Philadelphia’s Hop Along released a new album, Bark Your Head Off, Dog, back in April via Saddle Creek. It’s the band’s fourth album. Now the band have shared a video for “Somewhere a Judge.” It features footage of the band on the road and can be watched below. Also below are the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Hop Along is 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 previous press release described 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.”
