The Sheepdogs going vinyl to mark Record Store Day
The Sheepdogs are feeling good in vinyl.
The Saskatoon-born band has been proclaimed Record Store Day’s Champions of Canada. They’re the first Canadian recipients of the distinction, joining legends like Elton John, Jack White and Dave Grohl.
Record Store Day takes place April 21. In honour of the occasion, the Sheepdogs will release a seven-inch vinyl pressing of live versions of Nobody and I’ve Got a Hole Where My Heart Should Be, available only to Record Store Day shoppers.
The band will also release two early albums on vinyl, Big Stand and Trying to Grow. Quantities are limited.
The Sheepdogs recently released their latest album, Changing Colours. The first single, I’ve Got a Hole Where My Heart Should Be, hit No. 1 on rock radio. Previous band hits include Feeling Good, The Way It Is and How Late, How Long.
Touring the country, the Sheepdogs play their hometown show on Feb. 23 at O’Brians Event Centre.
