Following the recent success of their debut album, ‘Live For The Moment’, The Sherlocks have today announced that they’ve been invited on tour to support Liam Gallagher on his European tour next year. This announcement coincides with the release of their single ‘Will You Be There?”.
Their debut album ‘Live For The Moment’ was released earlier this year 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 this year. The Sherlocks have also recently announced their
“It’s an honour to be invited by Liam Gallagher to support him on his European Tour. We’ve all grown up listening to Oasis, so it’s a big deal for us. He’s a top man to be around as well. It’s gonna be a mega tour & we’re looking forward to getting out there!“Kiaran, The Sherlocks.
The infectious ‘Will You Be There?’ is an indie dancefloor filler. With lively drumming, powerful guitar riffs and an instantly catchy chorus, singerKiaran Crook confidently delivers relatable lyrics.
Says drummer Brandon of the song; “It’s about the notion of when you’re doing well & everybody wants to know you…as opposed to when you’re going through a rough time and people jump off board and forget you. We’re asking who will be the ones still there because they truly believe in what we’re doing? ‘Will You Be There’ seemed like the title to sum the whole thing up.”
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.This year has alreadyseen them supporting both Kings Of Leon & Richard Ashcroftontheir arena tours as well as numerous festival dates. With support from the likes of Steve 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* reviewin The Guardian after their opening show in Newcastle on their September tour. After selling out multiple venues this 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.
The Sherlocks are Kiaran Crook (Lead vocals/Rhythm Guitar), Josh Davidson (Vocals/lead Guitar), Andy Davidson (Backing Vocals/Bass Guitar) and Brandon Crook (drums).
