Dr. Dog will release its next studio album on April 6 via Anti- Records. The band switched things up with Shame, Shame by working in a professional studio and with an outside producer (Rob Schnapf). The album is said to peel away the group’s trademark layers of strings and horns to focus on the core band. Shame, Shame is also said to feature a darker tone “whose themes of doubt, confusion and unanswered questions are soothed by bright harmonies, taut guitar riffs and soaring melodies.” Dr. Dog will tour throughout the winter and spring, including a run of domestic May dates with Deer Tick.
