Dr Dog Issuing Free Handmade EP

Park the Van Records and Dr. Dog are proud to offer 1000 very special handmade CDs of their upcoming EP, “Takers And Leavers” before the official street date of September 12th. Dr. Dog hand-made 1000 original one of a kind CD covers using exacto-knives, paint, stickers, old photos, ink pens, books, markers and other parts.

“Takers And Leavers” will contain 4 exclusive EP tracks and two songs – “Ain’t It Strange” & “Goner” – from the band’s upcoming fourth full-length album, still untitled, slated for a February 2007 release.

Both “Takers And Leavers” and the upcoming LP, follow up the critically acclaimed “Easy Beat.” Like “Easy Beat,” both releases maintain the psychedelic guitar interplay, shimmering harmonies and dynamic songwriting that captured fans and critics nationwide. Unlike their previous three releases, which were recorded on an 8 track, the band’s new songs were recorded on a 24 track. Having an opportunity to leave their basement studio in favor of a slightly larger rehearsal / warehouse space in North Philadelphia, Dr. Dog remained true to their lo-fidelity atmospherics. The band, in-between headlining dates and a European tour with Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, produced both releases

Rolling Stone, Spin, The New York Times, Alternative Press and many others agree, the band’s three part harmonies, poignant lyrics, soulful ballads and classic psychedelic rock, are simply undeniable.

Dr. Dog will hit the road beginning September 7th, co-headlining dates with The Cold War Kids before heading to Houston, TX on September 14th, to begin a tour as the main support for The Raconteurs.

Beginning August 29th, the hand made EP will be available on parkthevan.com, insound.com, ampcamp.com and at the following stores:
