We got a Christmas gift from Faux’s favourite Nottingham based indie pop band, and it comes in the form of a cover of The Waitresses classic Christmas track ‘Christmas Wrapping’.
It’s been a massive year for the boys, having toured with Bombay Bicycle Club, released a compilation EP of their self release singles, started work on their debut album with David Kosten (Everything Everything, Bat For Lashes) and released limited edition ‘Hands Down’ – their debut major label single which gained support from the likes of BBC 6 Music, XFM and Q Radio. Not to mention getting the chance to appear as themselves in Skins.
DOG IS DEAD will finish off 2011 in style with a massive hometown headline show at 1900 cap Nottingham Rock City on Saturday and will follow with a headline slot at London’s Koko for Club NME’s NYE celebration. All this before embarking on their biggest UK tour to date (details below the video).
