The Sherlocks have been relentlessly touring the UK and have added even more dates to their mammoth tour schedule. Last weekend saw them perform as main support to Kings Of Leon on their arena tour as well as a set at the Isle Of Wight Festival around the release of their latest single ‘Chasing Shadows’. The Sherlocks have today announced the addition of Manchester & Sheffield Academy shows this September.
The band, 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. 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 after selling out multiple venues (including Sheffield’s Foundry & Manchester’s Albert Hall) and their fanbase is going from strength to strength with their last singles ‘Will You Be There’ & ‘Was It Really Worth It?’ both reaching No.1 in the Vinyl single charts, a new generation discovering the adrenalizing rush of rock’n’roll.
The Sherlocks are Kiaran Crook (Lead vocals/Rhythm Guitar), Josh Davidson (Vocals/lead Guitar), Andy Davidson (Backing Vocals/Bass Guitar) and Brandon Crook (drums).
