DogHouse Swine was formed in mid 2009, consisting of Ian, lead guitarist, songwriter and vocalist. B.T., former guitar player and co-founder of the east coast punk band The Wretched Ones playing bass, 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.
Following extensive gigging (including supporting bands such as Electric Frankenstein, Stigma and Mucky Pup, and a SXSW appearence) and a few line-up changes, DogHouse Swine saw their sound evolve into a more beefier and in-your-face blend, as portrayed on their 2012 follow-up release, "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."
In late 2014 the band was signed to independent label Manta Ray Records based out of Baltimore. The band continued to tour throughout the country in support of their 2015 EP "Fearless", their first release under the new label and recorded by producer J. Robbins (Jawbox, Clutch, Foo Fighters and Against Me!). Spreading their music like wildfire (their songs are licensed by Nascar, Fox Sports 1, MTV, Oxygen, E! and more) They do not seem to show any sign of slowing down, as they gear up to release brand new music in May 2018, with a new tour to follow.
