Ceramic Dog are the trio comprised of Marc Ribot (guitars, vocals), Shahzad Ismaily (bass, keyboards, backing vocals) and Ches Smith (drums, percussion, electronics, backing vocals). They have announced the release of a new album called Hope which will be out on June 25th via Northern Spy. We already shared “The Activist“; “They Met in The Middle” is a new excerpt.

Marc Robot explains: “There are so many ways to go nowhere. Some stay in the same place. Others go in circles.  This song is about two people who go different places and then return. Judging by the music, it would seem to be taking place in America, but it’s impossible to be certain.”
