The boom is back.

Wait, no sorry, I mean - The Boomtown Rats are back.

The legendary Irish rock band, originally formed in Dublin’s fair city back in the 70s, are due to release new music next year in the shape of a new album (their first in 25 years).

Reuniting with lead singer Bob Geldof, the group will not only be releasing new music but a new documentary too.

Featuring some of the top dogs in Irish music, the production will see Bono, and Sinead O’Connor both make an appearance along with English superstar Sting.

Named Boomtown, it will be the first official documentary to chart the history of the iconic band. Filmed across Dublin, London and New York, viewers are in for exclusive interviews and an intimate look at the band’s impact on Irish culture.

The project is the first venture of BeyondTNC, which was launched as a means of developing music-related video content.

The Boomtown Rats’ new single Trash Blam Baby is out next month.
