Three-time JUNO awarding winning artists THE SHEEPDOGS’ latest self-titled album has officially attained GOLD certification in Canada. This news is on the heels that their previous LP Learn & Burn also went PLATINUM in Canada. The band’s single “I Don’t Know” was recently certified a GOLD Digital Download and the band amassed three more JUNO nods for Rock Album of the Year, Group Of The Year and Single of the Year for “The Way It Is” alongside the likes of Carly Rae Jepsen.
The band’s incredible radio success was solidified when “Feeling Good” joined “The Way It Is” as The Sheepdogs’ most recent #1 single at rock radio, making them the first Canadian act to have back-to-back chart toppers since 2010.
THE SHEEPDOGS HAVE AT IT, a feature film directed by John Barnard, had its World Premiere December, 2012 at the Whistler Film Festival closing night Gala. The Rock Documentary follows The Sheepdogs through their journey from relatively unknown, to winning the cover story of Rolling Stone Magazine to Nashville, where the band recorded their self-titled second album with producer Patrick Carney (The Black Keys). THE SHEEPDOGS HAVE AT IT will be in theatres across Canada in Spring and Summer, 2013. Watch the official trailer here: http://bit.ly/TheSheepdogsHaveAtItTrailer
The Sheepdog’s latest self-titled LP debuted at #1 on the Top 200 SoundScan Chart late last year, and the band hit the road for an extensive headlining US and cross-Canada tour in support of the release. The four-piece is getting ready to embark on a 16-date UK and EU headlining tour starting April 1, in Bristol, UK and wrapping up in Amsterdam on April 18.
