Known for their signature gut-punching, fast-paced sound, Bristol punk rock ‘n rollers Split Dogs have hit the scene hard since the release of their debut album in 2023. Cultivating a loyal and growing fanbase with their raucous stage performances, hard-hitting hooks and infectious lyrics, the band are smashing back into action with their first single for Venn Records, the stomping, high voltage And What? The band wanted the accompanying video to have the same optimistic British candour of classic sitcoms like Only Fools And Horses and Benidorm with big nods to documentary photographer Martin Parr. The band have just finished work on their new studio album with more info and a release date coming soon.

“It’s a total embrace of working-class British seaside culture, I grew up in south London and in 2016 relocated to a small coastal town in the southwest. The song highlights the frustration of living and working in a seasonal holiday resort all summer with no holiday whilst the world around you has theirs. I’m also poking fun at myself for being grumpy and using some of the outdated British phrases my dad used to say to me as a kid. On your bike son!” (guitarist Mil Martinez)

Split Dogs

Split Dogs will be tour in the UK across the Spring & Summer, including appearances at Bearded Theory Festival and Rebellion Festival.
