Roofdog were formed in 1998 by a group of disaffected west Auckland youths, eager to play music.
Sounding more like Rancid than the Specials Roofdog have a sound of their own, setting them apart & earning them new fans with every show. They have featured on two compilations by Indie label Puppy Killer Records 'Pick of the Litter Volume 1' (2003), & 'Pick of the Litter Volume 2' (2004) - and also appeared on Global Routes 'Underground Resistance' compilation.
Live shows continue to be a priority for the band with a regular feature being the annual Strummerday gig held every year to mark Joe Strummerís birthday. Jordan Luck has appeared at this event with Roofdog and is now an enthusiastic fan and a great source of inspiration for the band.
Shows in the North and South Island supporting UK punk legends Stiff Little Fingers at the Powerstation in Auckland and The Civic in Christchurch were highlights of 2008.
In 2009 the band embarked on a nationwide tour to promote the release of their new single 'Metaliska'.
In July 2010 the debut self titled Roofdog album was released and the band hit the road, braving the winter to play release shows in Wellington, Christchurch, Dunedin and Queenstown.
