Dr. Dog tests 'Fate' on headlining outing
Indie-rockers Dr. Dog will seek their "Fate" on the road in early 2009 with a slate of headlining shows to support the band's latest studio effort.
The Philadelphia-based group kicks off the outing Feb. 11 in Raleigh, NC, and will make stops in 11 Southern cities during the two-week tour, winding the trip up Feb. 24 in Charlottesville, VA. Dates are below.
"Fate," the band's fifth studio album, surfaced in July. The set, which was recorded over the last five years in the group's own North Philadelphia studio, is streaming in full at Dr. Dog's MySpace page.
"We spend a lot of time together, maybe more than any person should spend with another, but that's not a complaint," the band wrote at its website earlier this year. "It's to say that when you spend this much time with a bunch of dudes, you learn from one another and you learn something about yourself.
"Not sure what that's got to do with anything, but at the moment we listen to this record and think that all the time we spend together has as much to do with the album as anything else."
The album follows last year's "We All Belong," which ranked No. 39 on Rolling Stone's year-end Top 50 Albums list.
