Official press release:

Boston, MA punk rock legends Street Dogs are excited to reveal they have signed a worldwide record deal with Century Media Records. Bassist Johnny Rioux comments:

“We are thrilled to be invited into the Century Media family. We have always appreciated bands and labels doing something different and who value and express themselves through multiple genres of music, CM are no exception and have a rich history to back it up. Rock and roll, metal, hardcore, if it has heart, soul, and conviction we always stand behind it.”

The band will celebrate their signing later today as they join the prestigious Vans Warped Tour for a string of dates featured on the SkullCandy Stage throughout July 16. Full dates can be found listed below. Tickets are available now at

Virtually everyone in the punk rock world knows who the Street Dogs are. Formed in 2002 following the departure of vocalist Mike McColgan from Dropkick Murphys, it was clear from that moment he began writing with Rioux that this would be more a force, and a family, than simply a band.

Having gone through various line-up changes over the past 15 years, Street Dogs have released five full-length albums and several EP’s, including their most recent 7″, Crooked Drunken Sons, in 2013 via Pirates Press. The band have kept an active international touring schedule over the years on the road with a who’s who of punk icons including Flogging Molly, Social Distortion, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Rancid, Bad Religion, The Pogues, Cock Sparrer, Bouncing Souls, Anti-Flag and Dropkick Murphy‘s, just to name a few!

Stay tuned for more news on Street Dogs and new music!
