The Sheepdogs Release ‘Changing Colours’
Canada’s favourite bearded rockers The Sheepdogs have released their new album Changing Colours today. The Saskatechewanian’s sixth studio release was heralded by “I’ve Got a Hole Where My Heart Should Be,” which reached the top spot at rock radio to join the ranks of the bands #1 hits “Feeling Good,” “The Way It Is” and “How Late, How Long”. What’s more, The Sheepdogs are returning to the road on a 28 date tour. The dates take the band from Campbell River, BC through to Halifax, NS with stops in Victoria, BC and St. Johns, NL, making this a true coast-to-coast romp across the country. Tickets are still available for select dates, and can be purchased here.
In the lead up to the release of Changing Colours the band have been hitting the interview circuit with stops at ET Canada, The Morning Show, Tim and Sid and Entertainment City. On top of this, the band will be stopping by CBC’s q on Monday, February 5 for an interview with Tom Power where fans will get to hear songs from their pop-up show, recorded last December. The band will also be hosting a Twitter Q&A on Monday. Stop by the band’s Twitter page for all the details on this. Finally, last December, the band were invited to the YouTube Creator Space in Toronto to record a live version of “I’ve Got a Hole Where My Heart Should Be.” Fans can watch that video here.
In addition to the album release promotion, The Sheepdogs have stepped into the microbrew world, creating their own ale in conjunction with Mill Street Brewery. More details on the partnership will be unveiled soon, but the brew will be available at select shows on the tour.
