Dr. Dog's New Album 'Be The Void' Out Today`

Celebrated rock 'n' roll band Dr. Dog have released their greatly anticipated new album Be The Void today. This time around the band turns up the guitars and delivers a truly great cathartic rock 'n' roll album played with near reckless abandon.

The group will also be performing on Conan this Wednesday February 8th. The album is currently available for free streaming at the show's website. Just go to http://teamcoco.com/drdog

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 adds. "It was really liberating."

With its rollicking beats, spirited choruses and guitars edged with warm distortion this is the unmistakable sound of a band whose moment has arrived. Catch Dr. Dog as they take their raucous sound across North America.

Early Critical Acclaim For Be The Void:

"Be The Void is a spot-on sonic homecoming. The record's classic-rock, live-concert sound is largely indiscernible from Dr. Dog's early self-recordings, which is to say that 11 years in the business hasn't sapped any of the Philadelphia group's enthusiasm. That Dr. Dog has written some supremely catchy tunes isn't too surprising, but few would expect its (or any band's) fifth record to be every bit as exciting as its first." - AV Club

"That Old Black Hole" sounds like a glorious rally cry, like a band finally finding itself. " - Esquire

"It's a fun, rocking, swirling look at a meaningless and mysterious world." - NPR
