Quadruple Juno Award-winning Canadian quintet, The Sheepdogs have today announced details of their rescheduled UK/IRE tour, alongside a string of new EU dates set to run throughout October and November, including a London headline at Borderline on November 5, 2018 (full dates below). The new dates arrive in support of the band’s critically acclaimed 2018 album, ‘Changing Colours’ (out now via Dine Alone Records) and follow spring’s sell-out run of dates.

Proud purveyors of guitar-driven modern-day retro rock, The Sheepdogs have expanded their instrumentation on ‘Changing Colours’ to encompass more styles and hues, enhancing their beef-and-boogie riffs and rhythmic shuffles. Of ‘Changing Colours’, the band notes; “This album has a much wider range of sounds on it: trombone, clarinet, latin percussion, pedal steel, fiddle and banjo all make an appearance. The title ‘Changing Colours’ really lends itself to these different sounds on the record.”

The Sheepdogs have crafted a bustling back-catalogue of albums during the course of their career – including a Patrick Carney (Black Keys) produced album – notching up three no.1 singles and earning four Juno awards along the way. Following in the footsteps of Canadian rock legends including Neil Young, The Band and The Guess Who with a bold take on classic guitar rock and polished retro sound, The Sheepdogs came to prominence as the first and only unsigned band to appear on the cover of Rolling Stone, subsequently leading to a performance on Jimmy Fallon, a support tour with fans of the band, Kings of Leon, and festival dates including the likes of Coachella, Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo. Furthermore, the band have previously shared the stage with Paul Rodgers, lead vocalist of Bad Company and Free, won the approval of David Crosby and Steven Stills and performed at Petty Fest alongside the likes of The Strokes, The Black Keys and The Hold Steady.
