Bio

The Pugs came out of their corner swinging, in early 2008. The lightweight acoustic duo soon grew into a heavyweight folk rock band. After a few near knockouts due to member losses, The Pugs collapsed back into their corner. But after a stirring training montage worthy of the Rocky franchise, they've spat out the blood, wiped off the sweat and refused to throw in the towel. 2010 sees these pugilists back stronger than ever with a 6-piece lineup and ready to fight once more.
