DR. DOG Announce New Album

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


DR. DOG ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM

B-Room Out October 1st On Anti-

SPIN Premieres First Track Today

Band To Open For The Lumineers This Fall


Philadelphia's Dr. Dog will release their new album entitled B-Room October 1st on Anti-. Showcasing some of their most mature, streamlined and soulful writing to date, the record 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.

B-Room, in its purest form, is a soul album. It may be obvious as the first track opens with the Gamble and Huff inspired, “The Truth.” But as the album progresses the music continues to take on a soulfulness that is vibrant in its simplicity. As McMicken put it, “The hallmark of soul music for me is that the arrangements are simple rather than virtuosic, and that the sound creates a feeling that is intuitive rather than intellectual.” To listen to the “The Truth” care of Spin Magazine go to: http://www.spin.com/articles/dr-dog-the-truth-stream-b-room-new-album/

The story begins with jackhammers instead of guitars. After ending the lease at home studio “Meth Beach” where they had been headquartered for the past eight years, the musicians took on the commitment of constructing an entirely new recording space within a now defunct silversmith mill. As the band's bassist-vocalist Toby Leaman put it, “The whole process of recording really started with building the studio.”
