  • The Sheepdogs described the smell of their van to Rolling Stone as being "a combination of weed, cigarettes and old fast-food bags."

The group's latest album, "Changing Colours," came out in February 2018. The theme of color is a great title for the project, as the music takes shades from a variety of genres, making for one great palette of sound. Realistically, The Sheepdogs have been doing that for years, offering a blend of psych-rock, country, classic rock and more.
