Dogjaw is a young trio hailing from an obscure corner of West Virginia called Fort Ashby. Guitarist Jim, drummer Kyle, and bassist Tim grew up together in a town where punk music was considered un-cool, unlike sister-kissing, deer hunting, and getting teenagers pregnant. The three decided to start making punk music and set up a venue to book DIY shows for touring bands including Cobra Skulls, Run Forever, Dowsing, Signals Midwest, Warren Franklin, and many more. With so many bands from different scenes and sub-genres coming through the venue and influencing the local music culture, Dogjaw formed as a means of expressing their own specific musical identity. With a self-released EP and a handful of shows under their belt, they recently began work on their debut full length, "Pilot". The entire album was recorded and produced by Kenny Tompkins (The Christmas Lights, New God) in just five sessions at Red Diamond Studio in Cumberland, MD. The end result has shaken critics everywhere.*
