During the competition, the band made appearances on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and performed at the Bonnaroo Music Festival as well The Osheaga Festival in Montreal, Quebec. The band has recently signed with Atlantic Records with a new album being produced by The Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney.

On April 1, 2012, The Sheepdogs won three Juno Awards, Rock Album of the Year, Best New Group and Single of the Year, during which the group was touring in Australia with John Fogerty and were unable to attend.
The Sheepdogs played several festivals in Summer 2012, including the Catalpa Music Festival on Randall's Island in New York City on July 28, 2012.
On September 4, 2012, The Sheepdogs released their self-titled album on Atlantic Records.
