In anticipation of its new tour announcement the band has unveiled the video for its latest single ‘Captain Love.’ The song will start hitting radio stations nationwide June 3rd. It is taken from the band’s latest album Hot Streak. The Vicente Cordero-directed video is currently streaming online at Guitar World. The band discussed the video recently in an interview which can be seen here now.
Hot Streak has proven to be an apt title for The Winery Dogs’ new album. Ever since its release on October 2nd, 2015, the album has been on its own hot streak. It reached the top spot on Amazon’s Best Sellers/Hard Rock chart and its Pre-orders/Hard Rock chart. In comparison to the band’s 2013 debut album Hot Streak sold 30% more copies than that record. It topped out at the #2 spot on Billboard’s Top Current Alternative Albums Chart and #30 on the Top 200 Albums Chart. That is just the top of the proverbial iceberg. The numbers listed below are its other accolades from Billboard.
#5 “Top Current Hard Music”
#5 “Top Hard Music Albums”
#6 “Top Current Rock Albums”
#6 “Album Core / Genre Rock”
#15 “Top Current Physical Albums”
#16 “Top Current Albums”
