Folk-punks FEROCIOUS DOG have announced the rescheduled dates for their 2021 UK tour and forthcoming new album The Hope.
The 22-date tour will start in Liverpool at the O2 Academy 2 on Friday 8 October and concludes at the Leadmill in Sheffield on Sunday 4 December.
The band promise those attending “will be part of something very special, watching one of the very best folk-punk bands in the UK with a high octane explosion of the very best live music. People who have attended Ferocious Dog shows know exactly what to expect. People who are new to FD live shows will be welcomed by the 'Hell Hounds' as part of the growing FD family.”
To coincide with the tour, Ferocious Dog release their brand new studio album The Hope which takes its name “from a song idea from Dan Booth and written by Dan and myself,” explains Ken Bonsall. “The Hope is a very hard hitting and deep reflection of someone coming to terms and living with depression.” While the album cover, created with Daniel Hubb at Make-North (Bullet For My Valentine), “had to be hard equally hitting to create and capture the sentiment of the song.”
The Hope carries on in the strong tradition of Ferocious Dog albums, with thought-provoking and politically charged lyrics, seamlessly combing with dynamic and eclectic music. Ferocious Dog now have two new band members Johnny Edwards and Ryan Brooks “chomping at the bit to put their stamp on this new album”
Released on 16 October through Graphite Records, The Hope is available to pre-order on CD and vinyl, with ticket and t-Shirt bundles available, plus an exclusive limited edition green vinyl album, limited edition cassette and signed CDs here.
