Dr. Dog, which will release its eighth studio album, “The B-Room,” on Oct. 1, today shared a new song, “Truth,” via a lyric video.
According to Spin:
Leaving their beloved Meth Beach behind, the gang set to building a fresh space in an old silversmith mill themselves, and when they were done, they began to work.
They’d more or less spent what would have been their demo period on construction, and instead of slowly developing ideas brought in by bassist-singer Toby Leaman and guitarist-singer Scott McMicken, Dr. Dog worked together from scratch, mimicking the manner in which they built their studio. “I used to think that all I needed was a track recorder and a bunch of instruments in a room,” said McMicken via statement. “Now I realize that I’m useless by myself.”
The group recorded much of the new album in full-band live takes, which wound up lending the songs an urgency and a simplicity they might have lacked otherwise.
