Dolly Shine Explain How the Band Got Their Name, Play New Single Live in Exclusive Interview

Since then, bar patrons have regularly asked them, "Hey, where's Dolly at?" during sound check. Zack tells us response is generally, "Well, she's on the bus. She might be out a little later.". Well played.
In the second part of the interview, we talked about the fancy album artwork on the band's newest CD, 'Room To Breathe'. McGinn and Hall also performed their brand new single, 'Should've Known' for us in studio. Take a listen:
