“Whatever the part of the brain is that sparks the idea for a remix when you hear a great song, even though it doesn’t always work, it was definitely fully functional when we heard A Hero’s Death,” Soulwax have said of the Fontaines D.C. track.

Soulwax have put Fontaines D.C.’s A Hero’s Death single somewhere near the doors of late eighties Hacienda on their remix which has been made available as a limited edition hand-stamped vinyl.

Both album and title-track featured prominently in Live4ever’s end-of-year lists last month; the album placed at #10 on our rundown after the review declared that, ‘a stark choice is being presented here’:

“Chatten and his cohorts are hardly the first band to turn a reputation into a post-script. There are moments however which would be grippingly brave and brilliant on any record; You Said and Love Is The Main Thing are, if such a pointless scale exists, better than anything else Fontaines D.C. have ever made public; romantic and urgent but at a profoundly deeper level of both intent and feeling.”

“A Hero’s Death is what happens when people start to talk to each other again, a jigsaw of a human being put back together. The picture revealed is of a familiar stranger.”
