The Winery Dogs debut new song from upcoming album ‘Hot Streak’

The Winery Dogs, which consists of Richie Kotzen on lead vocals/guitar, Mike Portnoy on drums, and Billy Sheehan on bass, will be releasing their second self-produced studio album, Hot Streak, on October 2, 2015 through Loud & Proud Records via Red (a division of Sony Music Entertainment) and in the rest of the world via earMusic. A double vinyl edition of the new album is also in the works and is due out in early November 2015.

Winery Dogs group photo“I feel we’ve taken the band to another level,” explains Kotzen. “The compositions are stronger on this album. I feel more connected lyrically and musically to what I did on this record than on the last one. We’ve widened the musical scope of the band on this record and moved it forward.” Portnoy continues, “Everything on this album was more of a collaboration than on the first album. There’s just a natural chemistry. The three of us really mesh very, very well, both musically and personally. The mission of this band is to write catchy songs, and not have the musicianship overpower that.” “I’m glad we’re not playing it safe and just doing songs that automatically fit in the category of what we did on the first record,” Sheehan concludes. “Some of them are a little different, and we definitely took chances. And you have to do that — otherwise, you don’t grow.”

A few days ago, The Winery Dogs released the first song off their upcoming new album Hot Streak. The track is called “Oblivion”.
