Dr. Dog Signs With Anti-Records and Announces North American Tour

Anti Records, home to such iconic artists as Tom Waits, Nick Cave and Mavis Staples, is proud to announce the signing of acclaimed symphonious pop purveyors Dr. Dog. The band, which has amassed a dedicated audience through four remarkable albums and a steady diet of exhilarating live shows, is currently preparing to record a new LP set for release in early 2010. Guitarist-vocalist Scott McMicken promises a subtle yet profound evolution in the band's harmonic sound.

"Each album we've made was the best one we could have made at the time and I don't have any regrets," McMicken says. "But something has changed. We've never really recorded as a band before. We started as a recording project but over the years we've become a real band. We tour all the time and we have this certain place we fall into. And I think we're ready to use that as a reference point now"

In addition to studio time this summer, Dr. Dog will take their spirited live show on the road for a headlining tour with stops at the Pickathon Music Festival and Austin City Limits as well as a stint out west for some dates with celebrated neurotic troubadour and comic book artist Jeffrey Lewis.
