Mike McColgan (Street Dogs): Upcoming album is “best and most definitive work so far”

Street Dogs are getting ready to release a new self-titled album August 31st on Hellcat Records.  Front man Mike McColgan has this to say about the release:

“We have songs about personal empowerment, personal freedom and the search for personal redemption on our record,” explains McColgan. “We have a song called “Hang Em’ High” that talks about the corruption of Bernie Madoff and a song called “Wild In Portland” that speaks of economic downturn and it’s fallout.”

“There are also songs that eulogize our fallen friends who didn’t fair too well in the game of life and songs that praise our family and our roots. And a song entitled “Up The Union” for EFCA (Employee Free Choice Act) legislation which would make it less difficult for employees to organize labor unions and lessen the chance of employer reprisal for organizing. We’ve got a Saturday night, punk rock throwdown anthem in our song “Punk Rock And Roll” and with “Rattle And Roll.” I pay homage once again to Dorchester and Dot Rats!”

“The album is self-titled because it’s collectively as a group coming forward and saying this is our best and most definitive work so far.”

The band will be touring the U.S. with Devil’s Brigade, Flatfoot 56, Continental and  Sick Of It All. You can check the full tour dates on their Dying Scene Shows page.
