Our video for the album version of “Liberty Belle” is out today. The Dublin punk outfit, who released their acclaimed debut album ‘Dogrel’ last April, take stock of their hugely successful 2019 in the new visuals. Following the group out on the road, the video intersperses shots of backstage antics with ferocious live performances from the past year – including last month’s sold-out Dublin homecoming. The crowd is also captured on 35mm film.

We wanted to make this video as so much has changed and it’s been so long since we made the original one. “Liberty Belle is a lament to the death of old Dublin, written by people who couldn’t afford the new one,” says frontman Grain Chatten of the track.

This new release comes after Fontaines D.C. confirmed that they’ve finished recording their second album, which they’ve said was inspired by The Beach Boys. “We did it all in October. That’s been my real favourite moment of 2019, making the new record,” said guitarist Carlos O’Connell.

The musician went on to reveal that the upcoming LP would be “very different, both musically and lyrically” to its predecessor.
