Just before launching their new album, Poetry, Dehd has released the lead single “Dog Days,” which made its debut today on Zane Lowe’s Apple Radio show. Rolling Stone highlighted this track as an “exhilarating opener” in a recent in-depth profile on the band, noting its captivating chorus that makes you want to grab your friends and shout along.

The release of “Dog Days” is complemented by a music video, directed by the band’s regular collaborator Glam Hag. The video features an intricate one-shot sequence in a vintage Honky Tonk bar, brilliantly reflecting the artistic vision of frontman Jason Balla for the song.

Jason Balla shared his thoughts on the single, describing “Dog Days” as a tribute to life’s chaos and the quest for companionship. He explained, “It’s about embracing vulnerability, experiencing rejection, and the complex dance of human relationships. This song is for those navigating the tumultuous journey of love, making mistakes, and living passionately. It’s an anthem for those riding the same emotional rollercoaster.”

Following the album’s release, Dehd will embark on a busy schedule, including a major North American festival run, appearances at radio shows during the summer, and a nine-city headline tour across Europe. They will then return to North America for an extensive tour, featuring a notable performance at Brooklyn Steel in New York City and wrapping up with two nights at Thalia Hall in Chicago.
