In case you missed it, Merge Records announced this exciting news in October:

We are excited to welcome Austin’s A Giant Dog to Merge Records! The band recently recorded their third album with prolific producer Mike McCarthy and will release it in early 2016.

When asked how he feels about signing to Merge, singer-guitarist Andrew Cashen said, “I don’t know. I’m thinking about cutting my hair into a man bun.” Lead vocalist Sabrina Ellis proved more earnest, saying, “We are shitty people who do not deserve to be signed to Merge… But we are down.”

A Giant Dog are known for their notoriously explosive performances and should not be missed. Asked to describe their live show, the band responded: “It’s like watching Jerry Springer and then the TV explodes and suddenly the paragons of dysfunction in America are breaking apart your living room, pissing on your furniture, and making you the ham in a white trash sandwich.” We’ll see you in the front row!

Watch & share a live performance video of “Sleep When Dead” now

A Giant Dog is Sabrina Ellis (vocals), Andrew Cashen (vocals & guitar), Andy Bauer (guitar), Graham Low (bass), and Matthew Strmiska (drums).

A Giant Dog are one of many bands playing Good Vibrations II in December (“4 MORE DAYS OF PEACE LOVE AND PUNK”). Full lineup and more details below…
