 Pet Virus - Can I Speak to Dirt?

The band will celebrate the release with a headline single release party at Drop The Dumbulls, Liverpool on October 12th and a slew of UK tour dates. ‘Can I Speak To Dirt?’ will be released across Spotify, Apple Music & Google Play

Hailing from the suburban Merseyside town of Huyton, Pet Virus are a fuzz-laden rock band who play darkly-tinged, melodious music with a distinctly post-punk edge, spitting out songs that describe the misery of modern life, with a gnarly Liverpool council estate twist.

Describing themselves as ‘scrunge’; that is ‘scouse grunge’, the band formed from the proverbial ashes of former bands that include Enamel Animal, amongst others. The three-piece’s influences include: Nirvana, Manic Street Preachers, Future of the Left, Pixies, Kyuss, Smashing Pumpkins.

The band have gigs booked to support the single and will be gigging mercilessly to further support it. Future releases are already planned and recorded, with a plethora of material ready to go. After only a matter of months and a handful of shows, Pet Virus are already beginning to make waves.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
