Slaughter Beach, Dog are back with new music to announce their next tour: a string of dates from July to November that brings this Philadelphia group to the Newport Folk Festival, New York’s Webster Hall, and eventually The Fillmore Philly. “Strange Weather” is the new single, and is out via Lame-O Records now.

Songwriter Jake Ewald says “Strange Weather” is about “doing your very best to disappear from yourself,” and adds that the song was inspired by Jason Molina (Songs: Ohia), Japanese author Hiromi Kawakami, and essayist Jia Tolentino. Linking Ewald’s seemingly-scattered influences is his sharp observations in “Strange Weather,”some with intimacy (“She tiptoes to me in her sleeping clothes”) and the next with distance (“A million different people go to work.”) Singer-songwriter Erin Rae contributes sweetly soft backing vocals that match Ewald’s relaxed and warm tone that’s grown so familiar over his decade-plus career in Philly.

Listen to “Strange Weather” below. Tickets to Slaughter Beach, Dog’s show at The Fillmore on November 18th go on sale this Friday. You can get yours via the WXPN Concerts and Events page.
