Biography

Rob Manton (Guitar/Vocals), Matt Parry (Bass/Vocals), Ben Howarth-Lees (Drums)

"Hey Bulldog, another trio, hit the stage and immediately fire into an incendiary set. The Manchester three-piece are closer in spirit to stoner rock trendsetters Kyuss and Sleep, thick, heavy rock riffs underlaid with grooving, driving rhythm.

Guitarist Rob Manton is blessed with enough musical talent to actually justify his level of showmanship as he howls his way through the band’s material- the centrepiece being “No Future, Part II“, a hazy Krautrock odyssey utilising motorik beats courtesy of drummer Ben Howarth-Lees and hypnotic synthetic drones, which gradually build in intensity to a great wave of release.

New single “Al Lupo“, https://soundcloud.com/heybulldog/al-lupo by contrast, is back to basics with it’s Sabbath-esque riffs, heavy with distortion and flanging, perfect for a blistering desert freeway- a temperature that the room was earnestly trying to match at this point. Hey Bulldog are an outfit to watch out for, their stock is only going to rise in 2018."

Gig Review by Liam Moody, Sounds From Nowhere

Gaining 9/10 reviews from the likes of Louder Than War, 'Al Lupo' won the Amazing Radio Audition Show Poll, the bands' second single to do so making it's way onto the Amazing Radio Playlist, this followed a series of plays on BBC 6 Music, Radio X, KEXP, and BBC Introducing.

The Bands’ previous singles also mixed by EMI producers Boe Weaver (Archie Bronson Outfit, Pete Molinari, Whyte Horses, Wolf People), have all been featured by BBC 6 Music and exclusively revealed on Radio X as John Kennedy’s Xposure Hot One’s.

‘Skyscrapers of guitar, the relentless scurry of the bass all captured. Each controlled detonation; each crack of the whip is here. ‘Divide And Conquer' is a perfect exhibition for Hey Bulldog's vision.’ https://soundcloud.com/heybulldog/divide-and-conquer

Before that came the critically acclaimed and the bands first Amazing Radio playlisted single 'Under My Spell' https://soundcloud.com/heybulldog/undermyspell which was a synapse-burning ride through rock ‘n’ roll’s past, present and future.

They've been reviewed by Little Indie Blogs, Killing Moon, The Devil's Tuna and Backseat Mafia.

Alongside their own headline shows to an every growing army of rabid fans they've supported Moon Duo, Syd Arthur, Joel Gion (BJM), Hooton Tennis Club, The Lucid Dream, The Liminanas, Spindrift, The Schizophonics, Sextile as well as breaking onto the UK and EU festival circuit
