Were also making a video for the song ‘Going Down The Bar’, and working on new material for another album in summer of 2013.

The video was directed by Dave Neabore from Dog Eat Dog fame, and it features B-movie Scream queen Ruby Larocca, who has may a horror pic to her credit. Dave will also be directing our next video for ‘Goin’ Down The Bar’

Skope: What is coming up for you & where you at online?
Ian / DogHouse Swine: Like I said in the previous question, we have the midwest tour in march, a new video, and recording for a new CD. Also continuing to work with a few promoters overseas to eventually work our way into doing some international touring, and building our fanbase. Here are some places you can find us online:

Skope: What do you enjoy when you are not playing music?
Michael Wood Band: …eating?

Skope: Do you have any video or single posted online we should hear?
Michael Wood Band: Yes, the video for our single “End of the World” has been getting lots of views online:

Skope: What is coming up for you & where you at online?

All tour dates can be found on our website at www.michaelwoodband.com.   This summer is starting to look pretty exciting! We’ve applied to a bunch of festivals and are starting to get some really positive responses back. We get to go back to the Calgary Stampede this summer, we went last year to play some shows, and it was a blast.
