Having just finished a headline North American tour, which saw them sell-out shows in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Toronto & San Francisco and culminated with a sold-out show at New York’s Bowery Ballroom, Irish rap trio KNEECAP have today announced details of their Toddla T produced debut Heavenly single ‘Better Way To Live’.

Fontaines D.C. ‘s superconductor frontman Grian Chatten brings a louche and ruffled charm to KNEECAP’s relentless and addictive bounce and his band mateTom Coll joins on drums.


Talking about the track, which is accompanied by a Peadar Gill directed video filmed in Madden’s Bar in Belfast (where Grian and Kneecap first met), KNEECAP said:

‘A Better Way To Live’ is all about finding that little spark of joy in the monotony, in the day-to-day things that you barely bat an eye at. In between the moments of that repetitive lift of the pint, or spark of a cigarette, there is an opportunity for bliss. underneath that constant noise, there is a silence that can breathe new life and inspiration breaking through the mundane.

The single has premiered on BBC 6 Music with Huw Stephen’s today.

A fantastically entertaining and mesmerising live act, KNEECAP play three English headline dates at the end of November where they will be joined by our very own OneDa in support and Cooper T opening up.
