The Dig

The Dig

 New York City, New York, USA

The Dig’s debut album, Electric Toys, is a mix of rock
songs alternately upbeat and moody, classic power pop infected, and dreamy, string-laced ballads. The Dig was also chosen as one of PureVolume’s Top 20 unsigned bands of 2010!


It’s been a busy past eight months for The Dig, who have spent the majority of that time on the road. Earlier this year, The Dig toured with Editors and The Antlers, Portugal. The Man and Port O’Brien, and The Joy Formidable. The band also performed at both the inaugural Truck America Festival and The Bamboozle festival this spring. In late July, the band finished a five-week tour supporting Thrice, Kevin Devine, and Bad Veins, and also opened for Dashboard Confessional on two shows in Illinois and Missouri.

The Dig’s debut album, Electric Toys, was released June 8th and is a mix of rock songs alternately upbeat and moody (“Carry Me Home,” “Two Sisters,” “She’s Going to Kill That Boy”), classic power pop-inflected (“Penitentiary,” “You’re Already Gone”), and dreamy, string-laced ballads (“For All Your Sins,” “Feel Like Somebody Else”). The album has been catching the attention of press such as Alternative Press and Relix, while multiple tracks have been featured on primetime dramas: “I Just Wanna Talk To You” on ABC’s Scoundrels; “Carry Me Home” on NBC’s Trauma; and “Look Inside” on The CW’s The Vampire Diaries. The Dig was also chosen as a ‘Artist of the Week’ in June and its debut Daytrotter session is currently available online as well.
