Saskatchewan’s own rock-and-rollers, the Sheepdogs will be releasing their first label album on Sept. 4, Atlantic Records/Warner Music Canada, announced Thursday.
The band released three albums independently before the release of this album and lead vocalist, Ewan Currie, said recording the bands first label album was unique.
“I think different albums have processes and this was a different experience for us, but that’s part of what makes it interesting,” said Currie in a release. “We wanted to just go with the flow and make the album that represented where we are now.”
Patrick Carne of The Black Keys’ produced the album and Currie said he felt Carney had a positive affect on the end result.
“I think Patrick has a good sense of no bullshit,” Currie continued in the release. “A lot of making rock and roll is about cutting the fat and being a good filter. In the studio, he helped us refine the songs and found the best representation of each one possible. Plus, we wanted to be able to incorporate all different styles and I think our album runs the gamut.”
The album is available for digital pre-order on July 13, with physical pre-orders beginning July 17.
