Rock supergroup and power trio The Winery Dogs  are currently recording their second album after the major success of their self-titled debut. 

The Winery Dogs was released in 2012 to much critical and commercial success, and spawned an international tour. The band lineup consists of :

  • Richie Kotzen – lead vocals, guitar, keyboards, percussion
  • Mike Portnoy – drums, percussion, backing vocals
  • Billy Sheehan – bass, bass pedal, backing vocals


In a brand new interview with Metal Wani, Portnoy said about the upcoming CD :

“We’re almost done with the new album. Richie‘s finishing up his tracks at the moment. And the album, the mixing begins [in July], so we’ll deliver the record to the label [very soon]. And the tour is already scheduled to begin at the beginning of October in America. So the plan is to have the album out in time for the tour starting in October. So that’s the plan right now. And then once it comes out, we’ll begin the tour cycle, which will likely go well through 2016, and we wanna just play as many places as we can.”

So there you go, album release by October 2015. That’s only two months away.
