Dog Tired are an Edinburgh based metal band, born in late 2004 from an unhealthy obsession for riffs.
Merging the relentless brutality of Gojira and Entombed with the riff orientated assault of Pantera and Metallica, Dog Tired have created a sound that is both heavy, memorable and their own.
2016 saw the band release their third full length album, ‘It Came From the Sun’. Recorded at Chamber Studio, Edinburgh. Mastered by Adam Douche of West West Side, New York and illustrated by Metal Hammer artist ‘American Vendetta’ Christian Sloan Hall, the band have created a more than worthy follow up to 2013’s ‘Titan’. Both albums are available digitally from Amazon, ITunes, Spotify, Bandcamp and the Google Play store as well as in physical format from Big Cartel and at live shows.
2018 saw DT tour Europe on the “Outpost 31” tour reaching the Netherlands and Ireland as well as all of the UK. Highlights being Thrashersaurus 2018, Uprising Fest, Bevvy Scotland and Bob Fest. With their highly anticipated new album coming in 2019 expect more touring and carnage from Dog Tired soon.
Some of DT’s touring highlights include sharing the stage with Skindred, Raging Speedhorn, Reign of Fury, Evil Scarecrow and Black Bomb A, as well as playing 2014’s Bloodstock Festival.
