Dog is Dead, who really should have made the BBC Sound of 2012 list, are set to begin a headline tour of the UK beginning on February 18th at Norwich's Art Centre. With the release of their single 'Hand's Down' receiving both heaps of critical praise and radio airplay, the band are currently working on their debut album with the renowned David Kosten, who has previously worked with the likes of Everything Everything and Bat For Lashes.

However before 2011 draws to a close, the band are set to return home to play a massive homecoming gig at Nottingham's Rock City, before culminating in their performance at NME's NYE celebration at KOKO in London. To celebrate these gigs, along with the festive season that is Christmas, the band have released a cover of The Waitresses 'Christmas Wrapping', which you can download for free here, or watch the video below:
