Working class punk rockers Street Dogs are preparing for the release of their sixth studio album titled “Stand For Something or Die For Nothing”, due out June 22 via Century Media.
“The dumbing down of America is a reason to write songs in 2018,” vows Mike McColgan (vocals). “The theme is wake the f*ck up and the working class needs to unite across all colors, creeds, nationalities, genders and realize that we are being pitted against each other by snake oil salesmen and autocrats.”
“Punk, to me, is people living how they want to not how they are told to,” says McColgan. ‘Stand For Something or Die For Nothing’ expresses that ideal through songs like the title track that focuses on freedom of speech and “Working Class Heroes” that focuses upon living the American dream.
The album was recorded at Woolly Mammoth Studios, Sugarland Studio, and Q Division Studio and was produced by bassist Johnny Rioux.
