The Sheepdogs perform in Kelowna Dec. 18

The Sheepdogs, with special guests Yukon Blonde are scheduled to perform in Kelowna Dec. 18.

The Sheepdogs self-titled album debuted at No. 1 on the Top 200 SoundScan Chart, and the band has announced an extensive headlining cross-Canada tour.

As impassioned on stage as they are on record, The Sheepdogs have spent much of their musical lifetime on the road. In addition to innumerable headline shows and festival appearances, the band has shared stages with such like-minded acts as Kings of Leon, John Fogerty, Robert Randolph & The Family Band, and Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears.

Support on the Canadian tour leg of the tour is Kelowna’s Yukon Blonde, who has earned no shortage of acclaim for its hook-heavy brand of pop rock.

The video for the guitar-driven, blues-tinged track The Way It Is—directed by comedy writers/directors/actors The Sklar Brothers and featuring comedian Jonathan Dore—can be viewed at www.youtube.com/watch?v=rmG1Qjs7FpE&feature=youtu.be" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rmG1Qjs7FpE&feature=youtu.be

The Sheepdogs’ self-titled LP is available now on Atlantic Records/Warner Music Canada. For more news and information, please visit www.thesheepdogs.com.

The Sheepdogs and Yukon Blonde are in Kelowna Tuesday Dec. 18 at the Kelowna Community Theatre. Show starts at 8 p.m.

Tickets are available at all Ticketmaster outlets and Rogers Wireless Box Office.
