The Bathtub Dogs, hailing from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln, are a group with an incredibly rich history that belies their young age. Not even ten years old, the Bathtub Dogs are already polished performers both on stage and in the studio.
It has been awhile, though, since this up-and-coming group has released a recording. But now, the wait is over, since they have just made their version of Neon Trees’ “Animal” available for digital download through A Cappella Records!
“Animal” embodies the energy the Bathtub Dogs hope to infuse into every performance. Topped with a particularly impressive solo, the song is fleshed out by a lively group executing a full arrangement that does great justice to the original song’s break-neck movement. “Animal” was released by Neon Trees barely one year ago, but experienced a great push in popularity due to the amount of scholastic a cappella groups that chose to take on the pop tune. The version released on iTunes by the Bathtub Dogs stands up wonderfully to any other version available.
Founded in 2002 by Scott Wilson and Aaron Hurlbut, these Midwestern charmers emphasize fun and humor in their performances, valuing those principles on the same level as musical excellence. Prior to “Animal,” the Bathtub Dogs had released three other albums, their most recent put out in 2008. The group has also competed in the International Championship of Collegiate Acappella – and advanced to the semifinals – multiple times in their short tenure, while also garnering numerous awards.
