NEWS: SONIC CONCERTS PRESENTS THE SHEEPDOGS IN ATLANTIC CANADA, NOV. 20-24


One of the biggest groundswell stories in Canadian music, The Sheepdogs  continue their success with the news of their self-titled LP debuting at #1 on the Top 200 SoundScan Chart.  In celebration, the band is embarking on a Canadian tour this fall with five stops in Atlantic Canada.  Special guest is Yukon Blonde.  Dates include:

Nov. 20          Halifax, NS                Olympic Hall

The Sheepdogs are the second Canadian band to debut at #1 in 2012, alongside RUSH, and only one of six Canadian artists to hit #1 this year.

Produced by The Black Keys’ Patrick Carney and Austin Scaggs, the self-titled album has the Saskatoon-based band embracing a vast span of influences to create a distinctive collection of unabashed rock n’ roll.  The first single “The Way It Is” remains as #2 on Alternative, All Rock and Mainstream Rock.  It sits Top 5 at Active Rock, Modern Rock and on the Emerging Artists Chart.  The video, directed by comedy writers/directors/actors The Sklar Brother, features comedian Jonathan Dore and was added at MuchMusic and MusiquePlus.



Forming in 2006, The Sheepdogs have received widespread acclaim for their bold take on classic guitar rock.  They have three self-funded, independently released albums.  Their hard work, determination and unprecedented skill has earned them a fervent fan following, leading to the accumulation of various achievements and awards.  Their 2010 release, Learn & Burn, attained GOLD certification in Canada and was ultimately honoured with a trio of JUNO Awards, including New Group of the Year, Single of the Year and Rock Album of the Year.  They also achieved radio success with two Top 5 hits for the tracks “I Don’t Know” and “Who?”  Further, at the 2012 MuchMusic Video Awards, the video for “I Don’t Know” took home the award for Best Rock Video.
