Cobbled together from pieces of lates and greats such as the Russians, Black Eyes and Neckties and, most notably, the instrumental juggernaut that was Cicadas, Dog Shredder is an amalgamation of disparate musical elements that taste great together. Imagine the aural experiments of Sonic Youth coupled with a Sabbath-style dB beat down. Imagine the ferocity of punk applied with the precision of prog. Imagine scalpel-sharp arrangements delivered cinder block heavy.
Well well well. Things have been slow on the Blog but we've had a busy few months even though it may not look like it from the outside. We wrapped up our tour with Dysrhythmia and holy shit does that band destroy. I can't think of a band out there that shreds quite like these guys do so check them out. Test of Submission is out and you should hear it. You can read their tour blog with LOTS of pictures over here.
We have several shows coming up. Saturday February 9th at the Shakedown in Bellingham:
Then two dates with RED FANG and FEDERATION X in Seattle and Portland February 16 and 17:
Also, a show March 2 for FREE at the Shakedown to celebrate the 15-year anniversary of our local music 'zine What's Up! Magazine. Local slayers Rookery, Chris Nunn & The Movie, and Bright Weapons will be joining!
We've been writing and writing and writing the follow up to Brass Tactics and are going to be prepared to lay everything out for everyone this year. Next month we head down to Los Angeles and into the studio with producer Ross Robinson (Slipknot, Glassjaw, Blood Brothers, KoRn, At The Drive In) and we're super excited to track and share everything we've been working so hard on. It's gonna be dope!
