Billy Sheehan and The Winery Dogs Announce Album and World Tour

The Winery Dogs: IIIThe mighty Billy Sheehan and the Winery Dogs have big news for 2023. They’ve just revealed a new album, III, which will be released on February 3rd. They’ll also be embarking on the “202III World Tour” starting February 15th.

The trio, completed by guitarist/vocalist Richie Kotzen and drummer Mike Portnoy, last released an album in 2015 with Hot Streak. III was recorded at Kotzen’s home studio in Southern California. A press release says the music was made “in the moment during many hours of face-to-face musical interaction.”

The Winery Dogs world tour will kick off February 15th in Greensburg, Pennsylvania, and make its way across the East Coast, Midwest, and parts of the South. Their final U.S. date is slated for April 6th in Nashville, though they’ll be heading to Brazil for three performances.

Pre-orders for III, as well as the first single, “Xanadu,” will be available starting December 9th.
