Dr. Dog announces ANTI- debut, Shame Shame

on January 12, 2010, 2:30pm

On April 6th, the Philadelphia pysch-rock outfit Dr. Dog will make its ANTI- Records debut with the release of Shame, Shame. Recorded with producer Rob Schnapf (Elliott Smith), the end result is said to be “the band’s most openly autobiographical release to date and peels back the layers of strings and horns of past albums to emphasize the raw immediacy of a tight unit honing their craft.”

As an issued press release goes on to note, “the stylistic reference points of Dr. Dog remain on Shame, Shame but with a darker tone. It’s an album whose themes of doubt, confusion and unanswered questions are soothed by bright harmonies, taut guitar riffs and soaring melodies. From beginning to end, Shame, Shame is a record destined to claim its place on the timeless margins, untouched by modern tastes and content to exist on its own terms.”

In support of the release, Dr. Dog has announced a ten-week headlining tour, set to begin later this month. The dates will see the band teamed up with both The Growlers and Deer Tick, and includes an appearance at the Primavera Sound Music Festival in Barcelona, Spain.
