The band have announced the first of their Irish tour dates – on 30th August they will play Sugar Club in Dublin, Electric Picnic’s Salty Dog stage at 8pm on 31st August and on 1st September they play First Fruits Arts Centre, Watergrasshill, Co Cork.

In the UK, Track Dogs kicked off the first of 5 UK tours this year in style at Trafalgar Square as part of the city of London’s St. Patrick’s Day celebrations. In May, they will perform for the third year running at the Rochester Sweeps Festival in Kent followed by a trip to Ibiza in April for Costa del Folk alongside Sharon Shannon.
‘Kansas City Out Groove’ features the band’s striking line-up of 4-part harmonies, acoustic guitar, ukulele and bass alongside cajón and trumpet with a bit of banjo and mandolin thrown in for good measure. The new album is a progression in their sound to a more robust Latin, ‘south-of-the-border’ & Americana feel. It was recorded in Madrid on an analog Studer A80, originally used in Abbey Road in the 1970’s on sessions for PINK FLOYD & THE BEATLES. The album was co-produced by Latin Grammy nominee Germán Gutiérrez and early reactions to the new songs include eclectic references including Manu Chao, Calexico & Juanes.
