Dr. Dog Reveal 'Be the Void' LP

Dr. Dog Reveal 'Be the Void' LP
Now that Dr. Dog's Anti- Records debut, Shame, Shame, is well over a year old, the Philly psych purveyors have set their sights on the follow-up. The band's latest record is called Be the Void, and it will be out on February 7.

A press release notes that this collection finds the band moving away from their usual "symphonic pop" sound and "[turning] up the guitars and [delivering] a truly great cathartic rock 'n' roll album played with near reckless abandon and passion."

This "raucous" LP was recorded in Philadelphia at the studio Meth Beach, where the band previously laid down much of their previous work (although not Shame, Shame or 2004's Easy Beat, as drummer Erick Slick explained to The Tulane Hullaballoo).

The band haven't yet rolled out any new music from the forthcoming LP, but this one promises to offer a "far leaner and meaner primal sound" with in-your-face drum beats and guitar distortion. The song "Warrior Man" will be arriving on seven-inch on November 25 alongside a non-LP cut called "Control Yourself." This is for Record Store Day's U.S.-based Black Friday celebration.
