Dog in the Sand, Frank Black's third album with backing group the Catholics, was released by the Cooking Vinyl record label in 2001, and was produced by Nick Vincent. The album was generally met with favorable reviews. Though retaining the live-to-two-track method of recording of the previous two albums, this album found the band branching away from purely electric rock to incorporate acoustic guitar, pedal steel, and Rhodes Piano and Wurlitzer organ into the sonic template.

The album was initially released by the What Are Records? label in 2001, and was reissued by SpinART in 2003.
