Rock supergroup The Winery Dogs, Richie Kotzen, Mike Portnoy, and Billy Sheehan, have announced their first new album in seven years and a tour early next year to support the record.
The band will be releasing their third album, entitled "III," on February 3, 2023 on the band's Three Dog Music label (via Burnside Distribution/The Orchard), which was produced by the band and mixed by longtime band associate Jay Ruston.
Fans will be get their first taste of the album with the release of the lead single, "Xanadu", on December 9th, when preorders will also open for the new effort.
Portnoy said of the track, "Coming out of the gates, that's a barnburner. It's one of the fiercest tracks on the album. At the end there, you're hearing me toss my sticks - not in frustration, but very much in satisfaction of what we had just done."
