Merge to release new album
from A Giant Dog on 6th May
Let them dance away, their heart and soul
Cause I’m too old to die young
I can’t even remember being young
AGD is raucous ear candy culled from the hook-driven melodies of Slade, the glammy swagger of Marc Bolan, the morbid fantasy of Killer-era Alice Cooper, and the unpredictable wit of Sparks. Sabrina and Andrew’s lyrics, equal parts brutally honest, clever, and debased, have a knack for taking their idiosyncratic depravities and making them feel universal. These songs are by, for, and about the losers, freaks, and outcasts. The lonely. The terminally horny. Boozehounds and party animals. No band better speaks to the hearts of slackers, burnouts, rockers, sluts, and creeps everywhere than A Giant Dog.
Pile is available for pre-order on CD and LP now in the Merge store, and digitally at iTuneswith “Sex & Drugs” as an immediate download. The first 150 LP pre-orders in the Merge store will receive a free slipmat designed by the band.
Catch the band at SXSW this year!
