Latest EP

Drop That Needle

Not content to be remembered for their old classics, The Dogmatics are well on their way to authoring a whole slew of new ones. This band honors the past but is not stuck in it.

Faster And Louder

Skybar Rising, WMFO

The recording is sharp, the beat is urgent, the guitar solos are restrained and hit their mark. The Dogmatics have the ability to capture a time gone by with a song that makes your feet move now.

They would play occasional shows over the years but returned with a vengence in 2018 signing with RumBar Records. They have been on a roll ever since releasing a series of great EP's garnering radio play and renewed fan support..."

“This was the track I was most excited to hear, 
and it does not disappoint!

You can feel Paul’s spirit in this recording, and his lyrics are truly chilling in the wake of what’s been happening to our environment in recent decades.”

The Dogmatics - Think Twice

Think Twice is unlike anything you’ve ever heard from The Dogmatics before. This folk tune is a collaboration with James Young (from Peter O’ Halloran & The Hired Men), who sings lead vocals and plays mandolin. I hope The Dogmatics do more songs like this in the future!”

– Lord Rutledge, Faster and Louder
