After An Explosive Debut Album, THE SHERLOCKS Join Liam Gallagher On Tour!
THE SHERLOCKS HAVE BEEN ANNOUNCED AS MAIN SUPPORT FOR LIAM GALLAGHER ON HIS EUROPEAN TOUR NEXT YEAR
NEW SINGLE "WILL YOU BE THERE?" (ACOUSTIC VERSION) OUT TODAY VIA INFECTIOUS RECORDS
“4/5**** The traditional indie rock band is alive and well...The fast rising Sherlocks seem to be next in line. Their chunkily anthemic indie rock certainly thrills this audience. The Sherlocks are not going to go away.” The Guardian
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE New York, NY (November 6, 2017) – 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 2018 European tour. 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.
Says singer Kiaran Crook, “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!“
The infectious ‘Will You Be There?’ is an indie dancefloor filler. With lively drumming, powerful guitar riffs and an instantly catchy chorus, Kiaran confidently delivers relatable lyrics.
Drummer Brandon describes 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 already seen them supporting both Kings Of Leon & Richard Ashcroft on their 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.
They are currently on tour in North America, headlining venues from Canada, to New York, to Los Angeles. See below for full routing.
