“Hey Bulldog are a great band, this sounds fantastic!” John Kennedy, Radio X Xposure 

Manchester Psychedelic Blues Rock trio Hey Bulldog announce a brand new Single “Stranger”, available digitally from 21st April 2017 at the bands Bandcamp page, with live UK and EU dates to be announced for the rest of the year.
The glam inspired riff driven garage rock track was recorded at Manchester’s Crack Studios and produced by guitarist and songwriter Rob Manton, teaming up once again with EMI producers Boe Weaver (Archie Bronson Outfit, Pete Molinari, Wolf People, Whyte Horses) who took on the mixing duties after working on the bands last three critically acclaimed singles.
“Stranger” follows “Divide and Conquer” which gained many plaudits and major radio support having been exclusively revealed on Radio X as John Kennedy’s Xposure Hot One, with additional plays from Steve Lamacq, Chris Hawkins BBC 6 Music, Indie 103 Los Angeles, and Charlie Ashcroft Amazing Radio.

Hey Bulldog –  Rob Manton (Guitar/Vocals), Matt Parry (Bass/Vocals), Ben Howarth-Lees (Drums) – are the saviours of Manchester rock ‘n’ roll. Favourites on the live circuit of their home town and gaining acclaim beyond its’ frontiers, their sound is a bluesy psych jambalaya of hot riffs and saucy grooves.
Frontman Rob is a 21st century gunslinger, fingers dancing and notes flying. He sings with a Mid-Atlantic holler that helps provide the band with a peculiar sense of dislocation that results in Hey Bulldog sounding that they could have originated from anywhere, and any-when. Rob founded Hey Bulldog, named from the Beatles song of course, with the intention of making music that was a 100% representation of the music he wanted to make.
Matt is a four string swashbuckler, providing the groove in an age of psych which can often leave little bass space. Drummer Ben is a blur of arms, often shifting out of the capacity of the human eye. Whether it’s holding a rock steady groove or bursting into expansive, showman style acts of legerdemain, he’s a Tasmanian devil on a leash.
The remarkable quality of Hey Bulldog is their status as a power trio in an age which has forgotten the power trio. Each member is as highly skilled and as pivotal as the next. Together they take the sound higher and groovier. Rob provides the muscle, Matt the groove and Ben the fireworks.
They have played a number of festivals all over the UK and have had support slots with Moon Duo, SLUG (Field Music), Joel Gion (Brian Jonestown Massacre), Frightened Rabbit, Howlin Rain, Syd Arthur, Hooten Tennis Club.

Upcoming Dates:
22/4 Halle St Peter’s Church Manchester,
28/4 Jamcafe Nottingham
13/5 Deaf Institute Manchester w/ The Lucid Dream
