...the world still needs some Dag Nasty in it. After the band officially disbanded in 1989, there were some one-off reunion albums every few years with Dave Smalley singing, and then more recently a new 7" and tour with Shawn Brown singing. Since then, the band continues to be relatively active — with talks of getting back in the studio, and now with some shows lined up for the east coast in December.

On May 20 of 2016, Dischord released a new 2-song single by Dag Nasty. For this session, the band returned to its original lineup — guitarist Brian Baker, singer Shawn Brown, bassist Roger Marbury, and drummer Colin Sears. The songs were recorded in December of 2015 at Inner Ear Studios with Don Zientara and Ian MacKaye. These 2 songs mark the first time that this lineup has been in the studio together since October 1985, more than 30 years ago.
This December, Dag Nasty will be hitting the road once again for a few shows on the east coast (NJ, MD, NY, PA). Supporting them will be Iron Reagan and Loud Boyz.
If you haven't noticed, Daghouse.com is going through a bit of a facelift. The old Daghouse website had a TON of content, which we hope to move over to this new format at some point. In the meantime, feel free to visit the old site and poke around a bit. Or, visit the Daghouse Messageboard, where someone is always talking about something interesting (even Dag Nasty occasionally).Visit the Old Daghouse.com →
