Fontaines DC share new track ‘Boys In The Better Land’

The Dublin quartet have released another cut from ‘Dogrel’, ahead of its release this week.

Ahead of the release of their incendiary debut album later this week, Dublin quintet Fontaines DC have shared a final taste from it.

Landing in the form of ‘Boys In The Better Land’, the latest track to be taken from their first full-length is another pummelling number which encapsulates their gritty energy.

The track gets taken from ‘Dogrel’, which is out this Friday (12th April) via Partisan - catch up with our review here.
