DogHouse Swine / Bio

DogHouse Swine was formed in mid 2009, consisting of Ian, lead guitarist, songwriter and vocalist. B.T., former guitar player and co-founder of the east coast punk band The Wretched Ones playing bass, and Chris DeBellis on drums. After playing various club shows in the NJ/NY area, in 2010 they recorded their debut album 'Faster Side Of Normal', and released it under their own label Banned Records. Their first single "Bitch" also featured a video, directed by Dave Neabore of Dog Eat Dog fame. They continued to play shows opening for notable international bands such as Electric Frankenstein and Mucky Pup.

In 2012 the band expanded to include another member Iron Rich on bass, also formally of The Wretched Ones, thus moving B.T. back on rhythm guitar. By doing that the band's sound became beefier and more sonic, which is evident on their August 2012 release, titled 'Dogs Of War', also released under their own label. The RingMaster review(UK) writes: "DogHouse Swine has unleashed an album to stir up the heart and quell inhibitions with its punk rock passion and breath; a punk n roll treat to bring an insatiable party to each and every day. It is not anything particularly brand new to the ear but brought with an accomplished skill and unbridled musical lust which takes it above most similarly sounding contemporaries. If you want a slab of true and undiluted rock n roll/punk rock then DogHouse Swine is a band for you."

In 2013 having successfully toured in the Midwest U.S. with stops in Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois, as well as NY/NJ/PA/CT area shows, the band is poised and ready to take their act to the next level. 2014 is already promising to be a busy year as the band plans to play the Millennium Music Festival in February, and to start recording new material in March. With a new album and a new brand they will continue to expand their fan base with a new release and by doing more extensive touring.
