Philadelphia's Hop Along is back with a third studio album, Bark Your Head Off, Dog. It’s another great leap forward for a young band that adventurously expands their sound with creative arrangements and fresh instrumental directions, weaving in mandolin, fiddle, strings, and a Rhodes piano.

Lyrically speaking, each song unfolds like an engaging short story, leaving a lingering impact and allowing the listener to process the band's tales through the prism of one's own life experiences. It’s a really great record that took the band about two years to write and record.

Hop Along — led by singer and songwriter Frances Quinlan — played a set of those new songs in Studio A and talked about the making of Bark Your Head Off, Dog for this FUV Live session.
