Street Dogs
by Hellcat

Boston's Street Dogs have signed to Hellcat Records. The Mike McColgan lead act will release their fourth album this year on the Epitaph–imprint. Earlier this month the band entered a Los Angeles studio with producer Ted Hutt (Bouncing Souls, Flogging Molly) to record the follow up to 2006's Fading American Dream. McColgan commented:

I feel like this new release will sound like a battle royal wrestling match, with bands like U2, AC/DC, Thin Lizzy, The Ramones, TV On The Radio, Stiff Little Fingers, Bloc Party, Michael Franti and The Clancy Brothers being the contestants/influences… I think fans can expect a release that is powerful, at times mean, and one that shows growth musically as well… We have always said that we work for the freedom to say and play whatever we want, and on this upcoming release that ethos has never been or sounded stronger.

The band has a number of tour dates scheduled for the coming months.
