The im­pres­sively monikered Dublin alt-rock trio Bitch Fal­con re­lease new sin­gle ‘Prime Num­ber’ on Oc­to­ber 18. Since the re­lease of de­but ‘Wolf­s­tooth’, the band have gained a huge fol­low­ing for their in­fec­tious mix of rock, grunge, metal, hard­core and melodic elec­tro-pop.

Hear the new gem and all of the above when they get their live air­ing at the Bow­ery on Novem­ber 18……
