Trends come and go, styles fall in and out of fashion, but The Sheepdogs remain steadfast in their commitment to rock n’ roll excellence. Since their inception, the band has always sought to play the kind of music they themselves love: “Pure, simple, good-time music,” as singer/guitarist Ewan Currie puts it.
Fifth album Future Nostalgia is the middle ground between the JUNO-winning, platinum-certified Learn & Burn, and its equally successful follow-up, 2012’s The Sheepdogs. The former was recorded by Currie and the band in their hometown of Saskatoon before they were propelled to fame as the first unsigned band to grace the cover of Rolling Stone. Its follow-up, however, recorded in Nashville with producer and Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney, was a much more formal and rigid studio experience.
From their cramped Saskatchewan jam space to gold and platinum records and shows with rock icons, The Sheepdogs haven’t strayed from their goal of sharing pure, passionate rock n’ roll with anyone who’ll listen – and Future Nostalgia is packed with it.
THE SHEEPDOGS PLAY THE COURTYARD ON SATURDAY 2ND APRIL 2016. TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE HERE.
