Since their inception, the band has always sought to play the kind of music they themselves love: "Pure, simple, good-time music," as singer/guitarist Ewan Currie puts it. It's no surprise, then, that the band's fifth LP, Future Nostalgia, is firmly rooted in the rock tradition that listeners have come to expect from the boys.
Future Nostalgia is the middle ground between the JUNO-winning, platinum-certified Learn & Burn, which spawned the rock radio staple "I Don't Know," and its equally successful follow-up, 2012's The Sheepdogs, featuring the instantly-recognizable, Gold-certified singles "Feeling Good" and "The Way It Is" (recorded in Nashville with producer and Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney).
Now, The Sheepdogs are eager to embark on the next leg of their journey, which will involve many miles logged and stages played. "I'm excited for people to hear the album, because it's a labour of love," Currie says proudly. "Now, it's just about getting it out there and getting people into it."
