PURSUED BY DOGS are gearing up to the release of their debut album with a series of releases and
gigs across spring / summer 2017. ‘A Tunnel | Whiskey Ruin EP’ is released digitally on 4th May, 2017

the Workman’s Club on Saturday, 13th May to mark the release of the EP.

PURSUED BY DOGS are Andrew Brennan – vocals, guitar; Ronan Marr – production; Suzanne Purcell –
vocals, keys; Dave Sheehan – bass.
