The Skinny: In less than a week, Iron Tongue will proudly present their debut full-length The Dogs Have Barked, The Birds Have Flown to the public via Neurot Recordings. Set to hit North American store shelves this Tuesday, May 28th, The Dogs Have Barked, The Birds Have Flown harnesses over forty-five minutes of seven-piece Arkansas-based outfit Iron Tongue’s soulful, bluesy, and undeniably honest modern take on classic American rock, each track a legit tale of sorrow, regret and painful days past, as well as a harbinger of more rough days to come.

The stories were chronicled by Billy Anderson (Melvins, Sleep, Neurosis, etc) at Wolfman Studios, owned by guitarist Jason Tedford, the band completed by guitarist Mark Chiaro, bassist Andy Warr, drummer Stan James, keyboardist JR Top, vocalist Stephanie Smittle, and fronted by Rwake vocalist Chris “CT” Terry. In preparation of its release, a brand new hymn from The Dogs Have Barked, The Birds Have Flown is available to stream below. Check out the LP’s gritty fourth track “Moon Unit.”
