In China, 2015 was the year of the Sheep – but in countless venues and festivals in the UK it was the year of the dog.
The year that ‘Ferocious Dog’ snarled their way from the festival and gig scene to be firmly in the limelight of the alternative scene.
After sell out shows around the country the band are now performing in Morecambe next month.
As well as touring the country in spring, festival headline slots littered the summer months – not to mention an appearance on the Avalon Stage at Glastonbury, attracting the third biggest crowd of that area for the weekend.
Ferocious Dog offer a full-on six-piece sound that encompasses folk infused with rock, reggae and Celtic vibrations.
The role of the infamous hell hounds mustn’t be underestimated - an ever-growing legion of fans who follow the band up and down the country.
With the release of their new album “From Without”, the raw energy and passion you’d expect from Ferocious Dog is ever-present, but tempered and enhanced with new influences and craft.
Their guitarist is Les Carter of the former indie rock band ‘Unstoppable Sex Machine’. Carter USM headlined Glastonbury The Pyramid Stage in 1992, and other members Ken Bonsall and Dan Booth were there in the audience and Ferocious Dogs were born.
This year promises to be an even better year for the band, with gigs already sold out, and headline slots at festivals booked. They are playing at the Platform on Saturday May 7, doors open at 7pm and tickets cost £13.75, available on 01524 582803.
