THE WINERY DOGS Release Official Music Video For “Breakthrough”

THE WINERY DOGS released their latest video today for “Breakthrough,” which is available now on the band’s official YouTube page. It’s from their critically acclaimed and aptly named third album, III, which was released February 3 on the band’s Three Dog Music label (via Burnside Distribution/The Orchard) and is available on all digital formats. The first two videos from III, “Mad World” and “Xanadu,” were filmed in Los Angeles last November.

“We wanted to release a third video for the album and honestly, it wasn’t easy to decide,” declares RICHIE KOTZEN. “We went with our song ‘Breakthrough,’ because it’s already in the live set and is a song our fans have been talking about with us during our meet and greet sessions. Particularly the lyrics and the storyline, ‘Because we’re who we are, we’ll never be what we were,’ feels like it is resonating with folks. Rather than do a full-blown script video with actors, we went with a performance style video of the song. Our longtime friend and videographer, Vicente Cordero, came out to visit us on the road and we told him to ’shoot it all. Get as much footage as you can and we shall put something together.’ Here it is…we hope you dig it.”

The second paw of THE WINERY DOGS’ “202III World Tour” included sold-out shows throughout Latin America, and it concludes tonight in Monterrey, Mexico. They’ll head out for the third paw, West Coast U.S. dates, beginning May 17 in Los Angeles, CA at the Regent Theater before heading over to Europe for two runs in both the summer and fall. Ticket and VIP package info can be found on the band’s official website.
