The Winery Dogs releases self-titled debut album today in North America

July 23rd, 2013 by Megan Washington

The highly-anticipated and already critically-acclaimed self-titled debut album by The Winery Dogs (@TheWineryDogs) was released in North America today 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,,,, and–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.
