The Sheepdogs are living out their action movie fantasies in their latest video for Feeling Good off their 2012 self-titled disc. Using still frame photography – stop motion to shoot the video, director Matt Barnes enlisted a team of experts to recreate the band as miniature dolls who get a call during their band practice to save four beautiful women from ninjas.
Shot over eight 16 hour days, the painstaking process resulted in a creative and hilarious video that perfectly suits the upbeat track. Rolling Stone Magazine was on set for the shoot and documented the process in this in-depth look at the making of Feeling Good.
Check out a much smaller version of The Sheepdogs in their video for Feeling Good.
We were with them when they were announced as the first ever indie band to be featured on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine. From New York City to the praries, MuchMore is travelling home with The Sheepdogs to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in MuchMore Detour: The Sheepdogs in Saskatoon.
We go back to the beginning with The Sheepdogs as they take us to the site of their inaugural practice, see the venues that first heard their trademark mix of blues and rock, and meet the people that have been with them since the start. See The Sheepdogs play a sold-out show to their home crowd and find out why they’re being hailed as the second coming of Rock and Roll.
Tune into MuchMore Detour: The Sheepdogs in Saskatoon tonight at 9:30 pm ET.
The Sheepdogs might’ve jumped on everyone’s radars just last year with their Rolling Stone cover contest win, but they’re definitely poised to make many more covers soon. The Saskatoon rockers are back with a new album, following up 2010′s Learn & Burn and it’s loud and clear: these guys are soon-to-be full-fledge rock stars.
On this self-titled album, the band has successfully expanded their sound while refining their strengths. A melting pot of blues, rock, and country, The Sheepdogs are pulling in various forms of rock and carving out their own brand of modern-day rock ‘n’ roll.
At times, songs veer off into Black Keys territory, such as the stomping rhythms and guitar tones on Feeling Good, but that’s where the comparisons end. The Sheepdogs’ tracks are coloured with more variety in sound and genre as well as a strong set of harmonies to back each song, turning them into summer festival sing-alongs, circa the 1970s. And that’s where the band’s real strength is – in creating something that’s nostalgic yet new – just covering all the bases, those guys!

We can’t confirm this, but we’re going to go ahead and say (and hope) that no kids were harmed in the making of this new Sheepdogs video.
In this new clip for The Way It Is, the members of The Sheepdogs go up against a group of kids in a game of baseball. I mean, sure, they’re twice their size and way more athletic than those youngsters, but that doesn’t stop them from going up against them in what is probably the most unfair game we’ve ever seen.
Beating kids in baseball aside, this video is lots of fun and the song itself is perfect for fans of The Black Keys’ straight-up rock ‘n’ roll attitude.
Watch the video below.
Saskatoon rockers, The Sheepdogs, announced this week that they will be releasing a new self-titled album this September, and now they’ve also provided us with a single. The Way It Is is the first track from the upcoming album, which will follow up 2010′s Learn & Burn.
The track takes off where the four-piece left off with pounding riffs and a catchy melody accented by tight harmonies, all with a signature stamp of classic rock ‘n’ roll attitude. The Way It Is will surely win over fans of The Black Keys.
The Sheepdogs caught the eyes of Rolling Stone Magazine last year when they won the Choose the Cover contest. Since then, the band has blown up and has performed at countless festivals, made an appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and even swept the most recent Juno Awards winning three trophies.
The band will embark on a tour this fall in support of the new album.
