The Truth About Dr. Dog’s New Dates

You could say that this band has been working like a dog. After a September/October trek with The Lumineers, Dr. Dog will stay on the road for its own headline tour. Plus, the Philadelphia rockers have already recorded a follow-up to 2012’s “Be The Void.”

Marking Dr. Dog’s eighth full-length album, B-Room is due out Oct. 1 on Anti-. Check out the video for the track “The Truth” below. CMJ writes, “The track breezily pays homage to the kings and queens of Philly soul while allowing the boys to keep carving out a path of their own.”
