April 26, 2024 - Nashville, TN - Only a few years ago, songwriter Benjamin Tod, along with his wife and bandmate Ashley Mae, thought that their Lost Dog Street Band had run its foreseeable course. They closed up shop and Tod focused his efforts on recording solo music, but old loves linger and eventually find a way. “I thought I was done with Lost Dog, but after recording my solo album, I looked over all the songs that I had ready for a new record,” remembers Tod. “These were songs for my band. I had to admit to myself that I wasn’t done with Lost Dog.” Today, Lost Dog Street Band released a brand new full-length album, Survived, on Thirty Tigers, much to the delight of the group’s legion of dedicated fans.

The new, reinvigorated direction of Lost Dog Street Band began in the recording process when Tod decided to swap out their traditional recording style of overdubbing parts in favor of recording everything live. It was an experience he was introduced to during his solo album and found the process so successful that it, in part, led to his decision to revive Lost Dog. “We were able to finish the entire album in five days, and it has a remarkable energy to it,” Tod explains.

“Benjamin and I, both individually and together, have been through some professionally grinding and demoralizing personal times over the past five years,” Ashley Mae explains. “To take a step back from that over the past year and realize, ‘Wow, we held it down and withstood that, and we survived that,’ was a really good, bright, shining moment. It was the high point during a demoralizing time.” As such, Survived is a saving grace, a phoenix rising from the ashes. “This record means everything,” adds Tod. “It just feels like salvation.”
