The Sherlocks Announce New Album People Like Me

Bolton upon Dearne-hailing outfit The Sherlocks have announced the 11th August  release of their upcoming fourth album People Like Me & You. It’s the latest set from the indie/alt-rock quartet after three acclaimed albums which include their 2017 debut Live For The Moment and last year’s World I Understand – both of which hit the UK Top 10. They’ve also established a fiery live reputation on the back of sold-out headline shows, notably Manchester’s O2 Ritz and London’s Electric Ballroom, hitting arenas as guests to Liam Gallagher, Kings of Leon and Kaiser Chiefs, storming the main stage at Reading and Leeds festivals, and even receiving the kind of reception usually saved for hometown heroes at Mad Cool in Madrid.

The Sherlocks

The Sherlocks

Sirens is a steadfast statement-of-intent from The Sherlocks in which they’ve elevated every aspect of their game. Crushing the boundaries between indie-rock accessibility and post-punk attitude with a monstrously visceral new attack, it sees The Sherlocks simultaneously going darker, grittier and hookier than ever before. A squalling burst of instrumental chaos and a searing guitar solo extends its maximal intensity before one more chorus leaves it lingering in the mind for days to come. It’s unquestionably The Sherlocks, but not as you’ve ever heard them before.  Vocalist / guitarist Kiaran Crook says, “Sirens is an all-out banger, but what I love about this tune is how edgy it is for a single. It just felt like the perfect one to come back with and kick the front door off. This tune just carries the energy along with tonnes of confidence to make people prick their ears up and be reminded that this band ain’t going anywhere!” Sirens was written by Crook and produced by Al Groves (Bring Me The HorizonThe Reytons). The band – completed by Kiaran’s brother and co-founder Brandon Cook (drums) plus relatively recent additions Alex Procter (guitar) and Trent Jackson (bass) – recorded the song at The Motor Museum in Liverpool.

Sirens will rapidly induce anticipation for the release of People Like Me & You, which promises to be their biggest, brightest and most expansive record to date with production elements and fresh sonic touches that broaden their guitar/bass/drums foundations. It’s a collection filled with personal and quintessential Sherlocks lyrical themes that are informed by the passing of time and the realisation that everyone is stepping into different stages in their lives – touching upon nostalgia, ageing, flawed relationships and escaping the rat race on wild, woozy weekends.

As frontman Crook teases, “The new album is honestly full of really good songs with strong choruses. When we were going in to make this album, we went in there with ideas as opposed to fully fledged songs and I believe that’s where the magic lies in this record. We went with our gut every single time when it came to making decisions about the structures, the lyrics and all the sounds used to create something we would be proud of and I’m absolutely blown away with how it has turned out.“I genuinely believe it’s our best record yet for one simple reason – we’ve all been a lot more open to ideas and trying things we perhaps wouldn’t have in the past which has only widened the spectrum of where we can go next. I’m so excited about this record and I know the fans are gonna love it!” The Sherlocks recently announced details of their biggest UK headline tour to date. OCTOBER5th – Bristol, O2 Academy6th – Birmingham, O2 Institute7th – Norwich, Waterfront12th – Glasgow, St. Luke’s13th – Newcastle, University14th – Nottingham, Rock City19th – London, Islington Assembly Hall20th – Southampton, Engine Room21st – Brighton, Concorde 226th – Liverpool, O2 Academy27th – Manchester, Academy NOVEMBER4th – Sheffield, O2 Academy
