Come Nov. 25 in commemoration of Record Store Day’s celebration of Black Friday, psychedelic rock outfit Dr. Dog will release a special two-song single. Featuring the songs, “Control Yourself,” and, “Warrior Man,” the single will release on 7 inch vinyl.
Coming from a self-driven attitude to do it themselves, Dr. Dog designed and photocopied the album cover and personally packaged each vinyl for the occasion.
There’s something enjoyable about being able to make this stuff or put it together, just being involved with it in that way is very satisfying, said lead guitarist Scott McMicken.
As an incentive to drive music fans to independent record stores on Nov. 25, Record Store Day branched out for the first time this year into November instead of just celebrating the third Saturday of April. In conjunction with Record Store Day’s observation of Black Friday, Dr. Dog decided on 7 inch vinyl as their record format for the single.
