#5), MOJO (#6), London Evening Standard (#6), Clash (#6), NME (#7), Q (#8), Long Live Vinyl (#8), The Guardian, Uncut, DIY and many more…
The video combines documentary footage from their various sold-out dates across the year and live visuals from their recent sold out shows at Vicar Street in 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.”
The band have toured extensively over the last year selling out every date of their own EU, UK and US dates in 2018, 2019 and their forthcoming 2020 shows. Similarly, the band also gave a series of mind-blowing festival performances across the year including their unforgettable Glastonbury 2019 set.
This February will see the band round off a prodigious year with their biggest UK headline show to-date at London’s Brixton Academy.
