Street Dogs selling remastered version of “In Defense Of Dorchester” to raise money for Boston bombing victims

Boston punk act Street Dogs are selling a special package to raise money for a family that was affected by the Boston bombings. The package include a remastered studio version of their song “In Defense Of Dorchester,” a live version of the song from their upcoming live album and a t-shirt. Here’s what the band had to say:

“On April 15th, the Richard family was watching the Boston Marathon when bombs exploded nearby. Their young son Martin was killed. His younger sister and his mother remain seriously injured. Many people (like ourselves) asked how we could help the Richards. The Richard Family Fund has been set up to provide an avenue of assistance by friends at St. Mark’s Area Main Street and the Center for Civic Media. We are offering up a re-mastered version of our song “In Defense Of Dorchester” to the fund; a re-mastered studio version, a great LIVE version (& video) from our upcoming (live) record, and an “In Defense Of Dorchester” T-shirt too. All proceeds will go to the Richard Family Fund. The STREET DOGS stand behind the Richard family – and sincerely hope you will consider contributing.: Respectfully Submitted, Mike McColgan /// Street Dogs.”

Interview: Mike McColgan talks return of the Street Dogs, news on FM359, and much more

“We tried to take a break, but we just had too much on our plate…”

And with that, the yearlong break that we were told to expect from Street Dogs came to a close. News of the band’s return initially broke last week with the announcement of a European tour set to kick off in July. As it turns out, 2013 is shaping up to be a pretty busy year for Street Dogs after all…

We caught up with the band’s frontman and co-founder, Mike McColgan, to chat about this year’s plans for new material, a new US tour, and what’ll now happen with the FM359 side project featuring fellow Street Dog Johnny Rioux and current Continental leader (and fellow former Dropkick Murphy) Rick Barton. Perhaps nothing sums up the state of Street Dogs in 2013 better than the fact that, in McColgan’s words, “life’s good for Street Dogs and Street Dogs are grateful.”  Click here to check out our whole exchange.

The “Breaking The Break” tour kicks off July 26th in Essen, Germany, and wraps up (at least for now) on August 17th in Munich. Click here for the full rundown.

For those of you bummed out by the announcement that Boston punk act Street Dogs would be going on hiatus for 2013, this news will surely brighten your spirits.  It certainly did mine.

According to a recent update on Facebook it looks like Street Dogs will be periodically releasing a set of new 7″ singles throughout the year containing 3 or 4 songs each.  They will be released via Pirates Press records and be available on vinyl and mp3 on iTunes, Google Play etc.

As if that wasn’t enough good news, the band will also be heading into the studio to record a new album this Summer, which they hope to release in October.  They’re also hinting at a Winter tour.  Booyah!
