Dr. Dog have just announced a series of fall shows in continued support of their new album Be The Void. The band has become renowned for their electrifying live performances.
As the Seattle Weekly described, "Watching Dr. Dog evolve over the last 6 or so years of solid touring has been a treat. They've gone from a scruffy group of seemingly shy, sunglasses-wearing goofballs to a completely confident, fully-fledged rock band. One of the beauties of Dr. Dog is that, in that transition, they've seemingly never lost their unbridled creative joy."
The band will also be recording a performance for the historic show Austin City Limits this June 25th. For more info go to: http://acltv.com/2012/05/31/june-taping-announcements-bonnie-raitt-dr-dog-and-mavis-staples
Dr. Dog's latest Be The Void combines the group's meticulously crafted pop with a far leaner and meaner primal sound which perfectly captures the rough and tumble energy of their renowned live show. The Philadelphia band entered the studio with a renewed sense of enthusiasm and confidence. "It was reminiscent of when we were starting out and were these fearless weirdoes in a basement, so confident and reckless and bold," guitarist-vocalist Scott McMicken explains.
