The Sheepdogs new album and tour dates

“The Canadian rockers with distinctly Southern jam inclinations,” as they were described by The New York Times, proved the victors of last year’s Rolling Stone “Choose the Cover” contest by popular vote. Earlier this year, they scored three JUNO Awards in Canada for Single of the Year, New Group of the Year and Rock Album of the Year.


“THE SHEEPDOGS” marks the Saskatoon, Saskatchewan-based band embracing a vast span of influences to create a distinctive collection of brilliantly unabashed rock ‘n’ roll. The album is heralded by the thumping first single, “The Way It Is,”; the companion video directed by comedy writers/directors/actors The Sklar Brothers, was released last week

The Sheepdogs will celebrate their new album with their first coast to coast U.S. headline tour. The trek gets underway September 16th at the Rapids Theatre in Niagara Falls, New York, and then continues through late October.
