The Winery Dogs -- Sheehan, Kotzen, Portnoy -- Release 2nd LP

The Winery Dogs, the “supergroup” featuring bassist extraordinaire Billy Sheehan, guitarist Richie Kotzen, and drummer Mike Portnoy, burst on to the scene with a powerful debut album in 2013, and a 100-date tour to support it.

The Winery Dogs Hot Streak album comes out October 2, 2015Now the band is back with another explosive album, Hot Streak, which comes out October 2 through Loud & Proud Records, distributed by RED (a division of Sony).

“I feel we’ve taken the band to another level,” explains frontman and lead guitarist 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.”

Of the band’s new musical adventures, Billy Sheehan adds: “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. Some of them are a little different, and we definitely took chances. And you have to do that — otherwise, you don’t grow.”
