"There's just two of us left, myself and the 'Dogs," Broussard says. "We've been doing this since February, and to think that the cover is going to be in August. It's crazy! I think about it all the time, like, what if this happens for real and I'm on millions of people's coffee tables?"

"One of the funniest examples of people back home rallying around us was some guy that drives a truck, like a big semi trailer hauling lumber, made a makeshift 'Vote Sheepdogs' banner and hung it in the back of his truck," says Sheepdogs frontman Ewan Currie. "Multiple people took pictures of this and sent it to us over Twitter."
