The Sheepdogs announce U.S. tour

Over the course of a full music industry shutdown, there was one thing, and only one, that saved Saskatchewan-based band The Sheepdogs; straight-up, non-bummer, pandemic-induced rock and roll. In a few days’ time, the band will take every bit of that energy captured on their latest album, Outta Sight, to venues across the country—from Vermont to California and back. The hard-working and hard-living Canadian band present cool, vintage rock and roll without pretension. It’s urgent, rhythmic, clear, and fun. It’s a break from slick production and gazing at your navel, and proclaims the joy and jubilation of drums, bass, horns, and electric guitar.

The Sheepdogs make tunes that make you nod your head. The artistry, however, beneath the stadium riffs—the harmonies, the multiple guitar parts, the groove behind a rhythm section that hangs out together when they’re not on the clock—is battle-honed and spit-shined between vans, garages, thousands of soundchecks, and, yes, headlining shows.

The first of The Sheepdogs’ U.S. headlining tour is on September 20th at Burlington, Vermont’s legendary Higher Ground. The road dogs will be throughout the Northeast, Southeast, Texas, and the Midwest in October and November before starting their westerly jaunt in Seattle on December 3rd. A full list of tour dates can be found below or at thesheepdogs.com.

In October, their live album Live at Lee’s will be available in vinyl for the tour.
