The Winery Dogs – the supergroup featuring Richie Kotzen, Billy Sheehan and Mike Portnoy – have released a mind-melting video for their equally mesmerising new single, “Oblivion.” You can watch it below.
Originally premiering via Classic Rock, the track is lifted from the ‘Dogs new album, Hot Streak, scheduled for release via earMUSIC on the 30th of October.
“We elevated the band to the next level,” says vocalist/guitarist Kotzen. “I wasn’t nervous about it at all. There’s always that worry with a followup record when you have a first one that’s so well received, but I believed in it from day one. I knew in my heart if we made a record that wasn’t as good as the first one that we wouldn’t release it, but I know I did my best on every song. I also like the fact that there’s a commonality between the first and second records — and there’s also an evolution too, as we’ve dug a little deeper.”
“The mission of this band is to write catchy songs, and not have the musicianship overpower them,” adds drummer Portnoy. “That’s the icing on the cake — but the cake itself is always the song and the vocals. Every song on this album is memorable and catchy, and you’ll wake up whistling them all the next day.”
The Winery Dogs are currently on tour in the US with more dates expected in 2016. You can watch the video for “Oblivion” below.
