Saskatchewan’s own The Sheepdogs have been named as “Record Store Day’s Champions of Canada.” The honour has been bestowed on the bearded rockers as part of the lead up to 2018’s Record Store Day, which takes place on April 21, 2018. The Sheepdogs join notables Elton John (2017 RSD Champion of Great Britain), Jack White (2013 RSD Ambassador) and Dave Grohl (2015 RSD Ambassador) in celebrating independent record stores. To commemorate the announcement the band sat down with their record collections to reminisce about some of the most meaningful vinyl from their personal collections.
The Sheepdogs will be releasing an exclusive pressing of the live performances of “Nobody” and “I’ve Got a Hole Where My Heart Should Be,” both of which were recorded at the YouTube Creator Space in Toronto. This pressing will be a 7” vinyl, and will only be available to Record Store Day shoppers. The band will also be releasing the first ever vinyl pressing for their first two LPs, Big Stand and Trying to Grow.
The Sheepdogs have just released their new album Changing Colours. They are returning to the road on a coast-to-coast 28 date tour from Campbell River, BC right across to St. Johns, NL.
The Sheepdogs have been nominated for seven Juno Awards, including Rock Album of the Year nominations. For all the latest on The Sheepdogs follow the band on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or YouTube, or at thesheepdogs.com.
