Biography

Boston, United States (2002 – present)

Street Dogs is a punk rock band hailing from Boston, Massachusetts. The lead singer is Mike McColgan, former lead singer of Dropkick Murphys.

In 1998, McColgan left Dropkick Murphys, after releasing their first full-length record, Do or Die, to pursue a life-long dream of becoming a firefighter for the Boston Fire Department. Street Dogs formed in 2002 after McColgan decided he could no longer stay away from music. Their first album Savin Hill was a complete success and resulted in a supporting tour with Celtic punk band Flogging Molly. The band underwent a complete shuffle in 2004 when McColgan emotionally quit his firefighting career to continue his musical career and to record their second album Back to the World, losing fellow ex-Murphys drummer, Jeff Erna and guitarist, Rob Guidotti. To fill that gap, the band enlisted Markus Hollar on lead guitar, and expanded the range of their sound with the addition of rythmn guitarist Tobe Bean. The spot on the drums was filled by Joe Sirois, who had formerly been with The Mighty Mighty Bosstones.

Their second release, Back To The World, proved to be even more of success for the band. It was hailed critically in the US, Europe and Japan and opened the doors to touring with the notable likes of Social Distortion, Tiger Army, Bad Religion, Millencolin (in Europe), The Bouncing Souls (US And Japan) and The Briefs. The band also toured on the Vans Warped Tour in the summer of 2005 and embarked on their first headlining tours in the US and Europe.
