Right now, we're sitting in Deaf Institute in Manchester ready for some delicious food to keep us energised for supporting Bombay Bicycle Club at the Apollo tonight. Last night of our section of the tour and its been incredible. Next week we'll be back in Nottingham and locking ourselves in a practise room until the finishing touches of this album have been completed. After that, we're doing our own brilliantly exciting headline tour during the beginning of November, before laying down the tracks in the studio in late November. So a busy few months leading up to a wonderful Christmas period are in store for us, and we couldn't be more excited.

Listening to: Currently on in the Deaf Institute is Dizzee Rascal, but mostly we've been listening to Portico Quartet, TV on the Radio's new record, Youssou N'dour, Dry the River and Bombay Bicycle Club have been performing amazingly all tour, Ghostpoet, and that one song by Givers.

Reading: Joss is currently reading Cosa Nostra by John Dickie, Trev's reading Batman: The Dark Knight Returns comic because he can't read a book without pictures and we've all taken an interest in Alan Partridges Memoirs. Classic.

Watching: Harry Enfield and Chums, Boardwalk Empire, Idiot Abroad series 1 and 2, Attack the Block is hilarious, South Park is a constant van watch and Life with David Attenborough is enjoyable to say the least.

Playing: Joss is currently obsessed with Age of Empires all over again, Football Manager, Pumpkins versus Monsters is the best app we've found in a while, Deal or No Deal pub quiz machines and of course our instruments!

Eating: Loads of fried breakfasts, falafel, Canterburys sandwiches (local deli in Nottingham), and whatever we got on riders.

Promo Info: Our single 'Hands Down' is coming out on 31st October on digital download and Vinyl, the latter of which is available from Rough Trade.  We also currently have a free acoustic EP available from our website www.dogisdead.co.uk. We're also playing our biggest ever headline show at Rock City in Nottingham on the 17th December, which is gonna be awesome fun.
