Irish band Fontaines DC have finally announced their debut full length album which has been titled Dogrel.
To coincide with record news, the Dublin band have also revealed the album’s lead single ‘Big’ and accompanying video. Teaming up with Partisan Records, Fontaines DC will put out the album on April 12.
According to a press release, Dogrel signifies “a debut which is best enjoyed as a whole; it is very much in the grand tradition of the album as art form, just as this is a band very much in the classic band mold: great singles, an indefatigable work ethic and an utter aversion to standing still.”
Speaking about the video, the band said, “we felt that great ambition was a sickness, and we got Grian’s 11-year next door neighbour to say it to you all because he’s got the presence of a hundred frontmen.”
