Hair of the Dog Release New Single; This World Turns Due in Summer

hair of the dog

No exact release date as yet, but following up on the chat had in the early hours of 2017 with  Hair of the Dog‘s Adam Holt about the band’s next album, This World Turns, and work the Edinburgh three-piece did with James Atkinson of Gentlemans Pistols in bringing it to life, the title-track of the record has been posted as a free download. Now, the tentative issue date through Kozmik Artifactz is “summer” — in case you missed it in the headline above — so whenever it actually surfaces in the season, it’s a while off from right now, but one can hardly begrudge Hair of the Dog wanting to give listeners an early glimpse. They’ve been playing the song live for a time too, so it seems all the more reasonable they’d be eager to get the finished version out to the public.

Free tuneage awaits:

Hair of the Dog – “This World Turns”

Returning this summer with their third studio album, “This World Turns” is Scottish riff rockers, Hair of the Dog – today releasing the title track as a FREE downloadable single!

Recorded and produced with Graeme Young of Chamber Studios (Hair of the Dog, The Siren’s Song) and mixed by James Atkinson of the Gentlemans Pistols (Nuclear Blast), This World Turns is easily the trio’s most experimental and adventurous album to date. As always, “This World Turns” snapshots the bands progression and journey through life – this time focusing on themes of maturity, responsibility and reflection.

Speaking exclusively to The Obelisk, Adam Holt said:

“This World Turns is an album of reflection, taking a pause to view the world through aged eyes. When we started HOTD, we didn’t have many responsibilities in our lives, I certainly didn’t. Now I’m engaged and due to be married later this year, Iain is also now married and Jon has had two awesome kids – making me a pretty cool uncle! These things naturally cause you to stop, reflect and re-access your life. I always write from a personal point of view, every song acts as diary entry for me, so you can see and hopefully identify with a lot of these themes within “This world Turns”.

On the sound of “This World Turns”:

“Musically our sound has also matured. At the core we retain the HOTD sound that our fans have come to know, but we set out to create a record that truly showcases where we are NOW as a band; as well as push us forward in terms of where we are going.”

On working with James Atkinson:

“One of the biggest changes to our sound, was enlisting the skills of James Atkinson (Gentlemans Pistols). This was the first time we have ever worked with anyone other than Graeme, but it felt right to bring in some fresh ears and experiment. I had seen the Gentlemans Pistols play whilst we were over playing Roadburn 2016, and when I found out James had his own studio, I was extremely keen to get him on board with “This World Turns”. I am so glad I went with my gut because the finished record is beyond what I had imagined”

This World Turns will be released on digital, CD and Vinyl via Kozmik Artifactz this summer.
