DR. DOG Premieres New Track Via Stereogum

Stereogum.com has premiered a brand new track from the Philadelphia band Dr. Dog entitled “Broken Heart.” The song, an energetic supremely catchy burst of re-imagined soul, is from the group's upcoming new album B-Room which hits stores October 1st. Listen to the song by going to: http://www.stereogum.com/1448161/dr-dog-broken-heart-stereogum-premiere/video/ .

B-Room is the culmination of a complete overhaul of the band’s writing and recording process, which finds them in a new self-built studio, writing songs live in rehearsal, and using the rock solid groove of the band, honed through workmanlike touring, as a powerful compositional tool. In its purest form, B-Room is a soul album. In an early review of a new song "The Truth" CMJ said this reconfigured sound, “Breezily pays homage to the kings and queens of Philly soul while allowing the boys to keep carving out a path of their own.”

Fans can pre-order B-Room via http://www.drdogmusic.com

Dr. Dog, renowned for their raucous and transcendent live shows, will be touring North American in support of the new album. The itinerary includes an anticipated September 15th sold out performance at the Red Rock Amphitheater with The Lumineers.

Early Acclaim For B-Room's Sound:

“Reminiscent of the sounds of old-school soul and Motown tracks, but there is still a distinct modern/garage rock edge... What more could you ask for?” - Filter

“The live take approach has stripped the band to their core, removing a lot of the psychedelic pomp and circumstance to leave only the soulful swagger of warmly vibrating organ, methodical guitar work, and McMicken’s world-weary harmonies.” - Consequence Of Sound
