• Watch: The Rupture Dogs – Before The Flood

    Having launched it at Belfast’s Stiff Kitten on Friday night, Belfast-based alt-rock band The Rupture Dogs have released the video to their new single, ‘Before The Flood’. Film, directed and edited by Ryan Douglas, the video features the four-piece performing the track with typical intent, culminating in a suitably seismic final fifteen seconds not entirely unlike the band’s live show. ‘Before The Flood’ is taken from the band’s twelve-track debut album, Feral. Stream that here. Watch the video for ‘Before The Flood’ below.
