Dehd by Jacob Consenstein



Just days before the release of their new album Poetry, Dehd unveils their album-opening single, the driving and catchy “Dog Days,” which premiered today via Zane Lowe’s Apple Radio show. According to Rolling Stone in a recent profile of the band that delves into the creative journey to the album, the song is the album’s “exhilarating opener” with its “grab-you-friends-and-scream chorus.”

Accompanying the single is a music video directed by frequent collaborator Glam Hag, which showcases an impressive one-take sequence set in a retro Honky Tonk, perfectly echoing frontman Jason Balla’s vision for the track. 

Speaking on “Dog Days,” Jason stated: “This song is a celebration for the messiness of life and the search for companionship. It’s about opening your heart and letting it be pummeled. It’s taking risks, receiving rejection, dealing out disappointment. It’s about being brave and sometimes making bad decisions. It seems like everyone I know is out here grasping at love and often, fucking it up, breaking hearts and having ours broken along the way. It’s just the rules of the game and I wanted to make an anthem for people on the same rollercoaster, just trying their best, losing fast and loving hard.”

Following their album release, the band will set off on a major North American festival circuit, along with radio show performances throughout the summer and a 9-stop headlining tour in Europe. They will then return to North America for an extensive headline tour, which includes a recently announced Brooklyn Steel play in New York City and concludes with two nights at Thalia Hall in their hometown of Chicago.
