Studio 52 is a community artist space located in the heart of Allston and is proud to support Boston’s music scene and the local artist community.
This year we call 2018 maybe a giant smoking pile of shit, but at least we’ve got a new one Street dogs record to be anticipated later this spring.
Boston punk group today announced a new album, Stand up for something or die for nothing, and it will be released on June 22 via Century Media. The 11-track LP is touted in the press releases as “a punk rock album for the new era” and a socially conscious record of “hymns for the working class”. It was recorded at Woolly Mammoth Studios, Sugarland Studio and Q Division Studio, and produced by bassist Johnny Rioux, mixed by Sean Cahalin and mastered by Jeff Lipton.
“Punk, to me, is people who live the way they want and not the way they are told to do it,” singer Mike McColgan said in the press release. He adds, “America’s dumbing down is a reason to write songs in 2018. The theme is to wake up and the working class must unite across all colors, beliefs, nationalities, genres and realize that we are opposed to each. others by snake oil sellers and autocrats.
After performing at the Sabroso Festival in Denver and Albuquerque later this month and Camp Punk in Drublic in June, Street Dogs will be touring the East Coast and West Coast this summer, and one of the first dates is a June 8 appearance at Fete Music Hall in Providence with Darkbuster and Grade 2.
