A Giant Dog ready new LP ‘Toy,’ touring, playing Meltasia & Gonerfest
Austin punks A Giant Dog will release their new album, Toy, on August 25. It's the band's fourth album, and second for Merge, and was produced by the band's Andy Cashen. You can check out the storming -- and sweet -- "Photograph" from the album below.
A Giant Dog are touring this summer, and will be on the East Coast in September for Meltasia Festival with Roky Erickson, Raekwon, Mungo Jerry, and more (tickets). Right after Meltasia they'll play Brooklyn's Rough Trade on September 12. Tickets for that show are currently on AmEx presale and go on sale to the general public on Friday, June 23 at noon.
The band will also be at the 2017 edition of Gonerfest in Memphis. All tour dates are listed, along with Toy's cover art and tracklist, below.
