Street Dogs are an American punk rock band from Boston, MA, formed in 2002 by former Dropkick Murphys singer Mike McColgan.
To add to their more than impressive music credentials, the badges of service and honor that this band wear on their sleeves and the work ethic and dedication they embody is what makes them truly unique, and a band that people look up to, respect, and keep coming back to see over and over again. While the fury and passion, and sheer musical brilliance of the records speak for themselves, the live show is what keeps this band in a class of their own.
While guitarists and drummers have come and gone, mostly due to family (and their other band) obligations, the core of this family has remained the same, as has it's integrity and purpose. The effort put forth on a daily basis by this band, to make a difference, musically and in life in general, is profound. Whether it's being on the road for three quarters of a year virtually non-stop, or demo'ing an album three times to make sure when it reaches the ears of the masses it strikes as loud of a chord as possible, the STREET DOGS motto always rings true: "Not without a purpose, not without a fight!"
With powerful independent label Pirates Press Records backing that fight since the summer of 2012, STREET DOGS have some serious momentum behind them. Nothing can stop this band - Even their own decision to take a breather after a truly insane 2012, resulted in the writing of new music, and exciting new plans for the next chapter in this colorful story.
With two new 7" singles (6 tracks!) being released by Pirates this spring, a live DVD/LP to be released just afterwards, a slew of more NEW music hot on the heels of all that, and a bunch of Summer/Fall tour dates now on the books, the STREET DOGS ARMY has a lot to look forward to in 2013, and beyond.
