THE SHERLOCKS ANNOUNCE
U.S. & CANADA TOUR
"Many attempts have been made to bury Indie Rock - but The Sherlocks are proof of it's enduring appeal...Assured and always on the front foot, with driving guitar riffs and melodic lyrical hooks, they charge through their debut." - The Sun
MEDIA ALERT New York, NY (September 12, 2017) – The Sherlocks have announced a U.S. & Canadian tour for 2017 and 2018, including dates in Montreal, New York & Los Angeles. Their debut album Live For The Moment was released Friday, August 18 to fantastic critical reviews and entered the UK charts at Number 6, an outstanding achievement for a debut album. To coincide with their album celebrations, The Sherlocks performed an energetic set the same weekend at Leeds & Reading festivals to thousands of fans.
Sheffield four-piece The Sherlocks were 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 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 singles "Will You Be There" & "Was It Really Worth It?" both reaching Number 1 in the Vinyl single charts, a new generation discovering the adrenalizing rush of rock n’ roll.
