The fall dates follow The Dip’s triumphant spring run, where they sold over 15,000 tickets across the almost completely sold-out tour. The performances add to a landmark year for the band, who released their acclaimed new album, Sticking With It, this past spring via Dualtone Records—their first release in partnership with the label (stream/purchase here). Produced by the band and recorded at their self-made studio in Seattle’s Central District, the record debuted at #1 on the Current R&B Albums chart as well as #2 on the New Artist Albums chart. Across its eleven tracks, Sticking With Itencapsulates the contagious energy of The Dip’s live shows and builds on their breakthrough grassroots success, which already includes over 100 million streams to-date.
In celebration of the new music, the band was recently featured on “CBS Saturday Morning” as part of their “Saturday Sessions” series, performing three songs from the record: “Crickets,” “Paddle To The Stars” and “Sleep On It.” They also performed a special four-song session earlier this summer for KEXP Public Radio. Watch the full session HERE.
Reflecting on the new album, drummer Jarred Katz shares, “It’s really important to us to catch those lightning-in-a-bottle moments when you can feel the momentum of a song taking shape…one of the main goals for the album was to create that feeling of all of us in a room together, instead of worrying too much about everything lining up perfectly,” while lead singer Tom Eddy adds, “With the lyrics I tried to evoke certain emotions that aren’t often showcased in popular music, with the hope that people will come away feeling validated or understood.”
In addition to The Dip—Eddy (vocals, guitar), Katz (drums), Brennan Carter (trumpet), Levi Gillis (tenor sax), Mark Hunter (bass), Jacob Lundgren (guitar) and Evan Smith (baritone sax)—Sticking With It also features F.A.M.E.’S. Studio Orchestra, a Macedonia-based string ensemble, and background vocals from Vanessa Bryan, Dasha Chadwick and Nic Jackson.
Since forming, The Dip has released two full-length albums, 2015’s The Dip and 2019’s The Dip Delivers, as well as two instrumental EPs, 2016’s Won’t Be Coming Back and 2020’s The Dip Plays It Cool—all of which were written, produced and released by the band themself. With these releases, The Dip continues to receive widespread attention, with KEXP Radio declaring, “one of the most exciting and joyous acts to emerge in recent years.” Moreover, Rolling Stone praised The Dip Delivers saying, “cranks out a retro song worthy of an Eldorado’s FM stereo” and No Depression proclaimed, “a heart-felt homage to the originators presented masterfully by a new generation.” Since their debut, the band has continued to tour relentlessly, performing sold-out shows across the country and garnering a dedicated fanbase as they went. In addition to numerous headline tours, The Dip has also performed at several renowned festivals such as Bonnaroo, BottleRock, Pilgrimage, Bumbershoot, Forecastle, Hinterland and more.
