THE DEARNE Valley’s band of brothers will be living an American dream after announcing plans to tour the USA and Canada.
Less than a fortnight after their debut album soared into the Top 10, The Sherlocks revealed details of a ten-date tour taking in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Toronto.
The Bolton-on-Dearne-based four-piece — Kiaran and Brandon Crook and Josh and Andy Davidson — found out their first release Live for the Moment had taken the number six spot in the UK album chart while they were in the middle of playing the Leeds and Reading Festival over the bank holiday weekend.
It topped off a sensational summer which saw the four former Wath schoolboys supporting Kings of Leon and Richard Ashcroft.
Singer Kiaran Crook paid tribute to the band’s fans, saying: “What started as a hobby has incredibly turned into a career.
“But this is all down to our fans for investing their time into our band.
“The number of people calling for this album has been truly overwhelming.
“This is what makes our story so special, that the people have decided to back a real band and we will be forever grateful to them for that.”
Closer to home, The Sherlocks play Nottingham Rock City on September 16 and Sheffield O2 Academy on September 23.
