Dr. Dog are set to follow up the phenomenal, Be The Void, with B-Room. It will see the light of the day on 10/1/13 via Anti Records.

The lead track, The Truth, is below. Like the video full of old Philly footage, the tune definitely harkens of yesteryear. B-Room was recorded in the band’s new studio that they built out of scratch in an old silversmith mill. Talking with Shirk during the time he set up his new studio, I can attest of the ordeal that must have been. Here’s their take on the process:

By building a space first and releasing all of that emotion, the band was then free to engage in their creative process without the expectation or preconception that they admittedly had brought into other sessions. Recorded primarily in live takes, the songs seamlessly fuse the spontaneity of the band’s live performances with the intricacy of their kaleidoscopic composition. Both Leaman and guitarist Scott McMicken credit their sonic evolution with relying less on the pre-produced demos and more with a reliance on the musicians surrounding them.
