Puppy Premiere “The Kiss” Music Video

Puppy have premiered a new song titled “The Kiss.” You can find an official video for that track below:

Jock Norton said the following about the song:

“‘The Kiss‘ actually and came out of songwriting sessions for our first album ‘The Goat‘. For whatever reason it was left by the wayside, but when we started recording new material across the last year or so we decided to try laying down a proper version of it just to see how it would sound (and because we were too lazy to come up with any new songs). What we ended up with sounded way better than the acoustic version Billy had on his phone from 4 years ago, so at a vote of 2 to 1 (sorry Bill) we decided to release the new one. We hope you enjoy it.”

Billy Howard also added the following about the video:

“We teamed up with Jacek Smarz, a mysterious and enigmatic long term friend of the band, who created the batshit animations that serve as a pretty good visual representation of where our heads were at when we were recording the music. It’s the first time we’ve shared creative duties on a video with someone not in the band, and we are shocked and horrified to find the amazing difference it makes when you hand over control to someone actually knows what they’re doing.”

Puppy Announce December UK Tour

Puppy have announced a December UK tour. Inhuman Nature will open.

Tour Dates:

12/12 Bristol, UK – The Exchange
12/13 Southampton, UK – The Joiners
12/14 Leeds, UK – Brudenell Social Club
12/15 Leicester, UK – Firebug
12/16 Manchester, UK – The Deaf Institute
12/17 London, UK – The Garage (with Gender Roles)

Puppy commented:

“After sustained bouts of pressure from our musical peers, the media, and leading political figures, we have finally yielded and agreed to embark on one of our legendary UK tours. For a nominal fee, our “fans” will be able to come and watch us “play” a selection of “songs” from our back catalogue as well as being our first chance to road test a bunch of absolute face melters we’ve been cooking up over the last year.

Joining us on this mighty quest are legendary shredders Inhuman Nature, and for our hometown throw-down in London we will be also blessed with the presence of Gender Roles. Come punch yourself in the face in the front row while all three bands launch riff after riff straight into your minds why don’t you?”

Puppy Premiere New Song “Angel”

Puppy have premiered a new song titled “Angel.” You can find a lyric video for that track below:

The band commented:

“During 2020 we focused on trying to write the best album the world had ever heard. Our goal for this first single was to combine the power of ‘November Rain‘, ‘Purple Rain‘ and ‘Can you Stand the Rain‘ times 1000. I think you’ll all agree that we massively succeeded.”

They also added the following about the lyric video:

“We at Puppy have always wanted to incorporate the world of gaming into what we do. With the video for our new single ‘Angel’, we all felt that the time was right to branch out into the world on technology. When our initial proposal for a fully immersive Oculus Rift sci-fi fantasy in which our topless avatars do battle with intergalactic warlords was dismissed as ‘really expensive’ and ‘not at all believable’, we quickly suggested a Final Fantasy style concept in which incredibly muscular versions of ourselves went on quests and solved puzzles with giant axes.

This was also apparently ‘a terrible idea’. Our next approach involved a physically interactive training pod module in the style of Michael Jackson’s Space Scramble Training, in which we’d guide players on a perilous mission to Uranus. Our label threatened to drop us when we sent over the treatment.

And so we moved back, one console at a time, between operating systems and decades, until we arrived at the 8 bit capabilities of the NES, the only graphics system simple and cheap enough for us to try and imitate by ourselves. The result is our new video for ‘Angel’, a (not at all) immersive 8-bit gothic fantasy designed and animated by us with love and affection. We hope you enjoy x”

In other news, Puppy have also announced that they will be playing a headlining show at The Garage in London, England on December 17. The group are also set to perform at the Upsurge Festival in London on August 30.

Puppy Premiere “Powder Blue” Video

Puppy have premiered a new video for their song “Powder Blue.” This track is from the band’s latest EP “III.”

The group commented:

“‘Powder Blue‘ is the first song on our last EP, ‘iii‘. We called it that because it was our third EP, and because there are three of us in the band. For whatever reason, triptychs, triplets, three-pieces, and trilogies felt quite important to us at that point.

The whole idea with the songs on ‘iii‘ was that they should sound like what they are: three people in a room together, with little-to-no over-dubs, add-ons, or studio wizardry. It’s fitting then that, because of world events, the video ended up mirroring this concept in its simplicity.

We had a lot of ambitious ideas for this video going into it, and for many reasons these didn’t exactly play out how we’d hoped. But we like this video now precisely because of its limitations; because, like the EP, it’s a record of three people coming together to try and make something bigger than the sum of their parts. The fact that we failed miserably doesn’t seem to matter as much now.”

Puppy Release New EP “III”

Puppy Premiere “Poor Me” Music Video

Puppy have premiered a new video for their song “Poor Me.“ This track is from the band’s latest album “The Goat.”

Drummer Billy Price commented:

“Going into this video we wanted to try make a kind of nonsensical YouTube tutorial-cum-pound land Ted Talk. There’s a lot of content online (& elsewhere) that presents incredibly complex information as being very simple and easy.

But, whether it’s taking apart a laptop with your bare hands, or curing insomnia through breathing exercises, a lot of these kinds of tasks are actually quite difficult to do. Certainly for us as a band anyway. But whilst you might never really optimise your wellbeing or fix the weird sound coming out of your amp or whatever, it can be kind of satisfying watching someone else fix these deeply intricate things with a Zen-like ease. It’s somehow quite calming.

Anyway, with this in mind, we wanted to try approach the lyrical and tonal themes of ‘Poor Me‘ with the energy of a Youtuber conveying wildly elaborate instructions to a totally confused viewer. The resultant video may not be of any practical use at all, but it might serve as some useful distraction. Or maybe even be somehow quite calming.”

Puppy Premiere “World Stands Still” Music Video

Puppy have premiered a new video for their new song “World Stands Still.“ This track is from the band’s new album “The Goat,” which will be released on January 25 via Spinefarm Records. Drummer Billy Howard commented:

“Many of our biggest influences as a band are movies, computer games, and music that we loved as pre-pubescent/just-pubescent kids. We never really got over that kind of immature excitement for the stuff we found cool. Equally though, there’s kind of a loneliness and weirdness to being that age, which is actually probably part of the reason you throw yourself so completely into all the stuff you find cool in the first place. We think that the Goblin Girl from our new video ‘World Stands Still‘ embodies this juvenile side to our band pretty neatly. We hope you enjoy watching her adventures as much as we enjoyed filming them.”

Puppy Premiere “Black Hole” Music Video

Puppy have premiered a new video for their new song “Black Hole.“ This track is from the band’s new album “The Goat,” which will be released on January 25 via Spinefarm Records. The band commented:

“We chose ‘Black Hole‘ as the first single from the album because we felt that, both lyrically and musically, it really summed up the vibe of the record — fun and upbeat, but with a dark, sinister element underpinning the whole thing. With the video we wanted to reflect that, and show a bit of what’s gone into making our album. It’s been nearly two years in the making and in that time we’ve been on a lot of tours and spent a lot of time together in various studios, so we already had a bunch of the footage. What we ended up capturing over that period turned out to be far more sinister and malevolent than we initially imagined, but we feel the album is better for it ultimately, so we wanted to share some of that.”
