3 HEADED DOG OPENS 2011 WITH A TOUR

In town for post-holiday rock shows to shake you out of your stupor is the Southern California-based band 3 Headed Dog. 3 Headed Dog is composed of none other than vocalist/guitarist David Aguirre (Razorback), drummer Wolf Gemora (Wolfgang) and bassist Danny Gonzalez. The trio were previously in the Philippines over the end of 2006 and early 2007 as part of Lokomotiv. The 3HD sound is classic hard rock with old-school punk rock thrown in. Shades of heavy metal and garage rock are added to the mix for good measure.

Catch them and listen to their new material‚ÄĒthis is truly a sweet treat for local rock music fans and aficionados. Special guest bands joining them throughout the tour are Kastigo, Reklamo, Hilera, AK-47 and Pandora, to name a few.

3 Headed Dog Manila Tour

Sunday, December 5th, 2010

“We’re doing it our way.” That’s what’s written the information under Record label on 3 headed dog’s facebook band profile. Haven’t heard of them? Well you should’ve, because 3 headed dog is definitely doing it their way in the music industry, and I don’t just mean the local music scene.

3 Headed Dog

Everyone is familiar with the bands Wolfgang, Razorback and Loomotiv, three of the most prominent Filipino metal bands EVER. Imagine taking one from each and putting them in one band. Well that’s exactly what happened to 3 headed dog! Wolf Gemora from Wolfgang on drums, David Aguirre from Razorback on vocals and guitars, and Danny Gonzales from Lokomotiv on bass. They’re already starting to make a name for themselves in the California music scene. Imagine that!

3 headed dog was influenced mostly by big names from the music industry, such as Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, The Ramones, The Police, Kings of Leon, to name a few, which of course explains their amazing sound.

3 Headed Dog

We can only hope for this band to grace their homeland so we can get to see them live. It’s our lucky day because I heard they’re going on a tour real soon. Is Manila included in that tour? Here are the schedules:
