After a quiet year and change, Philly rock five-piece Dr. Dog is back with a new single, a new album on the way and a tour that has the band headlining Festival Pier at Penn’s Landing on Saturday, June 23rd; Philly house show scene favorite (Sandy) Alex G opens the night.

The new single from the band’s forthcoming tenth album Critical Equation, out on Thirty Tigers on April 27th, marks a surprising first impression from the band; “Listening In” is dark, it’s pensive, unrelentingly so. As I wrote on NPR Music’s Songs We Love this morning, “It’s the moment of realization just before emotional trauma hits home; it’s a sadness so profound that it can’t be spun into a lighthearted song.”

The record was produced by Gus Seyffert, and recorded at Dr. Dog’s Mt. Slippery studio in Clifton Heights, PA. The band kicks off its 2018 tour in Phoneix on March 2nd, and will be joined on various legs by Kyle Craft and Son Little, before (Sandy) Alex G comes on board in June. Check out the full run of dates below, along with the Critical Equation cover art, and get tickets and more information on the Festival Pier show at the XPN Concert Calendar.
