Street Dogs – Self Titled

A solid album of sing-along upbeat street punk from these Boston veterans.

Street Dogs – CD
Hellcat Records

Boston’s Street Dogs return after a two-year gap with this new self-titled album. In the past two years the band wasn’t just sitting around though as they went on a bunch of tours and of course found time to write and record this album, their second for Hellcat Records.

The band has stuck to the formula that has made them as successful as they have been in their eight year career thus far. The songs are based off of UK street punk that are anthemic and melodic. They are mostly mid-tempo songs with real hooky choruses but they do speed things up a bit here and there and bust out some speedier songs. They also slow things down on a song or two as well, with one of them being a near-ballad.

This album contains 18 songs and the band is a pretty positive and up-beat one that delivered a strong album of feel-good, energetic punk songs that are guaranteed to get your feet tapping and you’ll find yourself singing along to the songs after the first listen. If you are already a fan you’ll be happy to hear the band won’t let you down this time out and if you are looking to check the Street Dogs out for the first time, this is as good a place to start as any.

  • I think this could be there best release yet. Much better than the disappointing prior release. A lot of the songs on this release will make good live songs. I may go see them at Reggie’s on 9/25.
