Dr. Dog will release their 10th studio album Critical Equation via Thirty Tigers on April 27. The Philadelphia-based psychedelic pop act also announced a lengthy North American Tour – their first in two years – in the support of the record.

The new album follows-up 2016’s Abandoned Mansion. Featuring 10 tracks, Critical Equation was produced by Gus Seyffert, whose credits include Bedouine and Michael Kiwanuka.

“This band has been at work a long time and this record is about a concerted effort to push ourselves to grow with courage and confidence built upon our history together,” said bassist/vocalist Toby Leaman. “That ends up being a renewed testimony of love for ourselves, each other, the work we do together, and the willingness to approach something you know so well with a beginners innocence.”


The band will appear in support of the new record at the McDowell Mountain Music Festival in Phoenix on March 2, before heading out on 42-date Northern American tour that officially kicks off on April 6 at the Mercury Ballroom in Louisville, Kentucky and includes a pair of two-night stands, including the Ogden Theater in Denver on June 13 and 14, and at New York City’s Brooklyn Steel on June 19 and 20. Dr. Dog will bring their run to an end three nights later with a hometown gig at Festival Pier at Penn’s Landing.
