@THEWINERYDOGS SELF-TITLED ALBUM DEBUTS AT #5 ON BILLBOARD’S “TOP ROCK ALBUMS” CHART AND #27 ON BILLBOARD'S “TOP 200 ALBUMS” CHART.

THE WINERY DOGS (@TheWineryDogs) is sending a huge thank you to their loyal fans in North America for giving their critically-acclaimed self-titled debut album a strong debut on the Billboard charts.  Not only did it explode onto the "Top Rock Chart" at #5, it also opens on the "Top 200 Albums" chart at #27.
 
The power trio--Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater, Avenged Sevenfold), Billy Sheehan (Mr. Big) and Richie Kotzen (Mr. Big, Poison)—self-produced THE WINERY DOGS, which was released July 23 on Loud & Proud Records.  The album has been hailed as "...one of the most intriguing releases of the year" by Loudwire.com, and in a recent reader's poll on Revolver magazine's website, fans called it their "Album of the Week."
 
Success hasn't been limited to the U.S. shores.  THE WINERY DOGS recently kicked off their first-ever tour in Japan and South America to sold-out crowds wherever they played.  After one more stop in Buenos Aires on August 1, they'll head home for their first U.S. shows, starting August 3 in New York City at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill.  While they're in town, THE WINERY DOGS will appear on "The Artie Lange Show," which will air Monday, August 5 at 10pm ET on DirectTV and is streamed live on the show's website.  On Tuesday, August 6 at 7pm, the band will take part in an in-store signing session at Vintage Vinyl in Fords, NJ.   For more information, visit www.vvinyl.com.
 
Once the first leg of their U.S. trek concludes on August 8, Portnoy, Sheehan and Kotzen will take a much-deserved break before heading back overseas for their first shows in Europe throughout most of September, which will include stops in England, Germany, Spain, Italy and Portugal.  The U.S. tour will start up again on October 3 in Agoura Hills, CA at the Canyon Club.
 
Meanwhile, THE WINERY DOGS will guest on the nationally syndicated radio show, "Rockline," with host Bob Coburn on Wednesday, August 14 at 8:30pm PT/11:30pm ET.  Fans are encouraged to speak with the band that night by calling 1-800-344-ROCK (7625). The show will be streamed on Rocklineradio.com for two weeks beginning the afternoon after the live broadcast.
