Dog Tired are an Edinburgh based metal band, born in late 2004 from an unhealthy obsession with riffs.
Merging the relentless brutality of early Gojira and Entombed with the riff orientated assault of High on Fire and The Haunted, Dog Tired have created a sound that is heavy, memorable, and their own.
With four well received albums under their belt and their highly anticipated 5th album titled ‘The Red Verse’ soon to be released, Dog Tired have earned themselves an ever-growing fanbase and have relentlessly toured the UK, Ireland, and mainland Europe. Their commitment to providing an intense and heavy live show has earned them recurring slots at festivals such as Bloodstock, Manor Fest Red Crust Festival, Siege of Limerick, Rabid Fest, Uprising, Hordes of Belial, and Bevy Scotland. With the new album due for release in Summer 2023, the band have already secured multiple festival appearances and tours for this year.
