Pennsylvania-based soaring soul-rock sextet, Dogs Run Free have recently announced the release of their debut LP To The Travelers We Might Find following a busy summer of touring. The band’s lead single “I’ll Be Gone” premiered on the taste-making “Out of the Box” program on Clear Channel’s Q104.3 in New York, slotted next to Jack White’s “High Ball Stepper” and Band Of Skulls’ “Asleep At The Wheel,” marking Dogs Run Free as a band to watch.
Glide Magazine is proud to premiere their newest track “Tied Up” (streaming below), a feel good rocker that combines southern charm but enough folk sensibility to fit easily on playlists next to The Head and the Heart and The Avett Brothers. Lead vocalist Kevin Iobst has the following to say about the track – “It was one of those nights I sat outside with my nylon string guitar and wrote a few songs. I immediately pictured it being played on a ukelele . Lyrically, It was a lot of fun to write. it’s a story about a guy trying to persuade a girl out of a bad relationship.”
With roots extending back to March of 2012, Iobst (lead vocals, guitars, harmonica), Matt Sweitzer (keys) and his cousin Jeff Hanni (lead guitar) realized their natural chemistry as Matt’s brother Mike Sweitzer (bass), Ariel Merkt (vocals, percussion) and Scott Westgate (drums) joined the band. The lineup now complete, Dogs Run Free established their warm, expansive tone.
