DogHouse Swine was formed in mid 2009 by Ian, lead guitarist and vocalist, CEO, and self-proclaimed unstoppable force of nature. B.T., former guitar player and co-founder for the Legendary punk band The Wretched Ones, and Chris DeBellis on drums. After playing various club shows in the NJ/NY area, in 2010 they recorded their debut album 'Faster Side Of Normal', and released it under their own label Banned Records. Their first single "Bitch" also featured a video, directed by Dave Neabore of Dog Eat Dog fame. They have continued to play shows opening for noteable international bands such as Electric Frankenstein, and Mucky Pup.
In 2012 the band expanded to include another member Iron Rich on bass, who was the former bassist for the The Wretched Ones, thus moving B.T. back to his natural state on rhythm guitar. By doing that the band's sound became beefier and more sonic, witch is evient on their August 2012 release, titled 'Dogs Of War'. The RingMaster review(UK) writes: "DogHouse Swine has unleashed an album to stir up the heart and quell inhibitions with its punk rock passion and breath; a punk n roll treat to bring an insatiable party to each and every day. It is not anything particularly brand new to the ear but brought with an accomplished skill and unbridled musical lust which takes it above most similarly sounding contemporaries. If you want a slab of true and undiluted rock n roll/punk rock then DogHouse Swine is a band for you."
The band continues to do NY/NJ area shows and has expanded south to Philadelphia, northeast to Connecticut, and in 2013 having successful tour stops in the midwest U.S. including Ohio, Indiana, and Chicago. 2013 promises to be a busy year, as the band will do another video produced by Dave Neabore once again, and continue to expand their fan base by doing more extensive touring, on an domestic level, as well as internationally.
