Following an exclusive play on Huw Stephens’ Radio 1 show, Dog Is Dead return with their third release, ‘Glockenspiel Song’ on Atlantic Records available from 23 July. The band are also pleased to announce the title of their debut album, ‘All Our Favourite Stories’, which will release this autumn.
2012 has seen the band grow from their modest Nottingham roots. After selling out a huge homecoming show at Rock City in December last year - a testament to their loyal native followers - they made their mark around the UK with a massive 30-date headline tour in February. They honed their thrillingly harmonious live show and played shows alongside the likes of King Charles, Bombay Bicycle Club and Tribes. Now after releasing two singles ‘Hands Down’ and ‘Two Devils’ through Atlantic Records, the band have gained continuous support from the likes of Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, Nick Grimshaw and Fearne Cotton, 6Music and XFM along with key supporters at The Guardian and NME.
For the past few months, the quintet have been putting the finishing touches to their debut album ‘All Our Favourite Stories’. Having enlisted Nottingham based producer, Guy Elderfield, who has worked on the band’s earlier EPs including ‘Your Childhood’, production also comes from lead singer, Rob Milton and David Kosten (Everything Everything, Bat For Lashes).
Things kicked off for the band after Glastonbury 2010, after their performance of fan favourite ‘Glockenspiel Song’ aired on BBC2’s highlights that year - the only unsigned band to appear on the show. This in turn led to a live performance of the track on cult TV show, Skins, and opened up multiple opportunities which are set to continue throughout the year.
