After a sold out UK Tour last September, Sheffield four-piece, The Sherlocks have been relentlessly touring the UK ahead of the release of their debut album and dates have included joining both Kings Of Leon & Richard Ashcroft as main support on their arena tours as well as numerous festival dates.
The Sherlocks are Kiaran Crook (Lead vocals/Rhythm Guitar), Josh Davidson (Vocals/Lead Guitar), Andy Davidson (Backing Vocals/Bass Guitar) and Brandon Crook (drums). They 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 are critically acclaimed and have drawn obvious comparisons from their influencers (The Jam, The Clash, Arctic Monkeys) but don’t let the comparisons fool you. Their sound is all their own and we’ve been enamored for some time now. Their latest release is no exception. Live for the Moment soars right from the beginning, it’s razor-sharp and filled with alluring guitar riffs and enticing drumming. We’ve definitely been playing it on repeat. Listen to it below.
The debut album was recorded at Rockfield Studios in Wales and produced by Gavin Monaghan. When asked what to expect from this anticipated debut from the young band, The Sherlocks promise;
“The time has finally come… What started as a hobby has incredibly turned into a career. But this is all down to our fans for investing their time into our band. The amount of people calling for this album is truly overwhelming and we know this is the right time to share it. We’ve genuinely worked so hard for this and put everything into this album, down to the very last detail. Everything about this album feels incredibly special…4 lads from the middle of nowhere. This is what makes our story so special, that the people have decided to back a real band and we will be forever grateful to them for that. Our lives have completely changed over the last few years, we started this band around 7 years ago as friends jamming a few songs out together in my dad’s garage. Over 1200 gigs later, we’re now here announcing something we will be eternally proud of. We can’t wait for you to hear it in its entirety. This one’s for you.
This journey has only just begun… LIVE FOR THE MOMENT x”
