Ferocious Dog - Fake News and Propaganda Tour

About Ferocious Dog - Fake News and Propaganda Tour

Ferocious Dog have been described as England’s best folk-punk band, they tour relentlessly and most of their gigs are sold out.

“The Celtic/folk punk act are full of energy. In true punk sensibility, it’s a set full of anger, rage, fury and takes aim at the ills of society. There’s acoustic guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle and more all tied in with the more traditional punk elements. Thankfully, not all of this is at the same time and whilst there’s always six instruments being played at any one time, it never becomes overwhelming. Instead, it’s all blended together to ensure people are jumping and singing from start to finish. Ross, Moshville.co.uk

Fake News & Propaganda (to be released Feb) is Ferocious Dog’s most eclectic album to date. Some of the songs are co-written with Jeremy Cunningham (Levellers) and Nick Burbridge (McDermott’s 2 Hours. The album tackles issues such as “fracking” “media brainwashing” and “mental health” amongst others.

Ferocious Dog are 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.

Singer Ken Bonsall, having watched Ken Loaches very upsetting film “I Daniel Blake”, decided that he would use the band’s ever growing audiences to bring to the fore the problem of homelessness and poverty at the Ferocious Dog’s gigs. It has become public knowledge that at each gig, the band organize a Charity Food Drop for the homeless, liaising with the local Food Banks in the areas they play. Punters bring, non-perishable food, blankets, toiletries to the shows, and representatives from the food bank arrive to collect the goods. Sometimes it amounts to a van full.

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.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Ferocious Dog - Fake News and Propaganda Tour are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
