The Social Animals, a rock quartet hailing from Duluth, Minnesota, played at DC9 on July 17, and our friend Ben Eisendrath got some cool shots of the band in action.

The band — consisting of lead vocalist Dedric Clark (vocals, rhythm guitar), Tony Petersen (backing vocals, lead guitar), Boyd Smith (drums), and Roger Whittet (backing vocals, bass) — released their debut EP, Formative Years, in 2016. The gents followed it up with a single, “Cheer Up Charlie, in November 2017.

Listen to “Cheer Up Charlie” by The Social Animals on Soundcloud:

Dedric talked to Nathan Weinbender of The Inlander recently, revealing the band will soon release their debut full-length album. Nathan explored the band’s sound in his profile.

“Listening through those songs, you can hear a lot of stylistic dabbling going on: There’s some Americana, bluesy R&B, confessional singer-songwriter sketches, straight-ahead rock. And the band’s upcoming LP, which is now in the final stages of mastering, is only going to further muddy the waters: Clark says the new songs will sound an awful lot like the Cure,” Nathan wrote.
