Long known for their must-see live shows, Dr. Dog have lately been rather quiet on the touring side of things. Asked if they were getting a little weary of being on the road, front man Toby Leaman laughs, “I’ve never been busier in my life; I can’t wait till we’re out on tour and just playing shows”.

After releasing a live album at the top of 2015, Dr. Dog immediately began an intense collaboration with The Pig Iron Theatre Company, setting out to present their legendary (though still unreleased) 1999 album, The Psychedelic Swamp, in theatrical form. With a cast of 30 and an oversized production budget, the performances amazed both rock fans and theater-goers alike, the Philadelphia Inquirer’s pop critic called it “Ingenious” and “Full of heart and soul.” The band is currently in the studio where they will remain for the rest of the year before spending the first half of 2016 on the road.
