The Sheepdogs Announce Canadian Tour In Support of Chart Topping Self-titled LP The Sheepdogs
September 18 2012

(Toronto, ON – September 18, 2012) On the heels of the announcement that their self-titled debut label LP The Sheepdogs, debuted at <strong>#1</strong> on the Top 200 SoundScan Chart, the band has announced an extensive headlining cross-Canada tour kicking off November 15. As impassioned on stage as they are on record, The Sheepdogs have spent much of their musical lifetime on the road. In addition to innumerable headline shows and festival appearances, the band has shared stages with such like-minded acts as Kings of Leon, John Fogerty, Robert Randolph & The Family Band, and Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears. Support on the Canadian tour kicking off November 15 is Kelowna’s <strong>Yukon Blonde</strong>, who has earned no shortage of acclaim for its hook-heavy brand of pop rock. However, before heading out across the country, The Sheepdogs, who just started their U.S. run, will make a couple of special appearances, including The Wolf’s 20th Anniversary Concert in Peterborough with rockers <strong>Sloan</strong> on November 1, and the Rock 95 Birthday Bash with legendary <strong>Randy Bachman</strong> in Barrie on November 3. The video for the guitar driven, blues-tinged track “The Way It Is” -- directed by comedy writers/directors/actors The Sklar Brothers, and featuring comedian Jonathan Dore -- can be viewed here: <a href = 'http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rmG1Qjs7FpE&feature=youtu.be' target = '_blank'>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rmG1Qjs7FpE&feature=youtu.be</a> The Sheepdogs’ self-titled LP is available now on Atlantic Records/Warner Music Canada..
