March 4, 2022—Sticking With It, the anticipated new album from Seattle-based seven-piece band The Dip, is out today via Dualtone Records—the band’s 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, Sticking With It is an intimate examination of the human heart. Reflecting on matters both timely and irrefutably timeless, the record captures the mood of the current moment while simultaneously offering a much-needed escape. Across its eleven tracks, Sticking With It encapsulates 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. 

Critical acclaim for Sticking With It

“features the group’s signature head-bobbing rhythms and vein-shaking guitars”
American Songwriter 

“harnesses an old-school style and pairs it with a contemporary indie-rock flair”—Guitar World 

“some of the most potent music of their careers”—The Seattle Times 

“What Silk Sonic have done with 70’s R&B and soul, The Dip do for the 50’s and 60’s versions of those genres…The Dip shine as a musical unit, showing off immaculate production and crisp arrangements that sound timeless.”—The Indy Review 

“Their vulnerability and dedication to authenticity paid off for the septet, as the result is yet another addition to their impressive catalog of music.”—Grateful Web 

Known for their electrifying performances, the band will kick off their extensive headline tour this weekend with shows at Seattle’s Showbox at the Market tonight (sold out) and tomorrow. Additional tour stops include Boston’s Paradise, New York’s Bowery Ballroom (two nights, both sold out), Washington, DC’s Black Cat, Nashville’s Brooklyn Bowl, Minneapolis’ Fine Line, Chicago’s Thalia Hall, San Francisco’s The Independent (two nights) and Los Angeles’ Lodge Room among many others. The band will also join Lake Street Dive for a series of shows this year and will perform at Bonnaroo in June. See below for the complete itinerary. Tickets can be found at 

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 EPs, 2016’s Won’t Be Coming Back and 2020’s instrumental, 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 BottleRock, Pilgrimage, Bumbershoot, Forecastle, Hinterland and more.
