winerydogsdeluxeed400 The Winery Dogs (Mike Portnoy, Billy Sheehan and Richie Kotzen) released their self-titled, self-produced and critically acclaimed debut album in North America on Loud & Proud Records today as two very special editions.

The Winery Dogs special edition is comprised of two-CDs. Disc one is the standard album and Disc two is entitled Unleashed In Japan 2013, comprised of 10 songs recorded live in Japan during their July ’13 tour, including Criminal, a track previously unavailable in the U.S., along with a 16-page booklet of live photos and lyrics. Unleashed In Japan 2013 is also available as a stand-alone digital album. Dog Treats: The Winery Dogs Deluxe Special Edition, a limited edition release, is being sold in a box resembling a box of dog treats, and includes the special edition collection of music, a DVD featuring four music videos and interview footage, demos from the original recording sessions, a “studio diary” written by Mike Portnoy, as well as some unique merchandise unavailable elsewhere. Portnoy recently gave fans a glimpse inside the packaging of the DOG TREATS on Revolver magazine’s website.

After The Winery Dogs was originally released on July 23, 2013 on Loud & Proud Records, it debuted on Billboard’s “Top Alternative Albums” chart at #3, “Top Independent Albums” chart at #4, “Top Rock Albums” chart at #5, “Top Internet Albums” at #8 and “Top 200 Albums” chart at #27.
