Dr. Dog will be releasing a special two song 7 inch to commemorate Record Store Day's new celebration of Black Friday this year. As an incentive to get people into local independent record stores the day after Thanksgiving, the celebrated Philadelphia band is offering two brand new songs, "Control Yourself" and the fuzzed out "Warrior Man."
Dr. Dog has a long DIY history, from designing and building their own stage sets to silk screening tee shirts in parking lots while on tour. This latest venture continues that hands on tradition with the single coming encased in artwork created specifically by the band, photocopied and then packaged by the musicians themselves.
Dr. Dog's Scott McMicken commented, "There's something enjoyable about being able to make this stuff or put it together, just being involved with it in that way is very satisfying."
