Street Dogs “Stand For Something Or Die For Nothing “
“STAND FOR SOMETHING OR DIE FOR NOTHING” OUT JUNE 22nd VIA CENTURY MEDIA
EAST COAST AND WEST COAST SUMMER TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED
When vocalist Mike McColgan isn’t busy working with the Boston Fire Department as a 911 dispatcher, he’s bringing joy to people by writing and performing with his punk rock outfitSTREET DOGS. The band is gearing up for the release of their anthemic sixth studio albumStand for Something or Die for Nothing on June 22, 2018 via Century Media. In addition, they’ll be doing a run of East Coast and West Coast dates this Summer.
“The dumbing down of America is a reason to write songs in 2018,” vows McColgan. “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.”
Stand for Something or Die for Nothing is a punk rock album for the new era. “Punk, to me, is people living how they want to not how they are told to,” insists McColgan. From freedom of speech (“Stand for Something or Die for Nothing”) to living The American Dream (“Working Class Heroes”) to getting back on track (“The Comeback Zone”) – Stand for Something or Die for Nothing raises political awareness and injects optimism into those who have doubts about their future and the current administration.
The album was recorded at Woolly Mammoth Studios, Sugarland Studio, and Q Division Studio with bassist Johnny Rioux in the producer’s chair, mix master Sean Cahalin at the desk, and mastering ace Jeff Lipton navigating.
STREET DOGS is Mike McColgan (vocals), Johnny Rioux (bass), Pete Sosa (drums), Lenny Lashley (guitar), and Matt Pruitt (guitar). Stand for Something or Die for Nothing will be released on June 22nd via Century Media.
