Today FONTAINES D.C. have shared a music video for “A Lucid Dream,” the thunderous and apocalyptic highlight off their newly-released second LP ‘A Hero’s Death’ (Partisan). Watch below, and feel free to share.

‘A Hero’s Death’ has been one of the best-received albums of 2020 so far, debuting at #2
on the UK charts (behind only Taylor Swift). Far from a re-hash of their swaggering 2019 debut (‘Dogrel’), ‘A Hero’s Death’ arrives battered and bruised – albeit beautiful, with songs that are patient, confident, and heady takes on the modern world and its great uncertainty. Watch their stellar remote performance of “A Hero’s Death” for Jools Holland HERE.
