Hop Along bring ‘Bark Your Head Off, Dog’ to US telly

The band’s latest album came out last year

Last week Hop Along released their latest album ‘Bark Your Head Off, Dog’ and now they’ve kicked off their 2019 by bringing the album to TV.

This weekend, the band played CBS This Morning, where they played ‘How Simple’, ‘Prior Things’ and ‘Somewhere A Judge’ for the show’s Saturday Sessions segment.

Speaking to DIY about the album last year, the band’s Frances Quinlan explained: “I feel for a long time I was of a more arrogant mind and I thought I don’t need anybody else, I can just write and be on my own. I didn’t understand my need for other people and what that really meant, what other people have to offer. I don’t know if that comes across a lot in the songs, but [I’m] getting a greater sense of that.”
