...The Rupture Dogs
The Menagerie, Belfast
Axis Of are a powerful Alternative Hardcore band based in Belfast Northern Ireland. Despite their relatively young age they have made a tremendous impact with their uncompromisingly big sound, intense live shows and thoughtful lyrics.
Following a string of packed out gigs all over Ireland they are starting to bring the same momentum over the UK and further afield. After finishing 2010 supporting Irish titans Therapy? and And So I Watch You From Afar, 2011 started with a bang when they were chosen by Rocksound Magazine to record a session in the legendary BBC Maida Vale studios aired on the Daniel P Carter Rock Show. The following UK tour was their most successful to date with Rocksound magazine labelling them “The most exciting band to come out of Northern Ireland, possibly ever”.
The band, just off the back of a successful maiden trip around Europe, are bracing themselves for recording their debut album at the end of summer and with more tours booked right up to the release it’s essential you check this band out immediately.

The Rupture Dogs are an alternative rock band formed in late 2008 and based in Northern Ireland,
hailing from Belfast.
To date they have toured the United Kingdom and Ireland, unsigned and completely self financed
– along the way producing and recording a nine track album and two four track EP’s. A line up
change in late 2010 finds the brothers McGreevy with a new bass player, John McHugh.
Since the line up change, the band has supported such acts as ‘Alabama 3’, ‘Love Amongst Ruin’
(Ex-Placebo) and ‘NOTHINK’.
