The Winery Dogs - To Release New Album

The Winery Dogs (Richie Kotzen - lead vocals/guitar, Mike Portnoy - drums, Billy Sheehan - bass) have recently announced their second appropriately titled, self-produced studio album, Hot Streak. The record is set for release on October 2nd on earMUSIC in collaboration with Loud & Proud Records. The successor to their self-titled debut will have 13 songs.

"I feel we've taken the band to another level," explains Richie 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."

Mike 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," Billy 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."
