The Dig will hit the road October 12th supporting The Henry Clay People. The tour will kick off at the Drunken Unicorn in Atlanta, GA and wrap up October 28th at the Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco, CA.
The Dig has spent a majority of the past eight months on the road. Earlier this year, they toured with Editors and The Antlers, Portugal. The Man and Port O’Brien, and The Joy Formidable. The band also performed at both the inaugural Truck America Festival and The Bamboozle festival this spring. In late July, the band finished a five-week tour supporting Thrice, Kevin Devine, and Bad Veins, and also opened for Dashboard Confessional on two shows in Illinois and Missouri. Prior to the two Dashboard shows, The Dig suffered a heartbreaking loss when their van was broken into in Chicago and most of their gear stolen (the band performed the shows with borrowed gear from Dashboard). The band was quickly able to replace their lost instruments thanks to an outpouring of support from fans.
The Dig’s debut album, Electric Toys, was released June 8th and has been catching the attention of press such as Alternative Press and Relix, while multiple tracks have been featured on primetime dramas: “I Just Wanna Talk To You” on ABC’s Scoundrels; “Carry Me Home” on NBC’s Trauma; and “Look Inside” on The CW’s The Vampire Diaries.The Dig was also chosen as a Last.fm ‘Artist of the Week‘ in June and their debut Daytrotter session is currently available online as well.
