Puppy celebrate record deal with new Beast video


Puppy have announced that they’ve signed a deal with Spinefarm Records.

And to mark the news, the North London trio have launched a video for their track Beast. The song will be added to the band’s Vol. II EP which was originally launched in 2016. It’ll be remastered and re-released this summer on 12-inch vinyl, CD and digitally via Spinefarm Records.

Puppy say in a statement: “We couldn’t be more pleased to be working with the guys over at Spinefarm – and for a company of their calibre to be involved with us is a bit of a dream come true.

“Being able to say we’re on the same label as some killer bands we’re really into still feels mad when we stop and think about it, but more than anything, it’s a real honour. We are so stoked, my dudes.”

Head of A&R UK Dante Bonutto adds: “For me, the best bands operate on different levels – there’s the songs, of course, but behind that a way of seeing the world, a singular vision that informs both music and visuals.

“From the first time we met the guys in Puppy and heard their music, we were drawn into their world, their vision, and knew we wanted to bring that world to Spinefarm.”
