News: Dog Party Announce New Album ‘Dangerous’ and Release New Single ‘Bullet in Disguise’

Sister pop punk guitar and bass duo Dog Party are over 15 years into their career, having put out their first albums when they were literally children. The sisters Lucy and Gwendolyn Giles show no signs of slowing down, as today they announced their seventh studio album Dangerous on May 17, which will be the inaugural release of the new label Sneak Dog Records, which was founded as a collaboration between the Giles sisters and Lizzie Killian of Teens in Trouble.

Coinciding with the exciting album announcement comes the release of the lead single “Bullet in Disguise” and accompanying music video.“It made sense for us to lead with ‘Bullet In Disguise’ because it showcases the true Dog Party sound—catchy riffs, bombastic drums, and emotive belting,” explains Lucy Giles.  “‘Bullet In Disguise’ also gives the listener a glimpse of the elevated production of the album! It is a nice little teaser for what’s to come!”

The single is a heavy dose of pop punk meets spaghetti western vibe, as Dog Party do what they always do best: bring pop  punk back to its most basic roots. The 1970s-style, grindhouse-inspired video, directed by Aja Pop, finds the duo getting a touch more polish in contrast to their DIY reputation. Check out the video for “Bullet in Disguise” below.

The group have a number of tour dates upcoming to support their new album, with more dates coming soon.
