Ferocious Dog - More Fake News Tour 2019 at Thekla

About

More than a band, they are a family. "To listen to the Ferocious Dog as it snarls and growls at the world is to show responsibility" said a Louder Than War review of their brilliant, recently released and Fake News And Propaganda album, but this is an outfit that shows compassion too.
And that, in a world where the lines of truth are blurred by the rich, powerful and corrupt, is priceless.
A band that does drives for foodbanks – not for headlines, but because it was the right thing to do - a band that welcomes Hunt Sabs and conservationists Sea Shepherd to their shows, but a band where none of that really matters.
No, here the feeling is important. Ferocious Dog is the group where fans are tattooed in the shop belonging to the lead singer, Ken Bonsall, where the violinist and band leader, Dan Booth prints the posters, and Les Carter (ex-Carter USM) plays the lead guitar. They can wow a punk festival one minute, a folk festival the next – and fit right in anywhere.

With Bonsall and Booth and Carter combining and John Leonard playing just about everything with strings, while the rhythm section of Alex Smith and John Alexander bring the power and energy, you have a whole greater than the sum of its parts.
It is more than social commentary too. "My politics are my politics," explains Bonsall and "we'll sing those songs about what we believe, but whatever side of the political divide you are from, we want you to feel welcome at an FD show.
"We always say you're never alone at one of our gigs and that is the most important thing to us."
Now, they head out on the latest run of shows, with Bonsall promising some surprises. "There's a reason we've called this run more Fake News" he smiled. "We have songs on this album that we haven't played yet and we really want to, stuff like "Yellow Feather" about a Hell Hound that is no longer with us…."
Those Hell Hounds are their fans. Except, they're not. They are as much part of the band as the six on stage. And they'll hit those stages at the dates below. They've been reckoned as the "best live band in Britain." Go and see why.
