All Dogs was founded in 2012,[2] and released their first cassette in July 2013, as their half of a split cassette with Slouch, another Ohio band.[3][4] On this cassette, All Dogs contributed 6 songs, 5 of which were originals and one of which was a cover.[3] In 2015, the band released their debut album, Kicking Every Day, on Salinas Records.[5]

Critical reception[edit]

All Dogs' debut cassette was described by Pitchfork Media as "pierced with a strong sense of yearning."[4] Liz Perry wrote in Stereogum that the six songs All Dogs included on the cassette "contain more perfect anxiousness and earnestness than some bands can get out in a whole album."[3] Laura Snapes, writing for Pitchfork, gave Kicking Every Day a rating of 7.6 out of 10, and described it as "a warm thump of encouragement from an equally grubby hand."[5] Sasha Geffen, of Consequence of Sound, gave the album a B- and said that it "roils with internal confusions and frustrations," and that it is "awfully charming for something that’s eating itself alive from the inside."[6] On April 1, 2016, lead vocalist of punk rock band Green Day posted a short clip of All Dogs' live performance on Instagram with the description "ALL DOGS!!!! great band".[7]
