Dog is Dead to play Sound Control, 9th November


With various high profile festivals under their belt including Glastonbury, Dot to Dot and most recently, Bestival, Dog Is Dead are quickly climbing the metaphorical ladder of musical success.


The Nottingham based band were signed to Atlantic Records earlier this year and have just supported Bombay Bicycle Club on their UK tour. They are also set to release their one off single ‘Hands Down’ on October 31st, which will be available to purchase on limited edition 7” and digital download.


Their previous singles, released by the band independently, have been played on prestigious radio stations such as BBC radio 1 and BBC radio 6 music to which they received rave reviews. Chris Salmon of The Guardian has even described the quintet as having a “knack for making bright, breezy and infectious indie pop”.


So, with their rapid success, you’ll be pleased to learn that the indie outfit have recently announced details of their biggest headline tour to date.


Taking place throughout November, the tour will see the band take time off from recording their long awaited album (due to be released in spring 2012) and take to the stage at popular venues throughout the UK.  Luckily, one of those stages resides right here at Manchester‘s Sound Control and is the venue for Dog Is Dead’s fifth headline show on November 9th.


Sound Control is located just around the corner from MMU’s Student Union and tickets are just £6 in advance, so there is no excuse not to head on down and catch this band before they’re huge!
