Puppy take you behind the scenes on their UK tour

Puppy backstage

This summer, slacker rifflords Puppy embarked upon their headline 'World Tour Of The UK' with their buds Grove Street Families. Two of the hottest bands in the UK underground, teaming up for a run of rock 'n' roll debauchery... right? Well, that depends how debauched you think the flippy bottle game is.

Filmmaker Sean Black followed Puppy on their trek across the United Kingdom, capturing their backstage antics, exploring derelict buildings, life in the van and getting in a bit of bother with the law. All with massive grins on their faces.

Watch the tour diary below, and check out Puppy at one of their upcoming winter shows with Creeper, King 810 or Monster Magnet.

Puppy's debut album The Goat is out January 25 and is available to pre-order now.

He also wrote regular features for the magazine, including a 2018 cover feature for his very favourite band in the world, Slipknot, discussing their turbulent 2008 album, All Hope Is Gone.
