It gives us great pleasure to announce that we’re joining folk-punk legends Ferocious Dog for their stop at Exeter on their UK tour on Saturday 18th April.
We are massive fans of FD ourselves and cannot wait for this show. The Phoenix is a fantastic venue and to be honest, we’d be there to watch them play regardless, so it goes without saying that we’re a bit excited! If you haven’t come across Ferocious Dog yet, we would highly recommend you click here to find out more. Trust us, it’s worth it.
Creating their own take on Traditional Celtic folk, Ferocious Dog takes the traditional instruments; fiddles, whistles, mandolins and mixes them up with a bit of, raw, buzz saw rock n’ roll attitude. With their unique, aggressive yet feel-good music they tear up venues across the country often bringing their faithful Hell Hounds along for the ride.
For many years Ferocious Dog have appeared at small venues and pubs, until in 2009 where the band were given the opportunity to play at Bearded Theory Festival, they went down a storm, were asked to return the following years and ultimately playing the main stage in 2012 where their popularity grew tenfold. After this opportunity, gig and festival offers from all over the county starting coming in thick and fast, and popularity of their new EP produced by Gavin Monaghan shot through the roof. Now fresh on the back of 2 successful EPs and a new eponymous album, Ferocious Dog are playing festivals across the country. Last year they played Farmer Phil’s, the farmer liked them so much he got them back to headline the Friday night for 2013!
