Dog Shredder released the "Brass Tactics" 12” in April through Seattle's Good To Die Records. The band will enter the studio in early 2013 to construct and capture the anticipated follow-up album. "Brass Tactics" can still be streamed in its intense entirety at Dog Shredder's bandcamp page here.
Good To Die Records has released a compilation album online for streaming and "pay-what-you-want" download. You can check out the release, which features punk, rock, and metal acts, in the player below or over at bandcamp. The label also commented:
"Good To Die is ready to get you caught up with its first digital-only compilation. Featuring tracks from all of the label's releases to date, this handy little primer is rife with furious riffage, impassioned singing, and energy to spare. This free collection wraps together tracks from prog-metal dynamos Dog Shredder, the angular, furious punk outfit Deadkill, and the titans of sci-fi power rock Sandrider.
"This compilation also boasts a pair of exclusives. You can grab your first taste of Portland's queerest rockers Gaytheist, via 'Condemn The Condemners,' a cheeky politically minded blast from the trio's upcoming full-length Stealth Beats (out on August 21st).
"And you get your first glimpse into Good To Die's most recent signing: the sludge punkers from Portland known simply as Rabbits. A sample of the band's future Good To Die release, 'Meth Valley 99' both pays homage to the influence of Sonic Youth and gives the trio a chance to show off their love of steaming noise and throat-shredding screaming. All the goodness of Good To Die in one neat, tidy, and cost-free package? What the hell are you waiting for? Those eardrums of yours aren't going to puncture themselves." More...
Dog Shredder's "Brass Tactics" 12" is out today via Seattle's Good To Die Records. The record shows the scorching underbelly of the Bellingham, Washington-based trio at their most over three technical, caustic, unrestrained, psychotically-charged tracks that consume fifteen minutes.
To help disseminate the release of this beast upon the lands, the folks at Invisible Oranges are hosting a full stream of "Brass Tactics" at this location.
A stint of Dog Shredder live appearances throughout the Pacific Northwest are also confirmed, beginning with two record release shows next week followed by a trio of dates in early May. A more extensive West Coast tour is being devised for early June and will be announced in the coming weeks.

Washington based act Dog Shredder will be releasing a new EP entitled "Brass Tactics," and the band's publicist issued the following press release:
"Planet Earth, behold the mighty prog-strewn high-powered trio Dog Shredder. The Bellingham, Washington-based outfit’s rambunctious metallic output is about to bore its way into your head like a pissed-off electrified sixty-pound millipede on a brain-drilling mission.
"Several years of regional touring and countless performances alongside everyone from Melt Banana to Marnie Stern, Helmet to Black Cobra, and everywhere in between has amassed DOG SHREDDER a wealth of bewildered reactions from show-goers and media alike throughout the Pacific Northwest. Even Seattle’s major weekly arts paper The Stranger referred to the band’s unhinged live energy as 'downright unfuckwithable' in a show review.
"Following their self-released two-song Boss Rhino EP in 2010, DOG SHREDDER are preparing to lay waste to faces worldwide with their next invasion of aural decimation this Spring. The forthcoming Brass Tactics bears three brand new slabs of calculated chaos that captures DOG SHREDDER’s live attack. Recorded and mixed by Adam B. Pike at Portland’s Toadhouse Studio and Paul Turpin at Bellingham’s Champion Street Sound Studios, and mastered by Levi Seitz at Black Belt Mastering in Seattle, Brass Tactics will be released as a 12? EP via Seattle’s Good To Die Records this April. More...
