Punk rock veterans Street Dogs have announced the first leg of their cross-country, headlining tour that will kick off on September 11th in Houston, TX. Unleashed and on the road, the Street Dogs are touring in support of their critically acclaimed new album, State of Grace.

The Boston raised band have made a name for themselves over the years with rowdy and participatory live shows that are packed with enough fist pumping and frenzied pit action to leave fans coming back for more.

Currently performing on the main stage at this summer’s Van’s Warped Tour, Street Dogs are taking names and winning fans one city at a time with their passionate music and performances. Singer Mike McColgan, who was the original founding singer of the Dropkick Murphys and former Boston firefighter, draws on a wealth of life experiences and observations to inspire his riveting vocal performances, adding a touch of sincere urgency to the non-stop fist-a-cuffs of teeth-gnashing punk rock that the band is known for.

The Street Dogs’ fourth studio album, State of Grace, invokes a sense of camaraderie with songs about family life, hardships, war and redemption, and critics across the country are raising their pints to the album.

· “State of Grace is the most raw, hones and punk rock record The Street Dogs have ever done. Definitely a contender for best album of 2008.” – BBC Radio 1

· “With the kind of organic punk-rock edge that often eludes the Murphys, State of Grace plays like Boston’s answer to Social Distortion.” – Cleveland Scene

· “Street Dogs combines the drive of Bad Religion with Against Me’s balance of catchy, layered songwriting and critical appeal.” – Charlotte Observer

· “State of Grace goes back to the hard-bitten, world-wise punk of decades past, with fist-pumping choruses packing an immediacy that doesn’t detract from the songs’ fierce smarts.” – The Hartford Courant

· “Strident protest songs sung by-and for-a tightly knit community” – Penthouse
