Check this out. One of our friends just passed along these excellent videos of DOZE at the Boston Fuzzstival. The videos are of Spilt Milk which was somewhere early in the set and then our closing tune Agendas. Both songs are off of our The Dirts EP. What a great night.

Ya know, its the summer, and we all get nostalgic. A friend of ours recently found this once-forgotten video, an artifact buried in time on an external hard drive, a time capsule from the past. In it is a rare treasure, a glimpse of an early DOZE show, with their old drummer, playing an old tune (Red Giant), as well as playing an early version of our newest single – “Losing Machine“!
Woah, that is exciting isn’t it? And thanks to a GoPro camera, it’s all from the chaotic perspective of our singers chest. Prepare yourself for gritty footage of Club Bohemia at the Cantab Lounge in Boston and a two song banger from early DOZE. The music starts at ~ 6:31 minutes in if you’re in a pinch for time.
And don’t forget we want to see you at The Middle East Saturday August 10th for the Boston Fuzzstival! Click the wonderful flyer below for details.

Firstly, we’d like to thank Blackbutton for having us on the July 6th show with Vending Machetes and Shoney Lamar. All these bands kill it and we were happy to share the stage and tear it up ourselves.
DOZE has huge news though. We are hyped to announce we’ll be playing the first annual Boston Fuzztival at the Middle East Downstairs on Saturday August 10th. There will be 8 bands headlined by Ghost Box Orchestra and New Highway Hymnal. Be prepared, this will be an extraordinary night of music.
Our friends at Vanyaland posted a write up for the show that includes a sampling of tunes from all the bands so check that out below! To grab tickets click HERE.
