Alt-Folk band with members from Sweden, Canada, and the USA. Touring hopefully everywhere always- including 60+ shows in 13 countries in 2018. “Stings Poetic” is set to be released on April 20, 2018. The album was recorded at a shipping container studio (LKR C-Byen in Fredericia, Denmark) by Engineer / Producer Eske Aller. Having met at clown school in California, back in 2013, That Dog Was A Band Now has earned quite a reputation for putting on a show.
“That “country” thing… at least to European ears, it almost always remains an empty cliché. That is— apart from the very rare cases when musicians actually succeed in credibly translating the genre’s epic wanderlust into something new. If anybody is doing this, it’s definitely That Dog Was A Band Now. Four men from Northern America and Scandinavia who every now and then pass oceans for rehearsals, cover half continents with their tours – and, as it truly sounds, have retrieved the western frontier; it’s been found somewhere in the troubadour life, traveling from the bars of Vancouver to Copenhagen and Berlin all the way down to Rome. When the accordion pulls the horizon up close, the banjo plucks the roadhouse blues, and the vocals ask with a mischievous authenticity for sympathy with the musician’s heart, everything adds up to an almost tangible and beautifully elusive musical moment.”
