Sheeps: Working the Machine Album Release Tour

Sheeps: Working the Machine Album Release Tour

Tour Information
Pōneke | Wellington Art Rockers Sheeps are on tour this May, in support of the release of their debut album 'Working the Machine.'

NZ Art Rock band Sheeps makes a bold debut with their record ‘Working the Machine,’ out this April through AllGood Absolute Alternative Records. Exploring the pitfalls of capitalism, the ever-tightening global technological stranglehold, the electoral illusion of choice, and the prospect of failure after lifelong endeavour, the album is a statement on the modern struggles of the working class in a brave new, damaged era.

‘Working the Machine’ sees Sheeps as champions of the 99% – the down-trodden majority, who keep the world turning, poised moments from revolt – with the band’s sound on the album reflecting this overarching churning continuum on the verge of disintegration. The album draws heavily from late ‘90s Radiohead, early A Perfect Circle, and ‘70s era Pink Floyd, in a conglomeration that stands distinctive in its own right – punching up, with the ambition to transcend the class divide and assert Sheeps as contemporaries amongst these influences.
