Milwaukee's Dogs in Ecstasy announce new album, Dreams and Gripes, out this May on Thunderzone, share new track "Love & Happiness"

Milwaukee, WI power pop/nü-grunge trio Dogs in Ecstasy have dropped several cassettes and digital singles over their five year career. Now, in late spring of 2018, the core group of Willy Dintenfass (guitar/vocals), Molly Rosenblum (synth/vocals), and Tony Dixon (drums), are putting out their first slab of vinyl: the epic Dreams and Gripes. That’s the brilliant cover above, done by Jacob Ciocci (Extreme Animals, Paper Rad), and below we have, according to Willy, the “guitar-centric” lyric video for “Love & Happiness.”

If you’re a TMT all-star (like I am), you may recall that, earlier this year, we were treated to the brief, beautiful “Channing,” and last summer gave us “Rage Against the Dying of my Phone.” I’m pumped to see that both of those anthems will be collected on Gripes as well; and given the band’s stellar track record, we’re likely in for seven additional bangers, rockers, and instant-classics.

Dreams and Gripes drops May 11 on Juiceboxxx’s Thunderzone. Juiceboxxx gave us this insider pro tip: “50 copies of the record (edition of 250) come with a short publication highlighting some of the band’s writing over the years.” To sample some of that writing, head here. Unlike basically all other non-TMT writing, it is actually very much worth reading.
