RIVERDOGS present new single 'American Dream' from the album ‘California’

riverdogs - california thumb
Original Riverdogs members Rob Lamothe (vocals, guitars), Nick Brophy (bass, vocals) and Vivian Campbell (lead guitar), plus long time drummer Marc Danzeisen, recently reunited to record their fifth album, 'California', which was released in early July and has received excellent reviews worldwide. Mixing the soulful vocals of Lamothe with the edgy guitar work of Campbell and solid rhythmic lines of Brophy and Danzeisen, 'California' marks a definitive return to the sound of their acclaimed 1990 self-titled debut. The radio-ready album opener 'American Dream' is the second single to be lifted from the record and follows 'Welcome To The New Disaster'.

"It might take time to connect, but once it does you'll be grateful you made the journey. As much soul and blues as pure rock, 'California' plays out with feeling ****"
PLANET ROCK

"What stands out on the record is the power of the songwriting. There's still plenty of juice left in their tank"
CLASSIC ROCK

"'California' has a calmness which basks in the sun and a mix which lets in the light, a lightness of touch missing in a lot of melodic rock. An album you can believe in 9/10"
POWERPLAY

"High quality bluesy rock 'n' roll in the fine classic rock tradition. It sounds fresh and vital, hitting a timeless groove that is as reassuring as it is exciting to those of us who love this shit."
FIREWORKS

"A classy comeback record that harks back to hard rock's heyday without ever sounding dated"
HRH MAG

Riverdogs formed in Los Angeles at the end of the 1980's, when flashy, glitzy hard rock ruled the day, but the group were determined to avoid clichés and adopted an original sounding blues rock style. Vivian Campbell of Sweet Savage, Dio and Whitesnake fame (at the time) was brought on board to produce the band's first demo, but was so impressed that he actually became a member and played on their debut album, with Danzeisen joining Lamothe, Brophy and Campbell to complete the line-up shortly after its release.

Although the record was well received, record label politics led to the band splitting, with Campbell joining Def Leppard and Brophy becoming a respected producer and engineer. Two records were released in 1993 with a reformed line-up ('Bone' and 'Absolutely Live'), before the group went on an extended hiatus.

The original line-up reconvened in 2003 to record new demos and play a few reunion shows, but it wasn't until 2011 that a full studio record, 'World Gone Mad', was completed and released. Now, six years on, Riverdogs have crafted 'California', an album that truly recreates the magical sounds of their early days and has been welcomed with open arms by fans and media alike.
