UK HEADLINE TOUR CONFIRMED – FEBRUARY/MARCH 2012

‘This upcoming Nottingham quintet have quite the knack for making bright, breezy and infectious indie pop’ – The Guardian
Following its debut last week on Huw Stephen’s show, DOG IS DEAD are proud to announce details of their next single ‘Two Devils’ out on March 5th through Atlantic Records. Produced by David Kosten (who worked with them on prior releases as well as with Bat for Lashes and Everything Everything), Rob from the band commented, ‘Two Devils’ is a tale of guilt and insanity stemming from a twisted relationship in which a girl falls sick. It’s a little dark.‘ It was recorded at RAK studios in London and was given its premier on the Bombay Bicycle Club tour. Their tour buddies have even remixed the single.
Over the next few months, the band will be trawling up and down the A1 playing headline shows in every crevice of the country so fans will have every opportunity to see the guys live in action. As part of the tour, DOG IS DEAD have also announced a London headline date at the Borderline in London on March 15th. They’ll also be playing HMV’s Next Big Thing show at London’s Garage supporting King Charles on February 7th. You’ll also be able to catch them supporting Cloud Control on February 17th at the Electric Ballroom.
2011 was a massive year for DOG IS DEAD, having released a compilation EP of their self release singles, started work on their debut album with David Kosten (Everything Everything, Bat For Lashes) and released limited edition ‘Hands Down’ – their debut major label single which gained support from the likes of BBC 6 Music, XFM, Q Radio and even a spot play on Fearne Cotton’s Radio 1 show. Furthermore, they appeared as themselves in hit TV show ‘Skins’ and played an array of festivals across the UK this summer. They rounded off the year with a a show at KOKO on New Year’s Eve.
