PUPPY UNLEASH VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE “DEMONS,” THE FIRST TRACK FROM FORTHCOMING DEBUT ALBUM
PUPPY have issued the video for new single “Demons.” Directed and produced by Puppy drummer Billy Howard Price, the video delves into their recent exploration of “Ascension & Transcendence…”
“The song is about learning to live with and accept your demons, and how they can even have a positive impact on your life,” said the band. “For the video, we wanted to create something inspired by various cults, quasi-religions, and pseudo-sciences that literally sell the notion that they can free you from unhappiness. Which is of course a lie as true happiness can only come from buying the music and merchandise of Puppy.”
Watch the video for “Demons” HERE.
Puppy have also been in the studio working on their debut album with producer Tom Dalgety (Ghost, Royal Blood, Killing Joke). “Demons” is the very first taste of new music from that forthcoming record.
A release date for the album will be revealed shortly.
The North London three-piece reissued their reworked EP, Vol II, on CD and vinyl via Spinefarm Records on September 29. This new, six-track version was remastered and expanded, with video track “Beast” featured, and pressed onto “crystal clear” vinyl with extra artwork elements added.
Additionally, one in every 20 of the vinyl versions will contain a surprise treat from the band; these include polaroids, hand-written notes and drawings. Copies are available for purchase HERE.

CHARCOAL TONGUE RELEASE FIRST IN SERIES OF THREE EPS DIGITALLY
24 HOURS: MY DETERIORATION OUT NOW
CHARCOAL TONGUE are defying music industry conventions and releasing music their way. The band has dropped 24 Hours: My Deterioration, the first of three digital EPs, on October 20 via Spinefarm Records.
“‘My Deterioration’ is the introduction to the Charcoal Tongue story,” said singer Christopher Mora. “I was in a really dark place writing these songs and I think that translated into this EP sonically and lyrically. I needed to get this part of the story off my chest in order to make it to self-realization and eventual recovery. Stay tuned as we unveil the remaining pieces of this puzzle.”
“My Deeds on Display”
“Lead You to the Dark”
More of the Charcoal Tongue mystique will be revealed soon and via the subsequent EPs.
STEVE ‘N’ SEAGULLS RETURN WITH “ANTISOCIAL”
NEW SINGLE OUT NOW THROUGH SPINEFARM RECORDS
Finland’s finest farmers STEVE ‘N’ SEAGULLS are back with two hillbilly-fied versions of the classic track “Antisocial” by Gallic legends Trust, which was also made famous by Anthrax.
Going bilingual, the S’N’S boys are shaking the foundations by releasing the track in both French and English. Hootenanny headbanging is officially a global craze and is spreading like wildfire!
“Hello hello! We’ve been touring quite a lot in France, and it’s been great, by the way,” the band said. “We were told about this amazing punk rock song by Trust, and since Pukki is a multi-lingual Renaissance Man, it felt good to make the song in both French and English. The arrangement came together when we added accordion, cowbell, doubled the bass drum, and threw in some string instruments. For us, this song is very to-the-point and it feels good to do something different for a change! Oui monsieur! See you on tour!”
The video for the French version of the song will be released on October 27.
