Philadelphia’s Hop Along are releasing a new album, Bark Your Head Off, Dog, on April 6 via Saddle Creek. It’s the band’s fourth album. Previously they have shared two songs from it, “How Simple” and “Not Abel.” Now they have shared the album’s third single, “Prior Things.” Listen below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Hop Along is Frances Quinlan (songwriter, lead vocalist, and rhythm guitarist), Tyler Long (bass), Joe Reinhart (guitar), and Mark Quinlan (drums). Bark Your Head Off, Dog was self-produced by the band and recorded at The Headroom in Philadelphia by Reinhart and Kyle Pulley. A press release describes the album as such: “Bark Your Head Off, Dog features the familiar sounds that have always made the band allergic to genre: grunge, folk, punk, and power pop all appear, with inspiration from ELO to Elvis Costello to ‘70s girl group vocal arrangements. This time around, they’ve added strings, more intricate rhythms, lush harmonies (featuring Thin Lips’ Chrissy Tashjian), along with a momentary visit with a vocoder. In more than one place, Mark Quinlan drums like he’s at a disco with Built to Spill. Bark Your Head Off, Dog is, without question, Hop Along’s most dynamic and textured record yet.”
