Puppy have announced their new EP and detailed it a little.
The record is titled Vol II due for a August 12th release, and a free release show celebrating the event will take place on August 23rd at The Black Heart in Camden.
Jock Norton (vocals/guitar) said:
“With VOL II we wanted to do expand upon the foundations we’d laid with our first EP, both musically and conceptually. I think we’d wanted the first one to essentially be four singles, whereas this one has a bit more light and shade to it. I know describing something as a ‘musical journey’ is pretty naff but I feel it applies here, at least to some degree. Another thing we were conscious of was trying to streamline our sound a bit more. People always comment on the fact that we mix a lot of indie rock ideas in with more traditionally metal sounding stuff, and I think here we wanted the lines to blur even further; hopefully rather than thinking “this bit sounds like Metallica and this bit sounds like Grandaddy in quite a dichotomous way, the joints have been smoothed down a little and those ideas come together in a more coherent way. We’re very proud of what we’ve achieved and we’re really excited to share it with people.”
The track listing looks like this:
2. My Tree
5. Here At Home
