In what has to go down as a bumper year for the Dublin band, FONTAINES D.C. have chosen to celebrate 2019 by sharing a brand new video for their fan-favourite song ‘Liberty Belle’.
With a critically acclaimed album in Dogrel, a Mercury Music Prize nomination for that same record, a host of incendiary live shows, an unforgettable moment at Glastonbury and just about every music journalist in the land hanging on their every word – 2019, has been good for FONTAINES D.C.
The band have chosen to celebrate that year by sharing the new video for their Dogrel tune ‘Liberty Belle’. 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.” It’s a rip-roaring introduction to the band if you’ve not met and acts as the perfect ice-breaker.
With 2020 looking extremely bright, we thought we’d say, cheers for one hell of a year lads, here’s to the next!
