Ewan and Shamus Currie of the platinum-selling Canadian rockers the Sheepdogs released their second album, ‘Vol. 2’ on July 16.
The lead single, “Garbanzo Man” is out now. “This carefree little number was inspired by the tasteful Latin grooves of masters like Sergio Mendes and Cal Tjader,” Bros said in a statement.
Shamus continued, “Since Ewan and I have lived in Toronto, we’ve met a lot of great musicians who we’ve thought would be great to collaborate with. So we were able to bring in some horn players, a tabla player, and anyone able to do what we couldn’t do ourselves. We also called on [Sheepdogs guitarist] Jimmy Bowskill, but only had him play instruments he wouldn’t normally pick up, like fiddle and sitar. Exploration was really the name of the game.”
To celebrate the release of ‘Vol 2′, Bros has created a bitchin’ merch bundle that includes:
- An apron
- A comic book
- Vol. 2 on vinyl
- A sheet of magnets
RIght now, it’s on sale at the unbeatable price of $55 CAD. You can get yours here.
