Today we’ve learned a little bit more about the side project that Street Dog members Mike McColgan, Johnny Rioux, and ex-Dropkick Murphys /Continental member Rick Barton, announced this past winter. The band, named FM359, posted on their Facebook page:
Rather than spit out more punk songs, these talented musicians decided to shake things up and write what many are considering revolutionary – a humanitarian (non-religious) GOSPEL Americana (punk) rock sound.
The guys recorded their first album with Pete Sosa, Hugh Morrison, Halston Luna, and David Schafer several months ago. FM359 will be playing their first show as part of the Pirates Press Records 9 Year Anniversary Party at Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco.
