The Yellow Dogs were formed in Tehran, Iran in 2006 but are now based in Brooklyn, NY.

When the band started, they did not have official approval from the the Iranian Ministry of Culture, making their performances an illegal act in that country. They appeared in director Bahman Ghobadi’s, “No One Knows About Persian Cats” a film about underground music in Tehran.

Members include Obash (vocals& rhythm guitars), Looloosh (lead guitars & synth), Koory (bass & backing vocals) and Zina (drums).

Their four-song EP “Upper Class Complexity” was featured on eMusic Selects in April 2012:

On November 11, 2013, a shooting took place in Brooklyn that involved Yellow Dogs band members. According to band manager Ali Salehezadeh, guitarist Soroush Farazmand and drummer Arash Farazmand, along with Ali Eskandarian, a musician friend who was not part of the band, were killed by another musician named Raefe Akhbar. He was not a member of the Yellow Dogs, and he had been kicked out of a different band (Free Keys) the previous year.
