Watch PUPPY Drummer BILLY HOWARD Jam Out And Talk About Influences, Favorite Musicians, And More!

UK-based heavy metal act Puppy are about to touch base in the US for the very first time ever in Brooklyn, NY this year before heading to SXSW shortly thereafter. The 3-piece (consisting of drummer Billy Howard, bassist Will Michael, and guitarist Jock Norton) recently released their debut album The Goat on January 25th via Spinefarm Records, and in celebration of the new tunes, the band has just dropped this new interview/jam sesh with Billy Howard. Check it!

In this Q&A-style video, Howard talks about musical influences growing up, favorite drummers, and his top songs to play live with the band (among many other things!). With a similar vibe to bands like The Manx, Puppy have a quirky, tongue-in-cheek vintage style that they wear proudly, and Howard fully endorses it here.
