"“Wow, this is some great music!” Okay, I can certainly say more, but this is what I thought when I first visited the band’s ReverbNation profile and listened to their tunes. Each tune I heard captured me fully. I often scan through the first few seconds of a band that I’m exploring before moving to the next track. I can guarantee that I listened straight through every song on this group’s profile."

Hailing from Georgia, The Lives of the Monster Dogs know how to play some dark, gritty rock. The creepy country sounding “Cottonmouth” slithers like a snake down a desert highway to a hypnotic beat. Upon first listen, a listener may mistake this band for a country band with rock leanings, but on the track “Bullet” we see a band that has some rockabilly influences as well. The drumming work of Becky Dalke coupled with the twangy guitar of Grace Buford keeps things moving and rollin’. “Cassandra” slows things up with a spacey riff and a nice groove, recalling the alternative rock phase of the 90s. However, unlike a lot of bands these days that rip off the music of that era, Lives of the Monster Dogs borrow just enough to job listeners’ heads of an era past while at the same time offering something new. What makes this band all the more interesting is that they have yet to release an album. With the exception of a sole demo, there are no proper albums by Lives of the Monster Dogs. This gives the group time to refine their style, and considering the strong songs they have composed thus far it is fairly safe to say that by next year this band will have more than enough solid tracks for a debut record. The Lives of the Monster Dogs is a good Southern band worth checking out. It has been a while since a good rock band has come out of Georgia and Lives of the Monster Dogs delivers the goods. - -Jerel Johnson, Target Audience Magazine

Bio

The Lives of the Monster Dogs is a rock band with a southern drawl.

The Lives of the Monster Dogs took their name from a book, a modern-day Frankenstein tale written by author, Kirsten Bakis. Much like the stitching together of many different parts to make "the monster", this band's creation is rock music. Drawing from the deep well of blues and country music tradition of the south, The Lives of the Monster Dogs bring something raw and essential to life

The Lives of the Monster Dogs have worked with producer Don McCollister, owner and operator of Nickel and Dime Studios, who has been awarded multiple gold records for his talent, and with Dede Vogt, a musician/producer who has been a fixture in the music scene for more than 20 years and has done a bit of everything, from performing as a musician in the musical "Jesus Christ Superstar" to recording and producing the Indigo Girls. In 2010, The Lives of the Monster Dogs competed in a nation-wide contest sponsored by OurStage and placed in the top five, out of thousands of other bands and solo performers. The Lives of the Monster Dogs are part of regular rotation on internet radio stations, "Women of Substance Radio", "Acoustic Roundtable" on WITRR, and WomensRadio.com.
