The Sheepdogs made history in August 2011 when they became the first unsigned band to appear on the cover of Rolling Stone, beating out 15 other artists in the Choose the Cover contest. The Canadian rockers were the subject of a 2012 documentary that shot before they hit big, and now they're the focus of the upcoming film Beware of the Dogs. In the trailer, watch director Jeff Kennedy follow the story of the band from its modest beginnings and construction jobs to landing Rolling Stone's cover, massive stages and throngs of fans.
Beware of the Dogs will premiere at the Nashville Film Festival on April 23rd.
