[press release] DOG SHREDDER's Brass Tactics 12" is out now via Seattle's Good To Die Records! The record shows the scorching underbelly of the Bellingham, Washington-based trio 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 HERE!
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.

"...they definitely sound like they're throwing everything into the ring, trying to turn the Fucking Champs into the Fucking Chumps." - Pitchfork
"...one of the more complex and surprising records I have heard so far this year. With a name like Dog Shredder, what’s not to love? 9/10" - American Aftermath
"...Dog Shredder has come roaring back with Brass Tactics, a three-song EP that leavens its brevity with pulverizing rock bravado. Lightning quick time changes, epic shredding (of guitars, not dogs), and prog-metal thrashing..." - Seattle Weekly
