Black Dog Go Further
Trio ready new release.
Glowing from the success of 2008's 'Radio Scarecrow', The Black Dog are preparing to release a follow-up studio album, entitled 'Further Vexations', in April.
In fitting with the current climate, the album deals with serious topics: according to the band, "behind the album is a dark cynicism of the Orwellian practices being carried out by the Government and the passivity of the general public at large to let this happen." Band member Martin Dust explains, “Our main concern was and still is the amount of personal freedoms being surrendered under the banner of 'for your own safety' – CCTV, Biometrics and the World Wide Databases being the latest inventions to save us for ourselves. What is it going to take for people to wake up? How much further can the people that we’ve put into power go before something finally snaps? We've had enough now!”
The band are promising a more dancefloor-orientated sound. “It was these feelings coupled with visiting many different cities, playing lots of clubs and festivals, that has resulted in a pick up in pace and aggression reflexed in the tracks on Further Vexations - these are our Vexations reflecting back."
The record is out on Soma on April 9.
