The Dogs continue to work in studio on the follow-up to their debut album “Baptism of Fire” in Dublin. 2018 promises to be an exciting year for the band with two single releases and a brand new video production. The band are back working with producer, collaborator and sonic supremo Liam Mulvaney. Several months pre-production and recording saw Keith and Revel work on forty new songs and tracking has continued on twelve of the strongest. Early comparisons of these new tracks show the influence and the bands love of acts like REM, Teenage Fanclub and Tom Petty.
New titles are Love & Hate, Setting the Monsters Free, One of these Days, Cry Baby and Magic Note.

HOTPRESS Review of 'Mission to the Sun'
'Offering bleak, powerful and punchy rock peppered with some quasi-prog sound effects, Revolution For Dogs immediately stand out from the crowd and are in some respects reminiscent of Therapy? The more upbeat and swaggering b-side 'Vampyre Of The Soul' offers a slightly different take on their distinctive sound, but both tracks leave a very pleasant aftertaste. Keep an eye on this lot.'
Eamonn Carr (Evening Herald)
“A distinctive sound that bristles with the excitement of the best power pop”
Nessy Monaghan (Nessy Productions Music Blog)
“a no-bullshit rock album which veers from prog rock to indie stopping off at some drug-infused gems. Think strings, bells, Lucy in the Sky..and you’ll have a rough idea.”
Jackie Hayden HOTPRESS Review of 'Shadow On The City'
With 'Shadow On The City', Revolution For Dogs have chiselled as fine a slab of no-nonsense rock as I've heard in a while. They've concocted a thundering feast of guitar riffing, heart-stopping drums, passionate vocals, raw rawk and sheer excitement.
