Gun Dogs Live from S!CK comes from the Live Stream collaboration with Siyan Ltd filmed during the pandemic & much needed time for Live music for artists, fans & crew. The band were awarded an Arts Council England National Lottery Project Grant to put on the Pre recorded Live Stream ‘S!CK’ ticketed Event & costs for their first EP set for release July 2021.The EP deals with the singer's depression, getting past toxic-masculine barriers with both aggressive social commentary and curious lyricism.
Previous single releases Headcount, Gun Dogs (produced by Steph Carter ex Gallows) & Absent were added to 57 Playlists on Spotify, Deezer & Applemusic including weeks of airplay on Kerrang! Radio. Absent & Headcount Music Video’s racked up over 19K views. Featured Artist of the Week and championed by Alex Baker - Fresh Blood. They’ve played two London Headline shows selling out at Camden Assembly as part of their 2019 UK tour.
TOVA are an off-kilter four-piece rock band from the UK. Blending the in-your-face swagger of Enter Shikari and Highly Suspect with the live energy of IDLES, TOVA’s niche blend of influences immerse their rapidly growing audiences in a frenzy of intensity and emotion.
Several members were previously in the band Dirty Thrills who toured extensively in the UK and Europe. Jack left in 2018 to pursue his own creative writing, fronting his own band by forming TOVA. Dirty Thrills disbanded and Steve (drummer) joined Pete (bass) and Ben (Keys) and formed TOVA’s final line up.
Having received airplay on Kerrang! Radio - This is what Alex Baker had to say:
“Their music comes from a place of true authenticity, they’re trying to put a really positive message into the world by examining themselves and what’s going on in their lives, creating music that’s really rich and interesting.
There’s a parity between these guys and Highly Suspect
I’ve been listening to them (TOVA) non-stop, I’ve realised that this band are the real deal! I get the sensation that they’re in a band, not because they want to be in a band, not because it’s cool to be in a band, but because they HAVE to be in a band....They’ve got something to say that they have to get out and music is the only cathartic way of doing that, and to me, that separates them from the pack."
