Today, New York’s The Dig reveal their “Over You Again” with FILTER, which says: “this is one of those songs we can listen to over and over again, leaving listeners in a gorgeous daze afterwards, lost in total reflection. “ the listener into their melancholy lyrics and dreamy melody with their brand new track “Angeline”. David Baldwin, one of the two front singers, complements the mix of smooth and sultry alt rock in this first track of the new Tired Hearts EP on June 4th, which is produced by Bryce Goggin (Pavement, The Apples In Stereo, Swans, Antony & The Johnsons). The band is gearing up for a new tour this summer (see dates below).

The Dig’s sound has been developing ever since the band’s two singers Emile Mosseri and David Baldwin started making music together when they were eleven years old. After meeting California native Erick Eiser, the three songwriters have been writing tunes and playing in different bands since they were 16 years old. Anchored by sharp guitars and a woozy synth backdrop, their last record, Midnight Flowers, also produced by Bryce Goggin, came out in 2012 on Buffalo Jump Records. It recalls styles ranging from T. Rex to Brian Eno. Several of the songs off Midnight Flowers have been featured in a variety of TV/Film, including placements in Gossip Girl, Vampire Diaries and most recently a song featured in the season finale of USA’s SUITS.Following their acclaimed 2010 debut, “Electric Toys,” The Dig amassed a passionate national fan base with magnetic live performances, and have since shared the stage with bands such as Portugal, The Man, The Antlers, and The Walkmen. The band began writing new songs while on the road and between tours. “When we were writing ‘I Already Forgot Everything You Said,'” Baldwin recalls, “we had just gotten off the road and we were listening to a lot of Bob Dylan’s ‘Time Out of Mind.’ I think that influence found its way into that song particularly.” Mark Demiglio (drums) moved to New York from Texas to join the band following the recording of Midnight Flowers.

The Dig is proud to be releasing their new EP entitled Tired Hearts on June 4th, 2013 and doing a full US national headlining tour starting in early June and ending at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn on July 12th.

Listen/Download: The Dig – “I Already Forgot Everything You Said”

The Dig’s sound has been developing ever since the band’s two singers Emile Mosseri and David Baldwin started making music together when they were eleven years old.  After meeting California native Erick Eiser, the three songwriters have been writing tunes and playing in different bands since they were 16 years old. Anchored by sharp guitars, a woozy synth backdrop and airtight vocal harmonies, the new album Midnight Flowers is produced by Bryce Goggin (Pavement, The Apples In Stereo, Swans, Antony & The Johnsons) and it recalls styles ranging from T. Rex to Brian Eno to The Everly Brothers. Leading up to the release of Midnight Flowers, The Dig have pressed a limited number of cassette tapes containing the album’s first two singles, “Red Rose In The Cold Winter Ground” and “I Already Forgot Everything You Said.” 

“Even though it takes us about 15 minutes to make each individual cassette, which is done using an old boom box in the back of our van between shows, we like the idea of having the songs that we recorded using analog tape machines available on cassette.  For any of our fans that have moved on from 1995, each cassette comes with a digital download.”

Following their acclaimed 2010 debut, Electric Toys, The Dig amassed a passionate national following with magnetic live performances touring with the likes of Portugal. The Man, The Antlers, and The Walkmen. The band began writing new songs on the road and back home in New York between tours. The new songs reflect a rich sense of lyricism in “Red Rose in the Cold Winter Ground” and “Glass Horse” while thrumming with a charged pop sensibility in “All Tied Up” and “Break the Silence.”  When we were writing “I Already Forgot Everything You Said,” guitarist and vocalist David Baldwin recalls, “We had just gotten off the road with The Antlers and we were listening to a lot of Bob Dylan’s Time Out of Mind.  I think those influences found their way into that song particularly. But really the songs on this album are personal.”

“Although seemingly somber on the surface, the track’s jarring bassline and random, punctuating drums make for a dynamic, albeit reserved moment of great rock and roll transcendence.” – Consequence of Sound

“Without a doubt, The Dig have released one of the year’s best records” – Last.fm Discover

“This is the catchiest, most intriguing power pop band to emerge outof the no-name pile in some time.  –Pop Matters
