Way of Life
Tom Hart-vocals Karl Von Heilman III-guitars James Dean-bass Trent Anderson-drums Are you ready for this? Well that's what The Dogs Divine's first single is asking. So get ready for the bands unique blend of whiskey fueled energetic Rock n Roll. With a history filled with more ups and downs than a roller coaster ride, the band is more solid than ever. 'This album is all about making real rock available to a new generation' says vocalist Tom Hart,'I wanted it to have that dangerous element to it. I wanted the songs to be anthems, something that belongs in the nastiest Little Rock clubs all the way up to the big arenas.' Produced by Paul Crosby (Saliva) and co-produced by ChipZnuff (Enuffznuff), The album starts you out with the title track, a song that gives you a glimpse into the day to day saga of of a rock musicians 'Way of Life'. The perfect blend of old meets new is evident in the single 'Are You Ready' which features heavy guitars interwoven with thumping bass lines, a beat that automatically pulls you into the pocket and a chorus that has the listener singing along. ' I also wanted to have a tribute to all my influences growing up as a kid'.says Hart 'but be clever about it' and the song 'Heroes' does just that, with song and album titles from a cornucopia of bands all the way from AC/DC to Van Halen that all comes together to form the lyrics. The Dogs Divine toured as a opening act for L.A. Guns and Faster Pussycat in the summer of 2008 and also shared the stage with many major acts such as Five Finger Death Punch, Blackstone Cherry, Egypt Central, Drowning Pool and Non Point. 'We plan on making 2009s shows bigger and better' says bassist James Dean : It's going to be a very important year for us.' Hitting the road again in early 2009, the band again plans to bring their style of Rock to the masses and show who they really are, Dangerous, Dirty and Ugly..and by the way they think your Ugly too.
