UK sludge-metal band VICTORIAN WHORE DOGS are pleased to announce that they have finished work on their debut full-length Afternoonified. The band have previously released two EPs to vast critical acclaim in their native UK and will release the new album on April 1st 2016. They will also embark on a tour of the UK the same week. Confirmed tour dates are below, more information and dates will be released in the next few weeks.
Frontman Danny Page commented on the album: "Afternoonified is a sludge-doom cacophony of debauched madness and sexual expression. It is not so much art, but a rejection of self, a journey into the confines of our own repressive nature to come full circle and truly understand that life itself is a rose-tinted cumstain left on the sidewalk. We are exploring ourselves, within ourselves, outside ourselves, on our shelves. It's fuzzy, doomy, riffy, and angry."
He further stated about the upcoming tour: "To coincide with this musical expression, we shall be embarking on several long weekend tours throughout the United Kingdom over April, three with Morass Of Molasses, and one with our friends Greenhorn and Tides Of Sulfur. It will be a circus without the tent, a gynecological examination with no glove. This is real, heavy, filthy, sludgy, real.

Victorian Whore Dogs are a sludge/post-hardcore band from Guildford, combining the influences of bands such as Will Haven, Neurosis, Vision Of Disorder and Iron Monkey to make a disgusting sludge fest of pounding riffs, slow tempos and abrasive vocals.
The four piece's unique brand of psychotic sludge has earned them a stature in the British doom underground with their uncompromising heaviness laced with abnormal humour and debauched stage show.
VWD have been gigging relentlessly throughout the United Kingdom including a North UK tour with Lord Misery and Burden of the Noose as well as playing with the likes of Conan, Ortega and We are Knuckle Dragger, broadcasting their brand of "Sexy Hobo Tramp core" to anyone willing (or unwilling) to hear it.
More recently VWD succeeded in winning the Reading Bloodstock Metal 2 the Masses 2015, earning them a performance slot at Bloodstock festival 2015 playing the New Blood Stage
