Dog Is Dead Reveal UK Tour Dates
Hotly-tipped Nottingham quintet Dog Is Dead have announced details of a UK headline tour, which will take place this autumn. The run of dates will kick off at Manchester’s Academy 3 on October 23, following with shows in Birmingham, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dublin, Bristol, London, Exeter and Brighton, before finishing up at Leeds Cockpit on November 6. The tour will shortly follow the release of the band’s debut album All Our Favourite Stories, out October 8.
Currently becoming a household name on the UK festival circuit and following the release of their new single ‘Glockenspiel Song’ last week, the band have taken to new heights over recent months. ‘Glockenspiel Song’ has received massive support from Radio 1 over current weeks – it was added to the station’s ‘In New Music We Trust’ playlist, branded Huw Stephens’ ‘Record of the Week’ and the band also did a session on Huw’s show last Wednesday. The track is still receiving frequent spins from the likes of Fearne Cotton and Nick Grimshaw at the radio station, with further support coming from XFM, 6 Music, Radio 2 and the NME.
Having now released three singles on Atlantic Records (‘Hands Down’, ‘Two Devils’ and ‘Glockenspiel Song’) and toured the country relentlessly, the quintet have built a hugely dedicated fanbase. They’ve already played a whopping 18 festivals this summer (including T In The Park, Dot To Dot, Hop Farm) and they still have 7 more appearances to go, which will include Reading and Leeds in August.
Over the past few months, the band have been putting finishing touches to their debut album, ‘All Our Favourite Stories’, in their native Nottingham. On production, they’ve teamed up with Nottingham’s Guy Elderfield (producer of the band’s early EP ‘Your Childhood’) and David Kosten (Bat For Lashes, Everything Everything), with other production coming from the band’s vocalist, Rob Milton. The release will showcase the band’s spine-tingling harmony arrangements and knack for writing huge, modern-day indie pop anthems.
Earlier this year, the band completed a successful 30-date UK headline tour and landed support shows with hyped artists such as Bombay Bicycle Club, King Charles and Tribes.
