Dr. Dog continues push behind "Be The Void"
Psychedelic rock outfit Dr. Dog has added another U.S. leg to its 2012 outing in support of recently released "Be The Void."
The Pennsylvania rockers will return to the road Thursday (6/14) in Windham, VT, followed by a variety of festival appearances, support gigs with Wilco and headlining shows that push through mid-November.
The itinerary, which includes a June 25 taping of the renowned "Austin City Limits," features stops at Forecastle Festival in Louisville, KY (7/14); SoundTown Music Festival in Somerset, WI (7/27); Lollapalooza in Chicago (8/3); LouFest in St. Louis (8/26); and UtopiaFest in Utopia, TX (9/28); among others.
Cotton Jones will open the fall portion of the tour. Ticketing information can be found at the band's website.
Dr. Dog dropped "Be The Void," the outfit's seventh studio set, in February via the ANTI- label. The 12-track effort, which comes nearly two years after "Shame, Shame," is the band's first to include drummer Eric Slick and percussionist Dimitri Manos.
"It was reminiscent of when we were starting out and were these fearless weirdoes in a basement, so confident and reckless and bold," singer/guitarist Scott McMicken said of the new album in a press release.
The video for "Lonesome," the album's first track and second single, is currently streaming at the group's website.
