Tysondog hail from Newcastle in the UK, established in 1982 during the NWOBHM boom and signed to Neat records in 1984, Tysondog grew in popularity as a heavy metal band giving them the name and status they truely deserved
Of all the New Wave of British Heavy Metal hopefuls to sign with Neat Records in the early '80s, Wallsend, England's Tysondog were among the most mindful of commercial metal trends, but like most of their labelmates, widespread success would elude them in the end. Alan Hunter (guitar/vocals), Paul Burdis (guitar), and Kevin Wynn (bass) were all bit players in northern England's highly incestuous but vibrant club scene when they formed the axis of what would become Tysondog (initially using the name "Orchrist") around 1982. the new group signed with nearby metal label Neat, secured the services of singer Clutch Carruthers and drummer Peter Reeve, and proceeded to record their first single, "Eat the Rich," in 1983.
Things seemed to be back on track for Tysondog, but much of their building momentum would soon to be squandered when Carruthers was sidelined by a serious car crash, and his resulting health issues.
In 2018 a shock arrived in the news of retiring frontman Clutch Carruthers leaving because of health issues,
his spot was filled by French rocker Bill Kendama who helped out with great performances all over the UK and Europe.
With the help of Clutch the new album Midnight features all vocals by himself .
The album is dedicated to great friend and road manager DANNY STEPHENSON, who we lost 2020
RIP our dear friend and Dog handler.
