Winery Dogs Release 'Oblivion' Video: Winery Dogs News
"We elevated the band to the next level," says vocalist/guitarist Richie Kotzen. "I wasn't nervous about it at all. There's always that worry with a followup record when you have a first one that's so well received, but I believed in it from day one. I knew in my heart if we made a record that wasn't as good as the first one that we wouldn't release it, but I know I did my best on every song. I also like the fact that there's a commonality between the first and second records - and there's also an evolution too, as we've dug a little deeper."
"The mission of this band is to write catchy songs, and not have the musicianship overpower them," adds drummer Mike Portnoy. "That's the icing on the cake - but the cake itself is always the song and the vocals. Every song on this album is memorable and catchy, and you'll wake up whistling them all the next day."
The band are currently on tour in the US. "We've now been all over the world, and you have to put those hours in up on the boards to make things grow and evolve," says bassman Billy Sheehan. "All that adds into how well we can read each other's minds onstage, so when you get back to actually performing as a band, the songs all have a greater depth to them."
