“Ferocious Dog are the new noise on the block – and are surprising everyone with their rapid ascent. There is no way they’re following any hipster templates – fronted by a big burly man with a mohican who sings impassioned political songs of broken Britain whilst his band seethes like a punky Levellers – they are the music business’s worst nightmare – a great band who are going to make it without anyone’s permission”. (John Robb, Louder Than War, Glastonbury, 5th July 2016).

2016 was a defining year for Ferocious Dog. From playing Billy Bragg’s Left Field stage at Glastonbury in front of a massive crowd, to sharing the stage with The Levellers on their sold out European and UK tour in November and December and many sold out shows in- between. Ferocious Dog left the audience under no doubt that they had witnessed a band that has the talent and passion to go on to dominate the folk/punk music scene.

With European and UK tours booked for 2017, and slots at some of the UK’s and European favourite festivals, this promises to be another exciting year in the ascent of this exceptional band.
Ferocious Dog are a full-on six-piece band that encompass folk infused with rock, reggae and Celtic vibrations. The combination of instruments creates a palette of sound that offers infinite variations: going in hard to get the audience up and moving, or slipping into melodic passages and dub-like fusions. The songs are deeply personal and their fans can really identify with the words. Dan Booth, on fiddle, and John Leonard, playing just about everything with strings, bring a huge amount of intricacy to the breakneck pace of their songs. Les Carter (ex Carter USM) on guitar and the rhythm section of Alex Smith and John Alexander hold things together brilliantly, and with Ken Bonsall’s lyrics and sheer likability, you have a whole greater than the sum of its parts. Ferocious Dog are well known and popular for their high octane live performances.

In November 2015, the band sold out Rock City in Nottingham in advance – a historic moment, the first time in the 35 year history of this auspicious venue an unsigned band has achieved this feat.
The role of the infamous Hell Hounds must not be underestimated - an ever-growing legion of fans who follow the band up and down the country. They form Totem poles of people, in the mosh pit. They bring energy and passion to the gig whilst always welcoming the less initiated members of the crowd to join in and swell their ranks – everyone has a ball.

“Without doubt Ferocious Dog are one of the best bands on the UK folk punk circuit as they brought Rock City to life with their stomping, energetic sound. Not only are they one of the most hardworking bands around, but as their fans will testify, they are also one of the most approachable”. Nottingham Post. Kevin Cooper
