Following the recent success of their debut album, ‘Live For The Moment’, The Sherlocks kick off 2018 by releasing an acoustic version of fan favourite ‘Chasing Shadows’ ahead of their biggest UK headline tour to date. This stripped back acoustic version showcases frontman Kiaran Crook’s vocals at their best.
Their debut album ‘Live For The Moment’ was released late 2017 to fantastic critical reviews and entered the official UK charts at #6, an outstanding achievement for a debut album and the biggest selling debut album for a band last year. The Sherlocks will also shortly be touring their
biggest UK headline tour to date before heading to Europe as main support for Liam Gallagher. Full dates for both tours are below and tickets (where not sold out) can be purchased here; http://www.thesherlocksmusic.
The Sherlocks, consisting of two sets of brothers, have been steadily building a solid live following and were the first unsigned band since Arctic Monkeys to sell out their local venue the Sheffield Leadmill. Last year saw them supporting both Kings Of Leon & Richard Ashcroft on their arena tours as well as numerous festival dates. With support from the likes ofSteve Lamacq, Annie Mac, Mistajam & Huw Stephens, this is a young band following in the great tradition of guitar groups from their area. The Sherlocks have drawn obvious comparisons from their influencers (The Jam, The Clash, Arctic Monkeys) but this is a band with unquenchable ambition intending to create their own unique sound and already captivating new audiences. The Sherlocks have been earning excellent live reviews up & down the country including a fantastic 4* review in The Guardian after their opening show in Newcastle on their September tour. After selling out multiple venues last year (including Sheffield’s Foundry, Manchester Academy and London's Heaven) and wowing audiences with their live show, their fanbase is going from strength to strength. A recent article in The Spectator discussed the bands recent album success regarding their lack of media attention;“….real bands with real fans that become successful without the help of London media, who resent their success.” as well as The Sun recently quoting; "Many attempts have been made to bury Indie Rock - but The Sherlocks are proof of its enduring appeal...Assured and always on the front foot, with driving guitar riffs and melodic lyrical hooks, they charge through their debut.”
The album was recorded at Rockfield Studios in Wales and produced by Gavin Monaghan. Full tracklisting is below and available to buy here:-https://TheSherlocks.
The Sherlocks are Kiaran Crook (Lead vocals/Rhythm Guitar), Josh Davidson (Vocals/lead Guitar), Andy Davidson (Backing Vocals/Bass Guitar) and Brandon Crook (drums).
