Off the back of a busy summer of festivals, sold-out shows and excursions into Europe, Ferocious Dog are hitting the road with a run of intimate 3-piece shows. Bringing deeply personal lyrics, infused with folk, rock, reggae and Celtic vibrations to the masses, Ken Bonsall, Dan Booth and John Leonard will be whipping up a musical maelstrom in a slightly more personal setting than their recent sold-out shows or main-stage festival slots have allowed. It is certainly not a show to be missed!
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.
