Listen to Riverdogs’ New Song ‘Welcome to the New Disaster’

Riverdogs are nudging fans closer to the arrival of their long-awaited new California LP with the release of the set’s latest single, “Welcome to the New Disaster.”

As previously reported, California is due to arrive in stores July 7, ending a long layoff between full-length collections of new material from the group. The record reunites original members Rob Lamothe, Nick Brophy and Vivian Campbell, who worked together on the band’s self-titled 1990 debut before Campbell departed the lineup and played with Lou Gramm‘s Shadow King before joining Def Leppard.

While Campbell has admitted there was a “limited budget and time frame” to produce California, he’s promised it’ll still be well worth the wait for their patient fans — and for anyone who’s in the mood for a guitar-fueled rock ‘n’ roll record. “It’s a guitar-intensive record; there’s a lot of guitar on that record,” he hinted. “Ironically, there’s probably even more guitar on that record than there is on the Last in Line album.”

“Going in to this project, my goal was to enjoy the opportunity of making music with some of my best friends, to share this incredible experience with my family … and to create something that Riverdogs fans will probably think is pretty bloody awesome,” added singer and guitarist Rob Lamothe. “Big guitars! Beautiful melodies! Words about crazy, complicated, real stuff! I feel like Nick, Viv, Marc and I all brought our ‘A-Games’ to the writing and recording sessions.”

Check out “Welcome to the New Disaster” above. California is available to pre-order.
