Hotly-tipped Notts lads quintet Dog Is Dead are gearing up to release their debut album and are making the occasion with a special homecoming show.
Currently becoming a household name on the UK festival circuit and following the release of their singles Two Devils and Glockenspiel Song, the band have taken to new heights over recent months.
Glockenspiel Song has received massive support from Radio 1 and 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.
Dog Is Dead played a whopping 25 festivals this summer and over the past few months, the band have been putting finishing touches to their debut album, All Our Favourite Stories, in their native Nottingham.
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.
Dog Is Dead are set to play The Boat Club in Nottingham on Monday 8th October.
Their debut album All Our Favourite Stories is released the same day and an extensive UK tour will follow.
