Dr. Dog's Brooklyn Bowl holiday show (more by Tim Griffin)
Dr. Dog

Dr DogDr. Dog will be putting out their new record (and their first on Anti-), Shame, Shame, on April 6th (cover art pictured). Rob Schnapf, whose past work includes Elliott Smith and Beck, helped produce the record. The band writes that once their Facebook page gets 20,000 friends (currently in the 7,000s and counting) they'll leak the first song from the album, "Shadow People."

Dr. Dog will be going out on an extensive winter/spring tour, which has extended its previous route quite a bit. Currently they play about two-weeks worth of shows in January/February, and then spend the entire months of April and May on the road. That second leg includes a run of shows with Deer Tick, including their joint Terminal 5 date announced a while back that happens on Saturday, May 15th. Tickets are still on sale.

Deer Tick have been spending the winter wrapping up their own new, third album for Partisan Records. No title yet, and the band reports that it'll be "released in the first half of this year." Their pre-Dr. Dog tour plans include SXSW (where DT frontman John McCauley is reportedly throwing a show of his own too).

All tour dates, a live performance of "La La La" (the first song off Deer Tick's new-ish digital EP, more info below) and a video from Dr. Dog's holiday show are below...
