The Sherlocks release new track & announce even more dates - Listen

The Sherlocks have today announced the release of their new single titled ‘Was It Really Worth It?’. The track features anthemic guitars, bold drums and an instantly catchy chorus as frontman Kiaran Crook delivers heartfelt vocals and asks “Was it really worth it?.

Explains Crook of the single; “’Was it really worth it?’ is a high energy tune but maintains a very positive message underneath all the chaos. The chorus is huge and I believe it will be a fan favourite that sticks with us forever. It’s basically about the battle of pleasing someone who can’t be pleased or in other words it’s summed up in the last verse ‘fighting a battle that can’t be won’. It is definitely an anthem of ours and it’s pretty much been a favourite of mine since I wrote it years ago.”

After a sold out UK Tour last September, Sheffield four-piece The Sherlocks announce that due to high demand they’ve added 3 more dates onto their already extensive forthcoming UK & Ireland tour which begins this February. New dates added include ABC in Glasgow, Heaven in London and Church in Leeds (see full dates at bottom), tickets for these go on sale this Friday 27th January.

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 great support from the likes of Steve Lamacq, Annie Mac & 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.

Having secured a much coveted support slot on the Libertine’s Arena Tour in 2016, as well as festival slots at Reading, Leeds and Bestival amongst others, the band are embarking on a headline tour in February including venues such as Sheffield’s Foundry, Edinburgh’s Electric Circus & Nottingham’s Rescue Rooms which have already sold out.

The Sherlocks are Kiaran Crook (Lead vocals/Rhythm Guitar), Josh Davidson (Vocals/lead Guitar), Andy Davidson (Backing Vocals/Bass Guitar) and Brandon Crook (drums).
