Ferocious Dog are an English six-piece band, that deal in a vibrant vein of Celtic-folk-infused punk rock. Their eclectic style is tied together by their shared desire to communicate through music. Therefore, their lyrics are often politically charged and bold.
The band has headlined tours of the UK and Europe, performed in Kenia and Dubai and at festivals such as Bearded Theory, Alchemy, Deerstock, Farmer Phil's Festival, Splendour, Lowlands (Netherlands), Glastonbury Festival, and Beautiful Days.
"To listen to the Ferocious Dog as it snarls and growls at the world is to show responsibility," said a Louder Than War review on the 2019 “Fake News and Propaganda” album.
With the new album “The Hope” released in 2021, the Ferocious Dog have stepped right out of their shadow, showing a band hitting their stride. The first single from the LP “Pentrich Rising” hammers home how powerful a live standard this is going to be. “Broken Soldier”, hits you full in the face, lyrically superb, with The Taliban introduction sample as apt for present times as anything you’ve ever heard, coupled with the damage done within modern warfare. An accompanying video, directed by Justin Griffiths, won the European Film Festival’s Jury Diamond Award for the short best music video for August 2021.
