THE WINERY DOGS Releases Self Titled Debut Album In North America

July 24th, 2013
by Celtic Bob

Winery-Dogs-Album

The highly-anticipated and already critically-acclaimed self-titled debut album by THE WINERY DOGS (@TheWineryDogs) was released in North America on Loud & Proud Records.  The power trio–Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater, Avenged Sevenfold), Billy Sheehan (Mr. Big) and Richie Kotzen (Mr. Big, Poison)—self-produced THE WINERY DOGS, which was mixed by Jay Ruston (Anthrax, Stone Sour, Steel Panther).

Fans can pick up the debut on the band’s official website, iTunes, and Amazon.  The band has already released three videos from the new album, “Elevate, “Desire,” and “I’m No Angel,” which can all be seen on their official YouTube page.  “Elevate,” the album’s first single, debuted at #30 on Mediabase’s “Mainstream Rock” airplay chart last week.

To celebrate the new album, drummer Mike Portnoy invades websites across the Internet—including Musicradar.com, Revolvermag.com, Loudwire.com/Noisecreep.com, GuitarWorld.com, Drummagazine.com and ARTISTdirect.com–premiering video clips discussing new songs and THE WINERY DOGS’ new place in the music community.

THE WINERY DOGS kicked off their first-ever tour in Japan last week to sold-out crowds.   After wrapping up the successful stint in Japan, they’ll head to South America before returning to the States for their first shows on home soil starting August 3 in New York City at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill.  While they’re in the Big Apple, THE WINERY DOGS will appear on “The Artie Lange Show,” which will air Monday, August 5 at 10pm ET on DirectTV and is streamed live on the show’s website.  On Tuesday, August 6 at 7pm, the band will take part in an in-store performance and signing session at Vintage Vinyl in Fords, NJ.   For more information, visit www.vvinyl.com.

In radio news, THE WINERY DOGS will guest on the nationally syndicated radio show, “Rockline,” with host Bob Coburn on Wednesday, August 14 at 8:30pm PT/11:30pm ET.  Fans are encouraged to speak with the band that night by calling 1-800-344-ROCK (7625). The show will be streamed on Rocklineradio.com for two weeks beginning the afternoon after the live broadcast.

Even before today’s release, THE WINERY DOGS has been racking up rave reviews:

“The self-titled debut Winery Dogs album is one of the most intriguing releases of the year. The all-star trio has delivered a blistering collection of soaring tunes.” – Loudwire.com

“Mike Portnoy is a lot of people’s favorite drummer, Billy Sheehan is a lot of people’s favorite bassist, and Richie Kotzen is a lot of people’s favorite guitarist.  But as The Winery Dogs, they very well could be a lot of people’s favorite new band.  Yes, their self-titled debut album is that kind of winner.” – Musicradar.com

“…a cohesive, well-rounded classic-sounding trio with blazing songs that defy expectation.  The group’s self-titled debut is filled with straightforward rock and roll inspired by some of their favorite bands, and their music transcends any of the styles they’re best known for and melds their collective talents into a magnificent brew.” — Icon Vs. Icon

“Free-wheeling, jamming and cohesively playing on 13 equally stellar songs as if they’ve been a unit for 20 years, The Winery Dogs self-titled release should easily stand up at year’s end as one of hard rock’s top albums.  And carve a niche for years to come.” – Examiner.com

“The talents of these three artists found throughout their previous bodies of work is well known and hugely well respected, but put the three of them together in one band, and the result is nothing short of spectacular!  The Winery Dogs debut album, for me is the album of the year, and I don’t think anyone who has followed these three throughout their careers will disagree.  Do yourself a favor, buy this album and put on the second to last track ‘The Dying,’ close your eyes and listen to three masters at their craft…and then tell all your friends to buy it too!”  — Jammagazineonline.com

GREAT WHITE AND JACK RUSSELL REACH AGREEMENT OVER USE OF “GREAT WHITE” NAME

July 23rd, 2013
by EvilG

Great White and co-founding member/original lead singer Jack Russell have announced that they have entered into an agreement settling their pending litigation over the “Great White” name.

In March, 2012, Russell sued his former band-mates Mark Kendall, Michael Lardie and Audie Desbrow over their continuing use of “Great White” after Russell had taken a leave of absence from the band for medical reasons. The band countersued, and the parties have been involved in contentious litigation for the last year. After three days of closed-door mediation before U.S. Magistrate Judge Carla Woehrle, the parties reached a comprehensive agreement. While many of the terms of the agreement will remain confidential, it can be revealed that, going forward, the current Great White band will continue to use the name “Great White”‘ and Russell will perform under the name “Jack Russell’s Great White”.

Jack Russell’s GREAT WHITE has hit the high seas to embark in a two month two moth voyage across the Nation until early Fall.

Metal for a Cause – Headbangers Balls at the O2 Academy in Oxford, UK, Sunday July 21

Metal for a Cause – Headbangers Balls at the O2 Academy in Oxford, UK

While visiting Oxford, I had the chance to see the Headbangers Balls tour at the O2 Academy. It was both face-meltingly metal and heart-warmingly wonderful, as the reason for the tour was to promote awareness of testicular cancer and raise funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust. You can be sure I bought some merch to support that cause – I’m now the proud owner of a Headbangers Balls shirt that reads “I showed my balls for the cause” across the back; which in my case of course is a figurative statement. But no less metal!
