Having begun 2019 by releasing their debut album, ‘The Goat’ on Spinefarm Records, Puppy cemented their reputation as one of the most innovative and compelling acts in modern rock. They combined hard hitting riffs, earworm melodies and scorching guitar solos in a way that managed to channel metal, grunge and power pop into something entirely the band’s own.

Not wanting to waste any time in building upon this unique sonic template, Puppy ended the year with the surprise release of an EP of brand new material. ‘iii’ saw the band stripping their compositions back to their rawest components, combining this with a spartan recording philosophy that echoed the sonic qualities of their alt-rock heroes of yesteryear.
