The Sheepdogs Play The Lexington and announce New Album: ‘Changing Colours’

SEEN has been enjoying the old-school rock sound of quadruple Juno Award-winning Canadian quintet, The Sheepdogs, who have have announced a string of UK shows including a headline at The Lexington, London on April 11, 2018. SEEN will be in attendance, of course. The UK run, which also features dates in Manchester and Glasgow, will arrive in support of their new album ‘Changing Colours’ which is due for physical release on April 27, 2018 via Dine Alone Records (The Dandy Warhols, City & Colour). You can watch the band perform the single, ‘I’ve Got A Hole Where My Heart Should Be’ right here:

Proud purveyors of guitar-driven modern-day retro rock, The Sheepdogs have expanded their instrumentation on ‘Changing Colours’ to encompass more styles and hues, enhancing their beef-and-boogie riffs and rhythmic shuffles. Of ‘Changing Colours’, the band notes; “This album has a much wider range of sounds on it: trombone, clarinet, latin percussion, pedal steel, fiddle and banjo all make an appearance. The title ‘Changing Colours’ really lends itself to these different sounds on the record.”

The Sheepdogs have crafted a bustling back-catalogue of albums during the course of their career – including a Patrick Carney (Black Keys) produced album – notching up three no.1 singles and earning four Juno awards along the way. Following in the footsteps of Canadian rock legends including Neil Young, The Band and The Guess Who with a bold take on classic guitar rock and polished retro sound, The Sheepdogs came to prominence as the first and only unsigned band to appear on the cover of Rolling Stone, subsequently leading to a performance on Jimmy Fallon, a support tour with fans of the band, Kings of Leon, and festival dates including Coachella, Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo. Furthermore, the band have previously shared the stage with Paul Rodgers, lead vocalist of Bad Company and Free, won the approval of David Crosby and Steven Stills and performed at Petty Fest alongside The Strokes, The Black Keys and The Hold Steady.

My Furry Lady: the Art of Marion Peck at Dorothy Circus Gallery

SEEN can safely say that there is nowhere quite like Dorothy Circus Gallery in Notting Hill. It is the very antithesis of the white, clinical art gallery that abounds in the capital. From the beautiful yet disquieting pop surrealist art that is the passion of gallery director Alexandra Mazzanti, to the welcoming gallery itself complete …
