Brisbane hitmakers Sheppard drop their brand new single “Riding The Wave” this week along with news of their second album ‘Watching The Sky‘ which will hit stores globally on June 8. ‘Watching the Sky’ is available for preorder here.

It has been a huge journey of self-discovery for us,” said singer George Sheppard. “With the incredible success of ‘Geronimo’ it was a big lesson for us to focus on the music rather than the success. Trying to base your future on your past will lead to inevitable failure, but creating something we believe in, not what pressure tells us we should deliver has ironically been what’s gotten us back in the charts.”

Even when we were at our most successful, there was always someone trying to bring us down, but at every point there’s been many, many more supporting us and giving us this gift of being able to create music with our lives,” said Amy Sheppard. “That’s why you just need to accept yourself and what you have in the here and now —that’s really what ‘Riding The Wave’ is about. A long-term career band is going to have highs and lows, but what matters is the music. You’ve got to keep riding the wave… much like life.”
