Say hello to Big Dog...

BIG DOG, the band formed by ex-BLACK GRAPE and RUTHLESS RAP ASSASSINS vocalist KERMIT have announced details of their debut single.

‘Raise The Alarm’ will be released on April 2 via Jive, and will feature remixes of the title track as well as new song ‘Natural Disaster’ across the formats.

In addition to Kermit, Big Dog also features ex-Ruthless Rap Assassins drummer Ged Lynch.

Kermit has remained out of the spotlight since the split of Black Grape, but his new band are now putting the finishing touches to their debut album, which they are recording in a cottage halfway up Snowdon in north Wales.

Big Dog are expected to finalise a series of tour dates to precede the release in mid-March.
