Canadian retro-rockers The Sheepdogs have released a stunning live performance video of their new single, Scarborough Street Fight. The video is available exclusively via Classic Rock's Facebook page (opens in new tab).

The Video was shot over four nights at Lee's Palace in Toronto," say the band. "We shot the song each night on 16mm film and cut it together to the live version audio.  

"The four nights at Lee's Palace was the first weekend that Covid restrictions were lifted in Toronto to allow indoor shows. It was great to capture the energy in the room both on audio but also video. Was also amazing to capture this unreleased song and the energy in the room when we played it for people for the first time. 

"The best thing about this environment is we really fed off the crowd and jammed out on this one to really make it its own. This has really already become a fan favourite live, and is just now being released, which is something that we haven't been able to do for many years. Can't wait to get back on the road and see how it will evolve!"

The studio version of Scarborough Street Fight features on The Sheepdogs' upcoming Outta Sight album, which is released on June 3 and available to pre-order now (opens in new tab).

In February The Sheepdogs released a live album, Live At Lees, compiled from the four November shows. It's available via streaming platforms now. 

"There is a palpable energy and excitement to these performances that really jumps out the speakers," proclaimed the band. "They were our first full-capacity indoor shows in Canada’s biggest city in more than two years and you can practically hear the grins on our faces."

The Sheepdogs' latest European adventure begins tomorrow night (May 19) at the Psilocybenea in Hondarribia, Spain, and will climax at La Maroquinerie in Paris on June 18. They'll then head back across the Atlanticto begin a gruelling schedule of US and Canadian dates that already stretches into next year.
