Slow-Burn Overnight Sensation The Sherlocks Unleash New Music & Line-Up @ Chalk Brighton

The Sherlocks - who visit Brighton in March - were certainly a slow-burn overnight sensation. 


Ascending swiftly from stints in working men's clubs to rammed, buzzing and riotous gigs on the nearby Sheffield scene, they were embraced as the city's next big guitar stars, set to launch the next wave of Sheffield alt-rock. 

However, just like every other band, The Sherlocks' plans for 2020 were scuppered by coronavirus. 

Completing an initial low-key UK tour in early March to support their 2019 second album Under Your Sky, their further planned tours of America and the Far East were forced to be scrapped. 

And while the rest of the world was put on hold, The Sherlocks were undergoing a rebirth. 

 
Returning with a new line up and new ideas, the band are soon set to release their anticipated forthcoming album, World I Understand. 

As well as this, the four-piece are currently touring the UK as part of their Keep Our Independent Venues Alive tour – a run of shows across the UK's most cherished independent venues to help support these spaces during their most challenging times.
 
With the ammunition of new material under their belts, next year's headline tour is not one to be missed. 

"We can't wait to get back out on tour with this new record," says Kiaran Crook. 

"It is without a doubt our strongest one yet, and one that's ready-made for the live performances."
 
The Sherlocks play Chalk, Brighton, on 10th March 2022. Tickets are on sale via https://www.seetickets.com/tour/the-sherlocks.
