The Sherlocks on Live at Leeds: “We keep it real”

THE Sherlocks have promised to “bring the rock ‘n’ roll” after they were announced as headliners at the Live at Leeds festival.

The Bolton-on-Dearne four-piece have turned hard work into a word-of-mouth success and are now creeping higher up festivals bills.

The lads will join Metronomy, Tom Grennan, Kate Tempest, Drenge, Black Honey, Swim Deep, Dream Wife, Goat Girl and more at Live at Leeds on Saturday, May 4.

The Sherlocks said: “We’re really looking forward to playing in front of the Leeds crowd again.

“We will bring the rock ‘n’ roll. No backing tracks, how many bands can say that these days? Bring it on.”

Speaking about the second wave of acts joining the line-up, festival director Andy Smith said: “This year’s Live at Leeds line-up is one of our most eclectic to date, and we’re really proud of how it’s shaping up. 

“We have been trying to get Kate Tempest for years so I’m pleased that it has finally happened. 

“It’s fantastic to see Drenge returning with a new album in time for this year’s festival.

“Live at Leeds has always supported guitar music, and this year is no different with a huge representation of young British talent, including The Sherlocks, whenyoung, The Academic, Larkins and The Slow Readers Club.”

He added: “There’s still some more to be announced and as usual one or two surprise performances, we can’t wait for May when the summer starts.”

Tickets start from £38 plus booking fee and are available from www.liveatleeds.com.
