About

Dog tired are an Edinburgh based metal band, born in late 2004 from an unhealthy obsession for riffs.


Merging the relentless brutality of Gojira and Entombed with the riff oriented assault of Pantera and Metallica, Dog Tired have created a sound that is both memorable and their own.


With four well received albums under their belt, Dog Tired have earned themselves an ever growing fanbase and have relentlessly toured the UK, Ireland, the Netherlands, Belgium and have appeared at festivals such as Bloodstock, Thrashersaurus, Wildfire, Rabid Fest, Uprising, Bevvy Scotland and Bob Fest. Their most recent release 'The Electric Abyss' has received excellent reviews and press. After the success of 'Electric Abyss Tour 2019', Dog Tired are now planning tours and festivals in 2020 to reach further than ever before.
