Lately, Nottingham five-piece Dog Is Dead have been playing every festival you could shake a stick at, including the upcoming Bestival next weekend. Keeping their momentum, the band’s releasing their one-off single 'Hands Down' this Halloween. Available as a limited edition 7” and via digital download the song, produced by David Kosten, is a dreamy baroque pop force of effortless harmonies with rollicking drums, set to a fervour reminiscent of My Morning Jacket.

You can catch them throughout the country this November. Tour dates are available via their myspace: http://www.myspace.com/dogisdeadband
