New Album “Kleptocracy” May 17th 2024

Ferocious Dog’s “Kleptocracy” – A Bold Statement in Folk Punk

Ferocious Dog, a band celebrated for their fusion of traditional folk music with the raw, unapologetic energy of punk, has made a striking return with their latest album, “Kleptocracy.” This album, a powerful critique of political greed and corruption in the UK, marks a significant evolution in the band’s discography, both musically and thematically.

Lyrical Bravery and Political Commentary

“Kleptocracy” is a fearless deep-dive into the murky waters of governmental misconduct. The lyrics are poignant, charged with emotion and a sense of urgency that resonates in today’s political climate. Tracks like “Kleptocracy”, “SusLaws”, “Brixton’s Burning” and “Anger on the streets” are not only musically captivating but also paint a vivid picture of societal discontent and the struggle for justice.

Musical Fusion and Artistry

Musically, the album is a testament to Ferocious Dog’s ability to blend genres seamlessly. The use of folk instruments like the fiddle and mandolin, intertwined with aggressive punk rhythms, creates a sound that is both unique and familiar. The band has managed to elevate their musicality while staying true to their roots, a feat that is evident in tracks like “Merthyr Rising” and “Running with The Hounds Again” where the melody is both haunting and invigorating.

Vocals and Songwriting

The lead vocals in “Kleptocracy” are more passionate than ever, conveying a sense of raw honesty and strength. The songwriting, intricate yet accessible, allows listeners to connect deeply with the themes and messages. Each song tells a story, engaging the audience not just with melodies but with meaningful narratives.

Surpassing Previous Works

While Ferocious Dog has always been known for their bold statements and energetic performances, “Kleptocracy” might just eclipse their previous albums. The combination of timely political commentary and musical experimentation makes this album not only relevant but potentially influential in the folk-punk genre.

This new album takes the band’s signature sound to uncharted territories. The fusion of traditional Celtic instruments with the visceral punch of punk rock has always been their hallmark, but “Kleptocracy” elevates this blend to a new level of sophistication. Songs like “A Place We Call Home” and “Blood Soaked Shores” showcase a maturity in composition, blending intricate melodies with a raw, unfiltered edge that speaks directly to the listener’s soul.

The thematic depth of “Kleptocracy” is particularly noteworthy. Each track serves as a poignant critique of the current socio-political landscape, addressing issues from economic disparity to the erosion of civil liberties with a deftness that is both enlightening and mobilizing. It’s a soundtrack for the times – a rallying cry for awareness and action that resonates with the frustrations and hopes of a generation.

Moreover, the album’s production quality signifies a step up from their previous works. There’s a clarity and richness to the sound that enhances the impact of both the lyrics and the instrumentation. This polished production does not detract from the band’s raw energy; instead, it complements their intensity, ensuring that the message is delivered with both power and precision.

In “Kleptocracy,” Ferocious Dog has not only continued their tradition of challenging the status quo but have also pushed their musical boundaries. This album could very well be a defining moment in their career, marking a transition from a band known for their lively performances to one recognized as serious commentators on the state of the world.

Their ability to encapsulate the spirit of rebellion and resilience in their music is what sets “Kleptocracy” apart. It’s an album that doesn’t just speak to the fans of folk-punk; it speaks to anyone who hears the call for a fairer, more just society. As such, stands as a testament to Ferocious Dog’s evolution as artists and activists, marking a significant chapter in their journey and in the history of folk-punk music.

Potential Impact and Legacy

“Kleptocracy” is poised to resonate well beyond Ferocious Dog’s existing fan base. Its relevance in the current socio-political environment gives it the potential to become a landmark album in their career. It’s an album that not only entertains but also provokes thought and discussion.


In “Kleptocracy,” Ferocious Dog has delivered an album that is both a musical triumph and a powerful social commentary. It’s a bold, unflinching look at the state of politics, wrapped in a sound that is unmistakably Ferocious Dog. This album is sure to leave a lasting impact on listeners and the folk-punk scene alike.
