THE SHEEPDOGS announce new album OUTTA SIGHT, release new video for FIND THE TRUTH AND announce new UK tour dates
THE SHEEPDOGS OUTTA SIGHT
“It’s a weird world. Everybody stuck in one place, overthinking absolutely everything. We wanted to avoid all that — just get in the room, plug in your guitar and go. So, that’s what we did,” muses singer Ewan Currie reflecting on the making of The Sheepdogs forthcoming new album titled OUTTA SIGHT.
Recorded during the pandemic in Toronto, Canada OUTTA SIGHT is the bands 7th full length album, and 10th release (counting the three Eps).
It will be released through Warner Music on June 3rd 2022.
“Themes like optimism in the face of adversity, standing tall and staying strong, knowing that better times are around the corner kept coming through when making the record and it felt really damned good to play.” continues Ewan –
If you’ve seen The Sheepdogs live, you’ll understand how that positive energy is just what is needed, and leaves you wanting more – luckily they’ll be back in Europe in a month, with extra UK dates in Autumn to bring us that good Canadian optimism (dates below).
OUTTA SIGHT is the biggest, brightest, beer-swillingest, lighters lit in the cheap seats, non-bummer COVID stadium rock record to emerge from the pandemic blues. It’s got humour, it’s got chops, and it’s performed and recorded by five brothers from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan who are grateful to get together and play for rock fans.
“Rock ‘n’ Roll is about cheering us up. Simple as that,” says Currie. “We hope our music does the same for the listeners at a time where things still can feel very tough. There’s no greater truth than rock ‘n’ roll.”
THE SHEEPDOGS FIND THE TRUTH
For an extra good time, and an insight into how The Sheepdogs may take their rock ‘n’ roll seriously, but they don’t take themselves too seriously, check out the new video for the first single from OUTTA SIGHT entitled FIND THE TRUTH which premiers today (Friday 8th April)
